CELLINK offers PhotoGel®-INK, a sterile, pre-formulated 10% methacrylated gelatin ink with 0.25% LAP for rapid 3D bioprinting with the BIONOVA X.
The PhotoGel®-INK consists of purified methacrylated porcine gelatin (25 mL) and LAP photoinitiator. The gelatin is type A 300 bloom.
PhotoGel®-INK is produced from methacrylated gelatin where the gelatin has been modified by reacting the free amines, primarily the ε-amines groups of the lysine residues as well as the a-amines groups on the N-termini. ~50% of the total lysine residues of the gelatin molecule have been methacrylated.
