PhotoDextran® is 1 gram of lyophilized methacrylated dextran. PhotoDextran® provides 3D hydrogels that can be prepared at multiple concentrations and photocrosslinked (requires a photoinitiator) to provide various gel stiffness. Can be mixed with other photocrosslinkable ECM’s.
Advanced BioMatrix offers PhotoDextran®, a methacrylated dextran for photocrosslinkable hydrogels or incorporating within photocrosslinkable hydrogels (such as PhotoGel, PhotoCol or PhotoHA). These hydrogels provide native-like 3D HA gels with the unique attributes to be prepared at various concentrations and photocrosslinked to provide various gel stiffness. PhotoDextran® can be ordered by itself (1 gram lyophilized sterile powder), or as a kit [#5331-1KIT (PhotoDextran®/ with Irgacure), #5332-1KIT (PhotoDextran®/ with LAP) or #5333-1KIT (PhotoDextran®/ with Ruthenium)]
