Seallagen (Echinoderm Type I Collagen-Lyophilized) constitutes an ideal standard for collagen purity (>98% collagen content), functionality, and one of the most native-like collagen available as of today. Isolated from echinoderm mutable collagenous tissue (MCT) known by its unique collagen composition, Seallagen shows excellent biocompatibility and safety, due to key biological properties, such as biodegradability and low antigenicity, eliminating the risk of serious disease transmission. Marine Essence Biosciences manufacturing processes comply with stringent quality standards that have proven to yield unsurpassed lot-to-lot consistency.
- Type I Collagen Standard
- Antigen for Antibody Production
- Coating Material for Cell Culture and Medical Devices
- Formation of Collagen Gels and Bioinks
- Fabrication of Biomaterials and Medical Devices
To ensure lot-to-lot consistency, this produce is tested by SDS-PAGE, HYP content, amino acid profile and FTIR to conform to characteristics of a standard reference collagen type-I (Human, Bovine and Rat Tail). Purity and retention of native helical structure was controlled by SDS-PAGE gel electrophoresis.
Purity analysis by native gel electrophoresis and infrared spectroscopy, showing repeatability batch-to-batch in product quality. ME-Bio MCT production batches 1 to 7. Std: Bovine collagen type-I standard (PureCol, Advanced Biomatrix). Inserted reference FTIR for type-I collagen
