UPM has been developing new applications for wood-based nanocellulose on a broad scale. The GrowDex® nanocellulose hydrogel, which has already been brought to the market, mimics the living environments and actions of cells more closely than the current alternatives. It also brings an ethical and overall cost economical solution for the requirements of cell research and the drug development.
