Platelet Matrix: 3D Cell Culture System - more details

Key Benefits

  • A human-derived product that is rich in growth factors and proteins which maximize cell growth.
  • Cell expansion can be performed under standardised and animal-free conditions.
  • Increases cell growth kinetics and reduces cell doubling time.
  • Enhances stem cell proliferation and reduces supplementation while also maintaining cell phenotype and differentiation potential.
  • The viscous consistency of Platelet Matrix enables non-enzymatic passaging with a convenient harvesting and reseeding procedure.


  • For the expansion of stem cells in a 3D (adherent cell growth) system.
  • Recommended for Mesenchymal Stromal Cells from Bone Marrow (hMSC-BM), Umbilical Cord (hMSC-UC) and Adipose Tissue (hMSC-AT); and also Human Dermal Fibroblasts (HDF).

Quality assured

  • Platelet Matrix is manufactured from platelet units obtained from healthy blood donors who have been is screened for various adventitious agents including HIV, HCV, HBV, CMV, Treponema pallidum and Syphilis.
  • Each batch is filtered to 0.1 micron to ensure sterilization.
  • Each batch of Platelet Matrix is tested for the absence of bacteria, fungi, yeast and Mycoplasma. Batches are also tested for endotoxin contamination.
  • Full batch documentation is available, including Certificates of Analysis.
