GelMA and Alginate blends are among the most common types of bioinks for research. Based on our GelMA A bioink, the GelMA-Alginate Kit enables you to make your own blends. Both components are sterile and ready to be dissolved at your target concentration. Easily prepare your bioink, or mix it with other biomaterials to create your own bioink!
Recommended for use with BIO X, a temperature-controlled printhead and a heated print bed. Not recommended for use with INKREDIBLE+ or INKREDIBLE.
The kit includes: 2 x 500 mg of freeze dried GelMA powder and 2 x 100 mg of freeze dried Alginate powder.
Sterile produced and packaged.
Photoinitiator, 100 mg, in separate vial, not sterile.
Twelve month shelf life GelMA powder
Six month shelf life Alginate powder
