Alginate is a commonly used natural biomaterial in tissue engineering and is used extensively as a hydrogel for cell encapsulation and bioactive-delivery systems. The BIO X 3D bioprinter enables rapid and automated alginate bead encapsulations using either the Syringe Pump Printhead or the Electromagnetic Droplet Printhead for customized milli- to micro-meter diameter spherical encapsulations.
