CELLINK offers PhotoHA®-INK, a methacrylated hyaluronic acid (HAMA) ink with LAP for bioprinting with the BIONOVA X.
Hyaluronic acid is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan in the body being an important component of several tissues throughout the body. While it is abundant in extracellular matrices, hyaluronic acid also contributes to tissue hydrodynamics, movement and proliferation of cells, and participates in a number of cell surface receptor interactions.
For the majority of cell types, it is recommended to add additional ECM proteins to the hyaluronic acid hydrogels. The proteins provide important cell binding sites.
