PEGgel Kit is a ready to use Polyethylene (glycol) diacrylate-based (PEGDA) hydrogel; containing all the necessary components to create a simple PEGDA hydrogel. PEGgel is an emerging scaffold for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine since polymerization can occur rapidly at room temperature and requires low energy input, has high water content, is elastic, and can be customized to include a variety of biological molecules. PEGDA is a synthetic, hydrophilic starting material which forms hydrogels in the presence of photoinitiator and UV light. PEGDA hydrogels are easily customizable since ECM proteins and/or growth factors can be incorporated into a hydrogel and its stiffness can be modulated from 10-100 kPa. PEGDA is widely recognized as biocompatible, non-immunogenic, and capable of chemical manipulation to incorporate attachment peptides, degradable peptides, and other moieties.



Storage and Stability Store PEGDA and PEGcure in original vials at -20 °C for up to one year.
Reconstituted solutions can be stored at -20 °C for ~ one month.
