Providing Researchers with the Gold Standard in Tissue Engineering

Centennial, Colo. — January  24, 2023 — Essent Biologics™, a leading supplier of human-derived cell and scaffold materials, today announced availability of its Human Native Tissue-Derived Type I Atelocollagen for the cell and tissue engineering industry.  Extracted and purified from human tissue, Essent’s Human Native Tissue-Derived Type I Atelocollagen contains comprehensive properties—making it the first choice for two- and three-dimensional cell culture, labware coating applications, drug delivery, bioprinting, and as a scaffold for a myriad tissue engineering modalities.

As the main structural protein in the human body, native Type I collagen is crucial to a vast array of medical and scientific research, providing structure to 3D scaffolds and an ideal ex-vivo environment for the attachment, proliferation, differentiation, and migration of cells. Essent’s Human Native Tissue-Derived Type I Atelocollagen is isolated from the skin of consenting tissue donors aged 18-30 years old, processed under antibiotic-free conditions and evaluated for purity, identity, functionality, sterility, and endotoxin.

“We are thrilled to launch our Human Native Tissue-Derived Atelocollagen to the market,” said Corey Stone, President of Essent Biologics. “With a purity ranging from 95-100%, our collagen is poised to provide one of the highest standards in quality—allowing our customers to have a better and more consistent starting material in their research and manufacturing.”

Essent’s Human Native Tissue-Derived Type I Atelocollagen is optimal for many cell and tissue engineering applications because it has undergone the natural extracellular post-translational modifications and interacted with other biomolecules from the matrisome.
