"The 3-D Life PVA-CD Hydrogel suits very well for 3-D cell culture. Not only the gel stiffness can be varied but also the concentration of covalently attached cysteine-containing peptides, such as RGD peptides."
Markus Rimann, Ph.D., ZHAW, Wädenswil, Switzerland

De novo epithelial lumen formation by mammary epithelial cells in 3-D Life Hydrogel:


Mammary epithelial cells (MCF10A) grown for 14 days in 3-D Life Dextran-PEG gel modified with RGD Peptide form epithelia enclosing a lumen (left panel). Lumen formation is impaired when a shRNA specific for the actin nucleator formin-like 2 (FMNL2) is expressed (right panel). Green: F-actin staining. Red: red fluorescent protein indicating activated shRNA transcription. For more information see Grikscheit K, Frank T, Wang Y, Grosse R. (2015). J. Cell Biol. 209:367-76.

"3-D Life hydrogels were especially suited for long term epithelial cultures with an easy to optimize system and high yield of spheroid formation.", Dr. Katharina Grikscheit, University of Marburg.
