Cellusponge Series
 Cellusponge
 3D HPC (Hydroxypropylcellulose) scaffold.
 Designed for cells requiring no specific ligands and various cell
 Cellusponge-Coll(Cellusponge coating
Used in stem cells.
HMSC cells grew 14 times after 7 days and differentiate into
neurons and glial cells after 14 days(Usually it takes 28 days).
 Cellusponge-Gal(Cellusponge coating
Designed for hepatocyte cells, especially primary hepatocytes.
Hepatocytes formed 3D, functional spheroids after 1 day of
seeding and the spheroids maintained stable for at least 40
days and up to 100 days.

Degradable 3D Scaffold
 Biodegradable 3D scaffold
 Can’t control degrading time
 Example
Go Matrix
 Degradable 3D scaffold when you need
 Obtaining the cells at the time you need
 Examples

Degradable 3D ScaffoldCellusponge CB Series
 is a quick and easy way to
recover cells or spheroids
from Cellusponge CB
series, using CBX (a
dissolving buffer).
 is designed to dissolve
Cellusponges CB series
quickly & completely
without disrupting cell
spheroids, clusters or
other 3D structures.

Cell Alignment Plate-Vivoalign
 Enhancing cell differentiation
 Increasing morphogenesis
 More in-vivo-like in cells, e.g. cardiac
myoblast, skeletal myoblast, etc.
 Material used is proved to be coated
various proteins, ECM & peptides
Cell Alignment Plate-Vivoalign
H9C2 cells on the Vivoalign had formed long thin multinucleated tubes (above)
while those on 2D petri dish
had broader, shorter & unaligned multinucleated cells(below).
Cell Alignment Plate-Vivoalign
Differentiation of C2C12 cells on the Vivoalign fused to form
longer myotubes.(above) & those on 2D petri dish(below).
Vivoalign Applications
 Cell Biology
 Cell Proliferation
 Drug Screening
 ECM Production
 Engineering Muscle Tissue
