Amerigo Scientific now introduces ELAREM Matrix Kit that provides a cell culture system based on human Platelet Lysate that is suitable for 2D and 3D cell culture applications. This new ELAREM Matrix Kit is for in vitro and manufacturing use only, and is not intended for direct therapeutic use. Cell culture is a versatile tool in life science research that enables the growth of eukaryotic or prokaryotic cells under carefully controlled conditions. These conditions generally consist of a suitable vessel with media, reagents, antibiotics and antimycotics, and gases. Factors affecting culture conditions need to be adjusted according to different cell types and experimental needs. Amerigo Scientific offers a wide range of high-quality products available to help with this process, including cell culture sera, media, and various reagents, and ELAREM Matrix Kit is now added in the portfolio. This ELAREM Matrix Kit provides a cell culture system based on human Platelet Lysate that is suitable for 2D and 3D cell culture applications. The kit consists of ELAREM™ Matrix, a human Platelet Lysate gel, and ELAREM Accelerator, a xeno-free additive inducing the instant gelation of the scaffold. This combination enables the three-dimensional embedding of cells within the gel scaffold as well as the two-dimensional cell seeding on a viscous surface. "The patent-protected technology provides both a nutrient source and a viscous scaffold in one—resembling the natural cell environment. Cells benefit from a uniform growth factor distribution and can grow homogeneously in several layers, which minimizes contact inhibition with artificial biomaterials. Consequently, the cell morphology is closer to its native morphology." said Nina Cooper, Ph.D., the chief scientist at Amerigo Scientific. "The new ELAREM Matrix Kit together with other various reagents will help researchers rapidly obtain much more information about the sample, improve laboratory efficiency and allow them to get results faster."
