PhotoGel®-RUT is a methacrylated gelatin kit. These 3D gelatin hydrogels can be prepared at various concentrations and photocrosslinked (400-450nm) to provide various gel stiffness. Each kit contains 1 gram (2 x 500 mg) of methacrylated gelatin and ruthenium photoinitiator.
Advanced BioMatrix offers PhotoGel® RUT Kit, a purified methacrylated gelatin kit for visible light (400-450 nm) photocrosslinkable hydrogels. PhotoGel® provides 3D tunable gels with the unique attributes to be prepared at various concentrations and crosslinked to provide various gel stiffness.
This PhotoGel® kit consists of purified methacrylated porcine gelatin and a Visible Light Photoinitiator (400-450 nm). The gelatin is type A 300 bloom.
PhotoGel® is produced from methacrylated gelatin where the gelatin has been modified by reacting the free amines, primarily the e-amines groups of the lysine residues as well as the a-amines groups on the N-termini. >75% of the total lysine residues of the gelatin molecule have been methacrylated. The photoinitiator consists of Ruthenium and Sodium Persulfate to be formulated in 1X cell culture media or PBS, which allows visible light photocrosslinking of the collagen at 400-450 nm.
For aseptic work, we recommend filtering the solubilized ruthenium and sodium persulfate through 0.2 micron button filters, as the photoinitiators do not come sterile.
