The cornerstone bioink
Gelatin methacrylate (GelMA) has become a cornerstone bioink in the bioprinting field thanks to its extraordinary versatility across applications. Labs all over the world can synthesize their own GelMA, which contributes to its popularity but also creates margins of inconsistency. To address this, hundreds of labs all around the world leverage CELLINK’s GelMA to ensure consistent and reproducible results every time.
What is GelMA?
GelMA is a photocrosslinkable version of gelatin with amine groups that are partially replaced with methacrylate groups. Photocrosslinking facilitates stability of printed constructs in cell culture conditions. The widespread use of GelMA hydrogels in the biomedical field is due to their unique biological properties that enable excellent attachment and proliferation of various cell types.
