Salmon plasma protein from blood of farmed S. salar
- Fibrin gels made from salmon fibrinogen have demonstrated remarkable properties in stem cell and neuron cell survival and growth.
- Salmon fibrin gels have properties superior to mammalian gels in an in vitro angiogenesis model. The salmon gels were 60-188% more efficient than human fibrin gels supporting growth of human endothetlial cells. These results indicate that salmon fibrin may be attractive alternate ECM for support of microvascular network formation.
- Salmon fibrinogen and thrombin can be rehydrated and used at room temperature
- Soft salmon fibrin gels have been shown to promote selection and growth of tumorigenic cells
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Neural cell regrowth
- Pain & CNS studies
- Stem cell research
- 3-D cell culture
- Demonstrated superiority to Matrigel as an extracellular matrix for neuronal cell growth.
- Safety from mammalian pathogens
- Rehydration and use at RT and below.
