Outline

Collagen membrane for tissue culturing MEM-01 Photo

Collagen membrane is specially developed from highly purified bovine dermal type I Atelocollagen for single and double layer tissue culture studies. It is particularly suitable for studying the molecular interactions between two different cell types by culturing on both sides of the membrane. It is potentially useful for the study of artificial organs and in the emerging field of tissue engineering. The membrane is permeable and allows free passage of amino acids and small molecules, which is important for the absorption and exchange of molecules through the membrane using cell polarity.

 

Advantages

  1. Since the collagen membrane is fully permeable for small molecules, cells cultured on it can absorb nutrients, excrete metabolic wastes and release biochemical products across the membrane. The system therefore permits the long-term maintenance of cells similar to in vivo systems. The cells also have the advantage of utilizing its polarity for the exchange of molecules across the membrane. The system is particularly useful for cell differentiation and tissue engineering studies.
  2. Since two different cell types can be cultured on both sides of the membrane, it is particularly useful for cell and molecular interaction studies.
  3. The permeable collagen membrane is very suitable for basic studies and for the maintenance of artificial skin, artificial pancreas and other vital organs.
