CELLINK Bioink is the first universal bioink designed to print human tissue models with any commercially available or in-house developed 3D-bioprinting system. The nanosized fibrils make the bioink semi-translucent and is thus compatible with many advanced imaging techniques. Batch-to-batch consistent and temperature-independent shear thinning properties of the bioink ensure the best 3D bioprinting experience, and morphological similarity of cellulose nanofibrils to collagen provides mammalian cells with a milieu that resembles their fibrillar natural matrix. Altogether, this enables you to bioprint complex, cell-laden tissue constructs, such as cartilage, bone grafts, liver cancer models. After bioprinting, CELLINK Bioink crosslinks easily with the included ionic crosslinking agent.
- Bioink comes in 3 mL cartridges.
- Includes crosslinking agent.
- Sterile production and packaging.
- 6 months shelf life.
- For research use only. Not for human use
