LunaGel – Photocrosslinkable Extracellular Matrix – Hyaluronic Acid

LunaGel™ – Hyaluronic acid (HA) is photocrosslinkable extracellular matrix based on high molecular weight HA, a linear polysaccharide consisting of alternating D-glucuronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine units found in connective tissues. LunaGel™ – HA has applications as a matrix for 3D cell culture, tissue engineering, 3D bioprinting, and drug delivery.

LunaGel™ is supplied as a sterile solution with freeze-dried photoinitiator. Available as Low Stiffness (0 – 6.5 kPa) and High Stiffness kit (0 – 25 kPa).

Reconstitute the photoinitiator in PBS, mix with LunaGel™ ECM and cells, and photocrosslink the solution using the  Luna Crosslinker™ to form 3D cell culture models. By controlling the duration of light exposure you can produce hydrogels with a specified stiffness. Add your favourite culture media and you’re culturing in 3D!



LunaGel™ ECM has been successfully used in a wide range of applications including cell attachment and proliferation, stem cell culture and differentiation, mechanotransduction assays, cancer spheroid assays, angiogenesis assays, 3D bioprinting, tissue engineering, and more.
