Our revolutionary polyethylene oxide blend has been developed into an excellent bioink. This composition, known as CELLINK® Start is easy to print and handle, allowing users to rapidly test and evaluate construct geometries. Additionally, this bioink is ideal as a support material in structures such large tubular structures or constructs with complex geometries such as overhands or other shapes. Simply dissolve away the CELLINK® Start in an aqueous environment to remove it from the construct. CELLINK® Start is a water soluble gel used as a sacrificial material when bioprinting cell-laden constructs with bioinks having poor shape fidelity or to prevent sagging of bioink filament and thus, bioprint constructs with porosity along all three axes. CELLINK® Start is printed at room temperature and easily dissolves away when washing with culture media (after gelation of cell-laden bioink) – making it an easy to use sacrificial material.You can also print all your complex structures with CELLINK® Start and ensure that they look the way they should prior to printing with human cells. It’s the perfect start for all your bioprinting experiments.
CELLINK START X
CELLINK® Start X is our second generation CELLINK® Start bioink which now has the ability to be crosslinked under UV light. CELLINK® Start X prints well through a wide range of nozzle shapes and diameters. This bioink can be utilized both for evaluation of construct geometry and for education and training purposes. CELLINK® Start X additionally can be utilized as long lasting bioink for structural support, as a soft surface for bioprinting, components in perfusible organ-on-a-chip, and for educational purposes as permanent models with tailorable mechanical characteristics.
CELLINK® Xplore was specifically designed for demonstration purposes. This ink can be used to print surgical models and larger organ structure with retained shape architecture. Similar to CELLINK® Bioink, Xplore boosts excellent printability and viscosity while retaining structural integrity after printing and crosslinking. CELLINK® Xplore is available in a variety of colors in order to better visualize printing complex structures with several printheads at a time.
