New Products. DE Collagenase
This new Defined Enriched Collagenase developed by VitaCyte is blended with neutral potease and with distinct collagenase activity. This system is working with a fixed amount of purified Protease and removed of contaminants in majority of crude collagenase. This makes it even more consistent, convenient and cost effective.
