Formulating your own bioink does not have to be difficult.
With an extensive portfolio of all the must-haves for developing reliably reproducible custom bioink formulations in no time. Our base materials, thickeners and crosslinkers are standardized and quality controlled to ensure they will yield consistent and reproducible results. Developing and customizing bioink formulations that can be reliably reproduced starts with these high-quality components.
Fine-tune formulations by reconstituting components.
Want complete control over your bioink development? Does your bioink manufacturing require a specific concentration? Many of our biomaterials and bioink components are available as sterile lyophilizates and powders that can be reconstituted to any concentration in order to fine-tune properties. These biomaterials are also packaged in kits that include reconstitution agents, crosslinkers and consumables to get you started even faster.
Explore our range of Concentrated Components
Freeze-dried product of porcine gelatin functionalized with methacrylate groups. It is one of the most popular biomaterials in tissue engineering, used in a variety of applications.
Sterile powder version of methacrylated hyaluronic acid. Add sterile buffer to reconstitute at your desired concentration and you can start incorporating your bioinks and other 3D cell culture constructs.
One of the main structural proteins found in extracellular matrix (ECM) and connective tissue. Found in over 30% of total body protein, making it an excellent biomaterial for tissue engineering and 3D printing applications
Many of our biomaterials and bioink components are available in sterile, high concentrations that can be quickly mixed and diluted to develop custom bioinks. Additionally, be sure you check out our library of thickeners to impart shear-thinning characteristics and enhance printability.

GelMA 20 %
A concentrated solution at physiological pH and osmolarity, to be used as a base in bioink formulation
A ready-to-print sacrificial and support ink that exhibits excellent printability. Optimized for the fabrication of vascularized tissues, channels in microfluidic devices, and supporting scaffolds for complicated tissue constructs.
Viscous alginate hydrogel, suitable for both bioprinting and casting. Use it on its own, mix it with another hydrogel to make the blend ionically crosslinkable or dilute it using our Reconstitution Agent M to achieve your target concentration.
Thickening agents serve a critical role in the development of a bioink by imparting shear-thinning characteristics that facilitate stabilization and printability. Many of our thickening agents are available for bioink development, each tailored for a specific application and end use.
Explore our range of Thickeners
Wood-derived material consisting of fibrils with high aspect ratio: (5–20 nm wide and several microns long).
Using a solution with the optimal pH and isotonicity when reconstituting biomaterials is vital for successful cell culturing. Our reconstitution agents and buffers are optimized to make the reconstitution, dilution and neutralizing of biomaterials easy and fast.
Explore our range of Neutralizers and Buffers
Developed to ease the neutralization process of CELLINK’s Coll 1 Lyophilizate, Coll 1 Solution, ColMA Lyophilizate, and ColMA Solution.
Crosslinking of your bioinks is vital for keeping them intact and stable during cell culture and analysis. The crosslinking agent is the ideal companion for any alginate-based bioink since it enables ionic crosslinking with calcium ions. Photoinitiators are used in combination with methacrylated biomaterials to enable photocuring by forming covalent bonds and are ideal for use with ColMA, GelMA and HAMA.
