PhotoSericin® is a purified and lyophilized methacrylated sericin powder for photocrosslinkable hydrogels. PhotoSericin® is a highly versatile solution designed for researchers and scientists seeking advanced materials for tissue engineering, drug delivery, and regenerative medicine applications. PhotoSericin® provides 3D tunable gels with the unique attributes to be prepared at various concentrations and crosslinked to provide various gel stiffnesses.
PhotoSericin® is offered in convenient kits that include a selected photoinitiator, provided separately as a powder. This allows for customization and precise control over the crosslinking process.
|Item||Catalog Number||Photoinitiator Included|
|PhotoSericin® with LAP||5431-1KIT||LAP (405nm)|
|PhotoSericin® with Ruthenium||5432-1KIT||Ruthenium (400-450nm)|
PhotoSericin® is produced from sericin that has been modified by reacting the hydroxyl groups of sericin with the methacrylate functional groups, forming a strong covalent bond.
