amsbio supplies Mussel Adhesive Protein based maTrix (MAPTrixTM) recombinant extracellular matrix (ECM) that act as biometic mimics for traditional basement membrane extracts.
MAPTrixTM replaces ECM with genetically incorporated bioactive peptides (recognition peptides) that provide an environment for the maintenance of cells under serum and feeder-free conditions.
- Chemically defined
- Free from animal proteins
- Low cost compared to traditional ECM
- Eliminates risk of animal or viral infectious agents in cell cultures
- Helps comply with FDA recommendations for animal-free component
- Ready to use and compatible with standard coating protocols
- Improved cell morphology and cell proliferation
