The ColMA Kit consists of methacrylated type I collagen for use as a 3D tissue construct biomaterial or as a component in bioinks. The ColMA incorporates the excellent biocompatibility of type I collagen with the enhanced mechanical properties associated with methacrylate groups. This material both self-assembles under thermal heating and photocrosslinks to enhance mechanical characteristics. The ColMA Kit is sterile lyophilized powder that you dissolve at your target concentration to prepare as a 3D cell culture biomaterial.
The ColMA Kit consists of sterile ColMA powder along with an addition of photoinitiator necessary to blend your own bioink composition. Easy to use and to get started making and customizing your own ColMA biomaterial for 3D cell culture. The ColMA bioink has been optimized for use with the BIO X system and temperature controlled printhead with thermal nozzle cover and the use of a heated printbed. It is not recommended to use these bioinks with the INKREDIBLE or INKREDIBLE+ system due to its lack of cooling, the bioink will not perform as expected and resulting filament characteristics may be inconsistent.
