Our products


JellaGel™ is a Next Generation Collagen Type 0 Hydrogel for in vitro cell culture and tissue engineering, offering customers a natural, non-mammalian alternative to mammalian and synthetic hydrogels that are currently on the market.

Hydrogels are an important tool in a researcher mission to grow and maintain cells successfully. Two-dimensional cell culture has been used for some time now, but growing cells in flat layers on plastic surfaces does not accurately model the in vivo state. Hydrogels allow cells to grow and interact with all of their surroundings thanks to the 3D environment. Cells grown in 3D models have proven to be more physiologically relevant, with improved cell viability, morphology, proliferation, and differentiation.

JellaGel provides customers with a biochemically simple, consistent, and easy to use hydrogel that can transform their research. One of the greatest features of JellaGel is that it can be used at room temperature meaning there is no need for ice or cold rooms, unlike some hydrogels currently on the market. JellaGel is manufactured from Jellyfish collagen, which can be defined as “Collagen Type 0” due to its homogeneity to the mammalian types I, II, III, V, and IX.

This product is conveniently supplied in kit format with JellaGel solution, buffer and crosslinker for ease of use.

Biochemically Simple No unwanted/undefined growth factors or biological
contaminants that could negatively influence the
culture of cells . Although biochemically simple, other
biological agents (e.g. growth factors) can be added to
JellaGel to provide a specific biological response (e.g.
Non-mammalian & disease vector free Collagen Type 0 derived from Jellyfish, avoiding the ethical and safety concerns associated with mammalian collagen.
Translatability Suitable for translation from in vitro to in vivo applications.
Batch to batch consistency Offers improved research productivity allowing security of product consistency and reproducible results.
Evolutionary ancient collagen demonstrating sequence homolgy to collagen I, II, III & V Universal applications for multiple cell types and regenerative medicine.
Produced in a ISO13485:2016 facility Manufactured in a controlled and safe environment, fulfilling the expectations of customers and regulatory requirements.
Inert Material Cleaner at miRNA level when compared to mammalian alternatives giving customers a cleaner cell culture with less off-target effects.
Easy to use An easy to use hydrogel that doesn't require the use of
ice or cold rooms. JellaGel can be formulated into a self sustaining
hydrogel at room temperature.

MCF7 Breast Cancer Spheroids on JellaGel

JellaGel Breast Cancer Spheroid

JellaGel was used to grow MCF7  Breast Cancer Spheroids in 3D

Spheroidal structures were formed immediately using JellaGel and could be readily imaged without extensive optimisation. Spheroids formed were spherical and uniform in size.
