What is a bioink?
A bioink is a hydrogel biomaterial that is suitable for bioprinting with mammalian cells and it provides a temporary support to the cells while they produce their own extracellular matrix . Bioinks based on biopolymers, such as collagen, gelatin, hyaluronan, silk, alginate, and nanocellulose, are known for their favorable biocompatible properties and are attractive biomaterials for cell encapsulation and 3D bioprinting. These bioinks provide an aqueous 3D environment with biologically relevant chemical and physical signals, mimicking the natural extracellular matrix environment. Significant advances in 3D bioprinting technology as well as development of new bioinks have made it possible to bioprint complex 3D tissue structures [2, 3].
provide mammalian cells with a milieu that resembles their natural matrix while their printability makes it possible to bioprint complex, cell-laden constructs.
