I was interested in using Matrigel as a 3D matrix but there are a few questions I cannot answer so far. If some of you are using Matrigel you might be able to help me find some answers?!
First of all, it seems unlikely that Matrigel will ever be approved by FDA as a componant in an implant as it is derived from mouse sarcoma. Am I right ?
Also, I am wondering how long the Matrigel would stay "active" once gelled, especially the laminin. I doubt that such a gel could be stored a few months before use ?
Thanks to you who might have some answers!
