You may make these yourself:

Dissolve collagen to 5 microgram in 0.2 % acetic acid.

Add 2 ml per 6 cm dish, let stand 1 min, pour off, and let dry.

The dish has been coated. 

The details are in Gjessing and Seglen Exp Cell Res 129:239-49, 1980.

Your have to select the right type of collagen for your cell type.
