Gelin-S® is thiol-modified gelatin (denatured collagen) and is a component of the HyStem®-C, and HyStem-HP hydrogel kits. Most cells do not grow well on Gelin-S–only hydrogels. Instead, Gelin-S should be used in conjunction with Glycosil® (thiol-modified hyaluronic acid) or Heprasil® (thiol-modified hyaluronic acid with thiol-modified heparin). Reconstituted Gelin-S remains liquid at 15 to 37°C.
The gelatin used to make Gelin-S is from Type A Gelatin, Bloom 250, derived from porcine skin.
Gelin-S® (thiol-modified gelatin) is packaged in 5.0 mL vials containing 50mg. Vials are blanketed by nitrogen and under a slight vacuum.
Store Gelin-S in the original vial, unopened, at -20 °C for up to one year. Do not uncap the Gelin-S vials since they will crosslink in the presence of oxygen. Use a syringe and needle to add DG Water to the vials.
Note: It is recommended to reconstitute each vial in its entirety.
