CELLINK Xanthan Gum

Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide that is widely used as an effective and approved thickening agent and stabilizer for various food products. The ability of xanthan gum to significantly change the viscosity of liquid systems at low concentration is applied in our GelX series of bioinks.
