Great product for sensitive cells

GrowDex was compatible with our sensitive cells and had no toxic effects. Organogenesis proceeded normally.

GrowDex is a pretty nice extracellular matrix substitute.

My airway cultures grow thicker and more robust with it than they do with collagen (or heavens forbid, nothing at all).

Application Area: Organotypic primary epithelial cell culture

Application Area: Cell Culturing PC12 cells, used this material to get some really cool microscopy images of my cell l
