GelMA C is a blend of GelMA and nanofibrillar cellulose that is a simple to use gelatin based bioink. This blend exhibits unparalleled printability at room temperature with minimal risk for nozzle clogging, even in bioprinting systems with no thermal control. Crosslink quickly through the activation of the photoinitiator or by adding our crosslinking solution. Compared to non-modified gelatin, blend retains its shape at physiological temperature and conditions. This shear thinning bioink exhibits excellent printability through a wide range of nozzle diameters with an unparalleled ability to be extruded at low pressures while forming filaments once deposited.
GelMA C is compatible with most mammalian cells. It can be utilized as a base material for a wide range of tissues. This bioink has been optimized for use with the BIO X system and temperature controlled printhead with thermal nozzle cover and the use of a cooled printbed. While the bioink can be used with the INKREDIBLE+ system due to its ability to heat the bioink, secondary steps are necessary to cool the printed structure to pre-gel it prior to crosslinking. Clogging may still occur due to lack of temperature control at the nozzle. Therefore, it is not recommended to use the bioink with the INKREDIBLE system since the bioink will not perform as expected and resulting filament characteristics may be inconsistent.
