Alvetex 3D Cell Culture Systems

The Alvetex 3D cell culture scaffold is made of highly porous polystyrene – the same material used to make most disposable cell culture plasticware. After coating Alvetex with the extracellular matrix protein of your choice (optional), mammalian cells will adhere and grow on the surface of the device or within the porous matrix, depending upon the device and application.

See Alvetex plasticware formats for more information.

Note: Each unit comes in an individual sterile blister pack.
