Fremont, California -- Biomerix Corp, said 20 July that it has appointed Gel Co. to distribute its Biomerix 3D Scaffold, a novel three-dimensional tissue scaffold, to researchers in the life-science community across the US.
Biomerix's 3D Scaffold consists of a non-degradable, open-cell polycarbonate polyurethane, designed to mimic the nature and function of the extracellular matrix (ECM), says the company.
According to Biomerix, the scaffold's "unique three-dimensional microarchitecture embodies a network of interconnecting cells and pores constructed to support tissue ingrowth, allowing researchers to study cells in an environment that simulates the conditions of cells in the body."
The chemistry and macroporous structure of the scaffold "supports the growth of myriad cell types and delivers more predictive results compared to standard 2D cell culture systems," the company claims.
Biomerix said the proprietary Biomerix Biomaterial used in the tissue scaffold supports optimal cell proliferation and superior cell viability in both in-vitro and in-vivo studies and has received seven US and international regulatory clearances for a variety of uses.
