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.

This product contains Nanofibrillated Cellulose, jointly patented by UPM-Kymmene Corporation and CELLINK AB.

Recommended for use with BIO X, a temperature-controlled printhead and cooled print bed.




The kit makes 3 mL of Hep X Bioink.

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.
