3-D Life FG-PVA is a component of the 3-D Life Hydrogel system. It contains maleimide-functionalized polyvinyl alcohol (Mal-PVA). It can be used together with PEG-Link (Cat. No. L50-1 or L50-3) or CD-Link (Cat. No. L60-1 or L60-3) to set up fast gelling, cell-compatible hydrogels. 10 x CB (pH 5.5) buffer allows control of pH and osmotic conditions during gel formation in the presence of cells.
