Collagen is found in over 30% of total body protein, making it an excellent biomaterial for tissue engineering and 3D printing applications. Collagen forms fibrous networks in the body, enhancing the structural integrity of the ECM while promoting cell adhesion, growth, biological signalling, and tissue morphogenesis.
Dissolve our Coll 1 sourced from high-quality rat tail tendon in the Reconstitution Agent A , neutralize, mix with cells, and build 3D cell culture constructs for tissue engineering or high-throughput screening. Once neutralized, Coll 1 solutions thermally crosslinks by self-assembly to form stable constructs. Use in combination with FRESH LifeSupport powder for support bath printing.
