Soft and turbid collagen gel disks were previously converted into strong and transparent gel membranes utilizing a concept for the vitrification of heat-denatured of proteins. This novel stable and transparent gel has been termed 'vitrigel'. By encompassing the collagen vitrigel membrane in a nylon frame, it can be easily handled with tweezers, and functions as an excellent scaffold for three-dimensional cell culture models, as cells can be cultured on both sides. Here, we investigated the… CONTINUE READING
