Jellagen, is exploiting jellyfish to provide the market with a next generation collagen biomaterial that is perceived safer and more technically versatile than current sources of mammalian derived collagen. Collagen is used in the manufacture of biomaterials due to its ability to form strong fibres and used in many forms, including gels scaffolds, and membranes, for a number of medical applications ranging from wound care and soft tissue repair through to bone grafts as collagen is the chief structural protein of the body.

Jellagen’s current range of research grade collagen products are already on market for cell culture application and the business is also conducting in-house development of new medical devices for wound and cartilage repair. The company operates out of the Pembrokeshire Science & Technology Park, Pembroke Dock.
