PureCol® collagen is known as the standard of all collagens for purity (>99.9% collagen content), functionality, and the most native-like collagen available. PureCol® is isolated from bovine hides sourced from the only controlled, closed herd in the United States. Advanced BioMatrix’s manufacturing processes comply with stringent quality standards that have proven to yield unsurpassed lot-to-lot consistency.

PureCol® collagen is approximately 97% Type I atelocollagen with the remainder being comprised of Type III collagen. PureCol® collagen is supplied at approximately a 3 mg/ml concentration. The concentration for each specific lot is provided on a Certificate of Analysis that is available with the purchase of each product. PureCol® is soluble atelocollagen in 0.01 N HCI, therefore, the pH is 2. PureCol® collagen is ideal for coating of surfaces, providing preparation of thin layers for culturing cells, or use as a solid gel.

PureCol® collagen is provided in a user-friendly packaging for use and storage. PureCol® is sterile filtered and is supplied as a ready to use solution.

Reasons Your Collagen Might Not be Gelling


The pH is not neutral

Double check to make sure the pH is 7.0-7.4. 

Even if using a neutralization solution, the pH may be off due to mixing issues or collagen "hold-up" in pipette tips, slightly altering the collagen:neutralization solution ratio.

Incorrect levels of salts

Ensure the salts of the neutralization collagen solution are isotonic (~300 mOsmo). We accomplish this by adding 1 part of 10X PBS or Media in most collagen hydrogel preparations.


Collagen gels best at 37C. Ensure the temperature does not exceed 38.5C, as the collagen will begin to denature.

Collagen Concentration

Low collagen concentration solutions will have a hard time forming a gel. We recommend keeping the collagen concentration >1.5 mg/ml for best results.

Mechanical agitation

Vortexing the collagen solution can have negative impacts on the collagen and will negatively affect the ability of the solution to form a hydrogel. Do not vortex.

Do not agitate the collagen solution during incubation and gelation. This will interfere with the fibrillogenesis process. 

Material was frozen or left at room temperature

If the collagen solution was frozen or left at room temperature for a long period of time, it may have begun to denature, which would affect its ability to gel.

Very small volumes of collagen were used in a non-confined space

We have found that using microliters of collagen on top of glass coverslips tend to not gel very well. 

We recommend ensuring the collagen is within a confined space (ie. wells or walls)

Neutralization Solution came out of solution

If using a collagen product that comes with a neutralization solution, ensure that the neutralization solution is still fully in solution. Getting it too cold can cause it to come out of solution. If this happens, simply warm it back up.

Weights vs Volume

Due to pipette hold-up volume, dispensing 1 mL of collagen (3 mg/ml) using a pipettor actually only dispenses about .89 grams. For the most accurate results, we recommend usings weights for viscous materials, such as collagen. The neutralization solutions, buffers and medias can use volume, as their viscosity is close to water. 

Expired material

Collagen tends to be stable when stored properly, but after a few years, the "gel strength" slowly declines. Expired collagen may still form hydrogels, but it will be significantly softer than a fresh batch of collagen.

Heat transfer

Warming collagen to 37C for polymerization in a test tube, in a water batch will be much more efficient than gelling collagen in an enclosed 6-well plate, with a lid, in a dry incubator. Look for ways to improve heat transfer if quicker polymerization is desired.


Ensure proper mixing to create a homogeneous solution (without vortexing) for best results.

Lyophilized Collagen

Atelocollagen that has been lyophilized (such as lyophilized PureCol, catalog #5006), tends to form weaker hydrogels, or not polymerize at all.

Insoluble Collagen

Advanced BioMatrix offers two insoluble collagen products, #5162 and #5164. These collagen powders are extremely robust and will not fully go into solution.
