Organoid Dome Method Using Xeno-Free VitroGel® System

by | Nov 1, 2022 | Organoids, Stem Cell

VitroGel® hydrogels

VitroGel® hydrogels from TheWell Bioscience closely mimic the natural extraceullar matrix (ECM) environment and give an outstanding balance of biological functions and operating ease to establish a robust 3D cell culture platform. Our cutting-edge hydrogels enable high-throughput processing and scale-up of the 3D cell platform for multiple applications, from organoids to stem cells to invasion assay, angiogenesis assay, and more.

VitroGel Hydrogel Matrix

ready-to use, xeno-free (animal origin-free) functional hydrogel system


ready-to use, xeno-free (animal origin-free) hydrogel system for organoid culture

VitroGel 3D High Concentration

tunable, xeno-free hydrogel, high concentration (3mL kit)

Full control of growth factors with VitroGel system

With the xeno-free and growth factor-free VitroGel ORGANOID system, researchers can now have full control of the growth factors for enriching the hydrogel system for organoid formation. 

Dome Culture Method – Now Available

Many researchers wonder if they can use the traditional organoid dome culture method when using our xeon-free VitroGel system. We found a simple transition method to adapt the dome culture method with the VitroGel system by simply using the non-tissue culture treated plate.

5 Different Culture Protocols Available


We are excited to share the latest culture protocols with you, covering the below 5 different culture methods:

  • 3D Dome Method with VitroGel system
  • 2D Dome Method with VitroGel system
  • 2D Hydrogel Coating with VitroGel system
