Why Use Cultrex Poly-L-Ornithine?

Poly-L-Ornithine, a highly positively charged synthetic amino acid chain, is commonly used as a coating agent to promote cell adhesion in culture on tissue culture-treated plastic or glass surfaces. Moreover, Poly-L-Ornithine along or in combination with Fibronectin or Laminin-I is frequently used to enhance attachment and differentiation of various types of neuronal and neural stem cells. This product is provided ready-to-use, as 0.01% solution in sterile water, and contains polymers in the 30,000 - 70,000 Da range.
