Rousselot®, booth 326, Bioconvention, Philadelphia, PA, United States, 03 – 06 June 2019.
Rousselot® will highlight new research on its X-Pure® range at this year’s Bioconvention. As intensely purified medical grade gelatins and collagens, X-Pure has shown huge potential in biomedical applications since its launch last year.
New study: X-Pure for optimal cell viability
With unrivalled levels of purity and safety, X-Pure’s potential in advanced medical applications and research projects, has been clearly evidenced in a number of studies. Indeed, Rousselot’s R&D experts, in collaboration with renowned universities, have conducted extensive research to understand how these key ingredients behave in biomedical applications, where cell viability is key.
A recent study on the influence of endotoxin on cellular activities showed the positive effect of low endotoxin levels on stem cell differentiation and on cell viability during transport and storage. Further details can be discussed with Rousselot Research & Development experts at booth 326.
TheX-Pure range: ground-breaking safety in biomedical applications
The natural origin and physicochemical properties of gelatin are crucial in the biopharmaceutical industry. Traditionally manufactured gelatins and collagens typically contain endotoxins which can exceed the limits recommended by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA). High levels of endotoxins may affect cell viability in cell culturing or 3D printing applications, for example, as well as causing irreversible immune reactions when used in in-body applications.
Rousselot’s X-Pure is the first complete range of highly purified gelatins and collagens containing endotoxin levels below 10 EU/g, A biomaterial of choice, X-Pure is used in various applications such as:
- Regenerative medicine applications, including implantable membranes, (stem) cell culture, 3D (bio) printing, advanced drug delivery and tissue engineering
- Hemostatic applications for bleeding control using gelatin powders, sponges, strips, or fibers
- Parenteral applications as a safe excipient for vaccines and other injectables to achieve optimal drug delivery.
