HEP X Kit
Improved in vitro liver tissue models can potentially speed up the study of disease biology and accelerate drug screening. To this end, we have developed the HEP X Kit, which includes decellularized liver extracellular matrix (ECM), a component that serves as a bioactive scaffold, or superior microenvironment, for hepatocytes to facilitate cell-to-cell and cell-to-ECM interactions. The kit includes all components needed for easy preparation of the HEP X bioink, once mixed the bioink must be used within two hours. Follow the Neutralization and Bioprinting Protocol HEP X Kit for preparation and printing of HEP X Bioink.
Recommended for use with BIO X, a temperature-controlled printhead and cooled print bed.
The kit includes:
- Liver ECM Solution (ECM)
- ECM Neutralization Solution (N)
- ECM Buffer Solution (B)
- Nanocellulose-Alginate Hydrogel (H)
- CaCl2 Crosslinking Agent
- Cartridge 3cc, with tip and end cap
- Female-Female Luer lock adaptor
Sterile production and packaging.
Minimum 4 months shelf life before mixing.
For research use only. Not for human use.
