Rousselot Biomedical has drawn upon Rousselot’s 130+ years of worldwide expertise and proven track record of pharmaceutical gelatins and collagens to develop innovative ranges of purified, modified and non-modified gelatins and collagens for biomedical applications. Offering unique advantages to assure performance, quality and safety from bench to clinic, Rousselot® X-Pure® and Rousselot® Quali-Pure™ provide consistent quality and are backed by strong scientific data and on-going research.
Discover the unique advantages of X-Pure GelMA : Gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA) is probably the most popular biomaterial used in 3D bioprinting, tissue engineering and 3D cell culture applications. However, despite a steadily growing body of scientific literature and patent applications, no clinical application has made it to the patient yet. With Rousselot X-Pure® GelMA, these applications can finally be translated to the clinic. X-Pure® GelMA is different from standard gelMAs:
Discover X-Pure GelDAT, the world’s first purified Gelatin Desaminotyrosine: X-Pure GelDAT has been developed to overcome all the challenges researchers face when using gelatin tyramine (GelTYR). GelDAT has a phenolic modification inspired by sea-mussel adhesion to wet surfaces. This phenolic modification can be crosslinked by two different cues: enzymatically (horseradish peroxidase, tyrosinase or laccase or by photo induction in the presence of a photo initiator. This versatility allows the combination with materials that polymerize under different cues to create more complex structures.
X-Pure GelDAT hydrogels are ideal for research and preclinical development in regenerative medicine, drug release and complex wound dressings due to their ability to crosslink with tissues and their purity.

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.

RegMed XB is a virtual institute that connects Regenerative Medicine research in the Netherlands and Flanders. Crossing borders between public and private institutions, governments, health foundations, doctors, scientists and specialized companies, RegMed XB unites a common goal of the regenerative medicine community: curing chronic disease and getting the cure to the patient.
Strong partnerships backed by research funding of over 40 million euros facilitate ambitious research, currently focussing on providing a cure for patients with type 1 diabetes, kidney failure, osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease. Future research avenues will broaden this scope to include other disease areas.
The unique blend of expertise that comes together in the RegMed XB community creates momentum to truly live up to the promise of regenerative medicine: that of restoring health rather than protracting decline, bettering the lives of millions and at the same time preventing lifelong, expensive care processes: cure instead of care.
The virtual institute has a solid program with a budget of over 10 million euros committed to the identification and support of promising research areas with the potential to developed into investable projects. With the help of an special investment fund, the F1RST Fund, these projects can convert into an adequately funded start-up companies. A recent grant of 56 million euros from the Dutch government allows RegMed XB to grow further and to establish a pilot factory (total cost 110 million euros) for development and pilot production of Regenerative Medicine solutions. When this public-private infrastructure is in place, essential production facilities will become available to researchers and companies at acceptable costs.
The planned budget of the RegMed XB institute is more than 250 million euros for the first 10 years.
