Most impactful sustainable product development
Winner: Scientific Laboratory Supplies

This award puts the spotlight on laboratories that have successfully developed a sustainable product.

Sustainability is higher on the agenda than ever before, and Scientific Laboratory Supplies won this award for Jellagen, a collagen-based, disease, vector and BSE free product which is ethically and sustainably sourced from Jellyfish.

“Ethically and sustainably sourced from Jellyfish. This collagen-based, disease, vector and BSE free product is an alternative to rat tail collagen.” – David Zaborowski, Marketing Manager at SLS

Jellagen is a marine biotechnology company manufacturing marine-sourced Collagen Type 0 for medical and scientific research applications. The organisation’s main objective is to create sustainable sources for critical biomaterials which do not carry the environmental and human health risks of traditional collagen sources.

Jellagen supplies a unique native Type 0 collagen derived from Jellyfish (Rhizostoma pulmo). Our collagen has been used to culture a wide range of different cell types including Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells, Breast cancer cell line MCF-7, Human Primary Keratinocytes (Skin), hCMEC/D3 plus many more. We have partnered with many world leading research institutes that use our next generation collagen successfully in their work.

“This product provides a big step forward in reducing the use of plastics in laboratories. I can see it being hugely popular with scientists and sustainable procurement teams.” – Jacqueline Balian, GAMBICA
