CELLINK Bioink is the first universal bioink designed to print human tissue models with any 3D-bioprinting system, commercially available or developed in-house. CELLINK Bioink is a non-animal derived polysaccharide hydrogel that is ideal for 3D bioprinting and cell culturing. CELLINK Bioink is composed of alginate and highly hydrated cellulose nanofibrils, jointly patented by UPM-Kymmene Corporation and CELLINK AB, with morphological similarity to collagen, providing mammalian cells with a milieu that resembles their natural matrix. Its excellent printability enables you to bioprint complex, cell-laden tissue constructs, such as a human auricle. The unique biocompatibility and printability of CELLINK Bioink offer outstanding results that will take your research to the next level! Use our CELLMIXER to mix CELLINK Bioink with a high concentration of cells and a one-step bioprinting process. After bioprinting, CELLINK Bioink crosslinks easily with the included ionic crosslinking agent.
