Reconstitution For best results, dissolve the lyophilizate in 0.2% acetic acid (v/v) solution.
For the preparation of Collagen gels, the content of the bottle should be dissolved in 3.3 mL sterile 0.2% acetic acid (v/v) each. This results in a final concentration of 3 mg/mL.
For coating culture dishes the final concentration should be 1 to 2 mg/ml.
Note: For dissolving: do not stir, just pour the acetic acid onto the lyophilizate and allow it to stand for several hours until it has dissolved. To completely dissolve the product an incubation for up to a maximum of 24 hours at 15 to 25 °C may be required.

Reconstitution of the Collagen should be done at 15 to 25 °C, higher temperatures destroy the fibres and may prevent the subsequent gelation of the Collagen.
