Biocolor Ltd announces the release of the Sircol 2.0 Collagen Assay Kit, designed for streamlined measurement of soluble collagens extracted from in-vitro or in-vivo samples.

This latest addition to the highly cited family of 'Sircol' collagen kits combines an updated microplate format with an improved dye formulation to significantly enhance collagen sensitivity and specificity. This makes it possible to directly analyse collagen from complex samples such as conditioned media during 2D or 3D cell culture.

"Over two decades ago, Biocolor introduced one of the first user-friendly collagen analysis kits. We are delighted to present this much improved version, designed with today's researchers and applications in mind".

Managing Director, Biocolor Ltd
