AMSBIO is pleased to announce the launch of Extragel.

Available ex-stock, with overnight shipment, Extragel is a reconstituted matrix hydrogel formed by basement membrane components extracted from mouse tumor tissues which are rich in extracellular matrix proteins. Designed to be used undiluted or diluted to a specific protein concentration, Extragel is proven to be a highly effective growth scaffold for in vivo xenograft generation, pluripotent stem cell maintenance / differentiation, angiogenesis and advanced 3D culture applications. Extragel is composed of laminin, collagen IV and heparan sulfate proteoglycans plus various growth factors including epidermal growth factor, platelet-derived growth factor, nerve growth factor, basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2), transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor.

Formulated to be free of LDEV as well as mycotoxins including fungi, bacteria and mycoplasma - researchers using Extragel matrix can generate optimized, gels in under 30 minutes at 37 °C. AMSBIO implements strict quality inspection to ensure unmatched product stability and high batch-to-batch consistency.
