Rousselot

At Rousselot we have drawn upon our 130 years of worldwide expertise and a proven track record of pharmaceutical gelatins to develop X-Pure®. A range of purified gelatins specifically designed for (bio)medical applications. 

X-Pure is the first complete range of highly purified gelatins with endotoxin levels below 10 EU/g. Endotoxins are pyrogens and when present in a biomaterial can cause febrile responses. Endotoxins are extremely resistant to temperature and difficult to remove by conventional methods. Thanks to Rousselot®’s proprietary purification process, X pure has shown to have a reduced pyrogenic activity reducing potential immune reactions.

Discover X-Pure GelMA, the latest addition to X-Pure portfolio
Gelatin can be modified with Methacryloyl to form GelMA which can be crosslinked to increase mechanical strength and prevent melting of gelatin-based constructs. In GelMA hydrogels, the inherent bioactivity, biodegradability, and cell compatibility of gelatin are combined with the tunability of photo-crosslinking. This combination holds a great potential for the creation of made-to-measure biological environments for the culture of various eukaryotic cells at body temperature.
X-Pure GelMA offers ultra-high purity level and will be available in both research grade & GMP grade, with all necessary documentation for approval by regulatory authorities worldwide.

Rousselot Biomedical is committed to facilitating the use of X-Pure in your applications and to help you “Advance medical science”. With a proven track record of gelatin and collagen specifically used in pharmaceutical applications, Rousselot is recognized for its global expertise.

TissueLabs 

TissueLabs is the platform for creating organs and tissues in the lab.

Our ECM-based hydrogels, MatriXpec™, are developed to offer tissue-specific microenvironments for 3D cell culture and 3D bioprinting. MatriXpec™ hydrogels allow running experiments in truly representative substrates that mimic the biological clues of the native extracellular matrix. They are available for 16 different tissues: Adipose, Bone, Brain, Cartilage, Colon, Intestine, Kidney, Liver, Lung, Muscle, Myocardium, Pancreas, Skin, Spleen, Stomach, and Vascular. Besides the conventional thermocrosslinkable MatriXpec™, we also offer it in combination with gelatin methacrylate (GelMA) - allowing photocrosslinking - and alginate/xanthan - allowing chemical crosslinking.

For those working with epithelial tissues, we offer our proprietary platform, MatriWell™, cell culture inserts were designed for fabricating 3D epithelial barriers in vitro. They contain a hydrogel with tissue-specific extracellular matrix proteins so that when cells are cultured on MatriWell™ they are exposed to an air interface on their top and a near-liquid interface on their bottom, an "air-gel interface". This setup mimics the exact microenvironment cells would find in the native tissue. 

Thinking about the researchers willing to start working with 3D bioprinting, we developed TissueStart™, the most cost-effective 3D bioprinter on the market. TissueStart™ is constructed with premium plexiglass for high resistance, long durability, and easy cleaning. It weighs only 3.6kg and does not require air compressors to operate, presenting the smallest footprint on the market. TissueStart™ is also the only 3D bioprinter offering our exclusive Mixtrusor™ system for combining multiple bioinks, allowing the fabrication of complex 3D tissues
