What are the effects of using collagenase and dispase to digest tissue into cells?

Dear KK89,


There are many enzymes that we use to digest tissue. Some are more effective than others and can be used in combination.


In answer to your specific question. There are 4 types of collagenase, please refer to the link below:-




There are 2 types of Dispase, again please refer to the link below:




Generally speaking researchers will follow a published protocol. However even in these circumstances you will have to optimise conditions i.e. concentration of enzyme, length of exposure, temperature, rate of shaking etc


Hope this is useful


Kindest regards
