Product Information

A "physically strong" collagen sponge (96-well plate size) derived from bovine dermal type I collagen that shows resistance to compressive loading. Culturing with dynamic stimulus (such as pressure) can mimic in-vivo-like cell response as shown in some arthritic cell culture models.


  • Cell culture under dynamic stimuli
  • 3D cell culture
  • Carrier for cell transplant


  • Retains structural rigidity during repeated compression loading of 10-20 kPa
  • Sized for 96 well plates


"Mechanical stimulus culture assay using MIGHTY." (K. Shimomura, K. Nakata et al. Osaka University, Faculty of Medicine)

Forty kPa of repeated compressive load for 1 hour induced the expression of PEG2, IL6 and IL8, which are correlated to arthritis, after three days cultivation on MIGHTY.

Dexamethasone (Dex), anti-inflammatory agent, reduced the expression of PEG2, IL6 and IL8 in a concentration-dependent manner. These results indicate MIGHTY can be used for in vitro arthritis models.
