Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) November 30, 2010 -- MD Bioproducts, a division of MD Biosciences and a global biotechnology company focused in inflammations and neurology research, announces the release of a panel of collagens, antibodies and collagen-related products for use in a variety of cell culture and inflammations related applications. New products include:
     


Collagen occurs in various places throughout the body. Type I Collagen is the most abundant collagen and is found in scar tissue, skin, tendon, artery walls and bone. Type II collagen is found predominately, but not exclusively in cartilage where its primary role is to provide cartilage with tensile strength and elasticity. Collagen IV is the main collagen that forms the cell basement membrane. Various collagens have been used in immunology research spanning applications such as coating surfaces with extracellular matrices (ECM), which promotes cell attachment and monolayer formation, to disease induction in pre-clinical efficacy studies.

MD Bioproducts has carried a wide array of collagen products and is continually expanding its portfolio. The launch of a range of Collagen Type I proteins can be used for surface coating and 3D gel formation. The addition of collagen antibodies from various species can be used in applications such western blotting, IHC and ELISA detection.
