Ordering GrowDex

UPM’s GrowDex® hydrogel is a natural, animal free matrix prepared from sustainable sources. It is used to create a three dimensional (3D) micro-environment for a variety of cell culture experiments. Supplied ready to use, GrowDex can be mixed directly with cells and culture media, no additional preparation steps are required. GrowDex is stored and used at room temperature and it can be completely removed by a simple enzymatic step using UPM GrowDase™ enzyme for cell recovery.

GrowDex® is available in 5 and 10 ml packaging supplied in syringes.

GrowDex® is supplied at a working concentration of 1.5%. It is not a concentrate. GrowDex® can be used in concentrations between 0.2-1.5 %, which enables cell culturing on 50-375 wells in a 96-well plate. The amount of GrowDase™ required for cell recovery is dependent on the amount of GrowDex® (cellulose) present in the sample. One GrowDase™ vial (2.5 ml) can degrade 5 ml of GrowDex®.
