CELLINK PCL

Thermopolymers are simple to print using the CELLINK systems! We provide high-quality PCL that can be utilized to generate both traditional 3D printed scaffolds and constructs that are more suitable for load bearing applications such as in bone. CELLINK PCL is provided in several molecular weights which influence factors such as degradation and mechanical strength. Check out the printability parameters for these materials, set the right temperature, and you are well on your way to printing PCL lattices or other geometries right away! Supplied in granular form (3 mm pellets).

Printability data

  • 25 kDa
  • 50 kDa

Metal conical tip
This diagram displays the printability behaviour and characteristics of CELLINK PCL (25 kDa), when being printed with a 21G metal conical tip, at 60 mm/min. This one is different than the other charts because the PCL is not really viscoelastic, so it usually reaches a steady flow rate. Displayed is the minimal pressure it dispenses at.

Metal conical tip
This diagram displays the printability behaviour and characteristics of CELLINK PCL (50 kDa), when being printed with a 21G metal conical tip, at 133 mm/min. This one is different than the other charts because the PCL is not really viscoelastic, so it usually reaches a steady flow rate. Displayed is the minimal pressure it dispenses at.
