Description

This bioink is made of highly concentrated buffered GelMA (20% w/w) at physiological pH and osmolarity. Dilute our GelMA solution to reach the desired concentration, add a photoinitiator or any special additive and, as a result, tailor your own GelMA-based bioink for 3D cell culture or casting applications. Warm it up, mix it well and make an impact. Preparing GelMA has never been quicker!


Application

GelMA 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.
