Description

 

A thermoreversible gel compatible with LIVE cells.

It can be used to immobilise non-adherent cells and beads by simple warming, and conversely allowing their recovery by simple cooling.

CyGEL™ is unusual in that it is a liquid when cold and a gel when warmed!

What are the key benefits?
CyGEL™ has many applications in imaging, flow cytometry and cell-based screening. It is compatible with LIVE cells, usefully allowing their immobilisation for analysis and subsequent release for ongoing experimentation.

Key benefits include:-

  • optically clear with low autofluorescence
  • controllable and rapid transition from liquid to gel
  • convenient immobilisation of non-adherent cells and beads
  • compatible with GFP and "in gel" fluorescent probes including DRAQ5™

Advantages:

  • allows rapid preparation of cells for gel mounting
  • permits long term analysis of non-adherent cells
  • acts as a support matrix
  • permits sterile, low temperature recovery of cells from gel
  • multiple assay formats and applications including apoptosis detection
