Bioinks with dual action and versatilityCELLINK’s GelX Series leverages methacrylated gelatin to combine the biological characteristics of a crosslinkable gelatin network with printability at a wide range of temperatures. The bioinks’ ease-of-use and versatility in crosslinking facilitate bioprinting of soft and hard tissue models. The series includes bioinks modified with tricalcium phosphate, laminins and fibrinogen to create favorable environments for all cell types including cell lines, stem cells and primary cells.
GelX-based bioinks have GelMA’s biological properties with printability at a wide range of temperatures. Users can use two culture conditions to engineer tissues with GelX-based bioinks: the normal culture conditions of submerging the construct in medium and the phasic culture conditions of an air-liquid interface, which can both influence epidermal and epithelial tissue models.
