Cultrex Organoid Harvesting Solution Summary

Ready-to-use, non-enzymatic solution to depolymerize basement membrane matrix for harvesting organoids from culture.

Why Use Cultrex Organoid Harvesting Solution?

Organoid cultures exhibit cellular behaviors and morphologies similar to those seen in vivo, however, the adaptation of these models for studying biochemical processes has been impeded by the challenge of separating intact organoids from extra-cellular proteins comprising the hydrogel. Commonly, proteases are employed to degrade these extracellular proteins, however, proteases also degrade proteins on the cell surface and protease activity may carry over into subsequent cultures or lysate preparations. Cultrex Organoid Harvesting Solution provides a non-enzymatic method for depolymerizing extracellular matrix proteins to allow for harvesting of intact organoids for passaging, cryopreservation, or biochemical analysis.

  1. Can the Organoid Harvesting Solution, Catalog # 3700-100-01,  be used to dissociate cells grown on a substrate of Cultrex Rat Collagen 1?

    • The Organoid Harvesting Solution works well with BME (Basement Membrane Extract).  For cells grown on Cultrex Rat Collagen 1, the recommended enzyme to use to dissociate cells is Collagenase. Collagenase treatment at 37oC for 30 minutes is recommended.
