beMatrix gelatin

  • What are the achievements of beMatrix gelatin for medical devices?

    beMatrix gelatin has already been adopted as a raw material for a medical device approved by the FDA. It has also been considered as a raw material for new products from many companies both in Japan and overseas.

  • What is the difference between LS-H and LS-W?

    The average molecular weight is different. Because LS-H is a high molecular weight product and has high gel strength, it is suitable for preparation of hydrogels for DDS and cell transplantation. However, LS-W is a low molecular weight product with low viscosity, and is suitable for coating the material surface. In addition, by mixing these two products, it is also possible to customize physical properties suitable for each user's application.

  • How to select a product from the Cellmatrix series?

    Please choose an optimal product suitable for your experiments. The features of each product are summarized below. If you plan to perform collagen gel embedded culture (3D culture), we recommend Cellmatrix Type I-A.


    Cellmatrix Gelling ability Coating
    Type Ⅰ-A Very good Good
    Type Ⅰ-P Good Good
    Type Ⅰ-C Not good Very good
    Type Ⅲ Not good Very good
    Type Ⅳ   Very good
  • Which product is suitable for collagen 3D culture?

    Cellmatrix Type I-A is recommended. It is the most suitable product for collagen gel embedded culture because of its rapid gelation rate and high gel transparency.

  • Which product is suitable for collagen coating?

    Cellmatrix Type I-C is recommended. It is a product with the lowest viscosity among our Type I collagen products and is suitable for collagen coating culture. 

  • Is it possible to perform collagen gel culture using Cellmatrix Type III or Type IV??

    The above two products cannot form a gel by themselves. However, they can be used in collagen gel culture by mixing them with Cellmatrix Type I--A. Stable gels can be formed if the ratio of Cellmatrix Type I-A is 40% or more.

  • How to dilute the collagen solution?

    Dilution with dilute hydrochloric acid solution at pH 3.0 is recommended. If foam formation occurs during the dilution process, please leave overnight at 4°C and then remove the foam. In case of time constraints, defoaming can also be done by centrifugation.


  • Is it possible to prepare a gel using gelatin?

    Gels can be prepared by placing the gelatin solution in a low temperature environment. However, as it is not crosslinked, the gel promptly liquefies if transferred to a culture environment at 37°C. To perform cell culture on a gelatin gel, crosslinking treatment must be performed beforehand using glutaraldehyde, genipin, or similar reagents.
