This photoinitiator has an absorption at 405 nm which allows photocrosslinking under more cell friendly conditions compared to other photoinitiators such as Irgacure. Additionally, LAP has a faster polymerization kinetics compared to Irgacure 2959 to enable encapsulation of cells at a more rapid rate. This photoinitiator is commonly utilized in bioprinting due to these properties.
