Synthetic vs. Biological Hydrogels
Extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and synthetic hydrogels help cultured cells grow and function in an in vivo-like environment, so choosing the right product is critical.
In this Teach me in 10, we are joined by Dr. Anette Funfak, Field Application manager at Corning Life Sciences. She reviews different types of biological and synthetic hydrogels, as well as their characteristics, limitations and functional applications for building in vivo-like environments.
