VitroCol® collagen is the first widely available, naturally produced purified human collagen for research purposes. VitroCol® sets the standard for purity (>99% collagen content), functionality and represents the only native-like human collagen offered.
VitroCol® collagen is naturally secreted from human neo-natal fibroblast cells. The human fibroblasts are cultured in optimal conditions allowing the fibroblast to naturally and efficiently secret extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix is then processed and purified to yield the naturally produced human collagen.
VitroCol® is approximately 97% Type I human collagen with the remainder being comprised of Type III collagen. VitroCol® is supplied at approximately 3 mg/ml concentration. The concentration for each specific lot is provided on a Certificate of Analysis that is available with the purchase of each product. VitroCol® is soluble atelocollagen in 0.01 N HCI, therefore, the pH is 2.
VitroCol® is especially ideal for human cell culture systems when coating of surfaces, providing preparations of thin layers of culturing cells, or use as a solid gel. VitroCol® human collagen is provided in user-friendly packaging for use and storage. VitroCol® is sterile filtered and is supplied as a ready to use solution.
