β-Gel

β-Gel

β-Gel is a pancreo-mimetic gel that contains native pancreatic proteins and oxygen producing compounds thus providing a suitable support matrix to the islets and supplying them with oxygen over the first week while they are most vulnerable.

An extended residence time in the β-Gel will benefit islet cohesion and protection while inclusion of gel-integrated pancreo-mimetic ECM molecules will promote long term islet integration and viability.
