What is beMatrix™ Low Endotoxin Gelatin?
beMatrix™ low endotoxin gelatin is an extremely high quality gelatin, available in either high or low Bloom, that has less than 10 endotoxin units (EU)/g. Endotoxins are lipopolysaccharides found in the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria. The presence of endotoxins in blood elicits a strong immune response which can lead to septic shock and possibly death.
In 2009, Nitta Gelatin invested in a state-of-the-art biological cleanroom for producing beMatrix™. beMatrix™ low endotoxin gelatin is derived from alkaline treated porcine skin and has a variety of potential applications in the fields of regenerative medicine, medical devices and scientific research.
beMatrix™ low endotoxin gelatin has an MAF filed with the U.S. FDA.
