GelX Series

GelXG is a gelatin-based bioink blended with xanthan gum that can be printed at room temperature. This exciting addition provides an environment that mimics native mammalian cells and provides superior printability and stability.

GelXA is based on GelMA and features improved printability, ease of use and stability. It is a blend that can be printed at room temperature and is enhanced with alginate and xanthan gum. This base material enables you to use photoinitiator-assisted or ionic crosslinking, or a combination of both.

Printability Data

Conical tip (Room temperature)

This diagram displays the printability behavior and characteristics of GelXA, when being printed with a 22 G conical tip at room temperature (approximately 23.4° C) at 30-40 kPa.

Lines

There are a lot of factors involved in assessing printability. Here we can see how GelXA performs when printing straight lines at a printing pressure of 22 kPa.

Customizations

GelXA BONE

Developed for studying targeted cell differentiation. This bioink is well-suited for use as a base material in bone constructs or thermopolymer supplement constructs.

GelXA FIBRIN

For studying wound-healing environments, after crosslinking, contains in situ fibrin and fibrinogen for the formation of complex, stable networks.

GelXA SKIN

Provides the printability and versatility of GelXA which after crosslinking, contains in situ fibrin and fibrinogen to better represent the native environment of skin cells.

GelXA LAMININKS

Laminin’s essential role in cell differentiation, migration and adhesion can now be found in a stable, easy-to-use bioink.
GelXA LAMININK 111 has been developed as a bioink for application with cells that require the presence of the laminin 111 isoform. Laminin 111 is important during early development of the lining of tissues and organs. Specialized applications that this bioink is suited for include the culture of brain, kidney, liver or intestinal cells. In disease modeling, this bioink is relevant for studying Parkinson’s disease and cancer models.

GelXA LAMININK 121 has been developed as a bioink for application with several cell types, including skeletal muscle, brain, kidney and liver cells. Laminin 121 is widely expressed during embryonic and early development of the lining of tissues and organs. This laminin variation is also predominantly found in the placenta, skeletal muscle, and kidney tissue.

GelXA LAMININK 411 is suitable as a bioink for the culture of several specific cell types, including pancreatic cells and neurons. Laminin 411 supports many different tissue types including cells from the pancreas, vascular, immune, nervous, hematopoietic systems.

GelXA LAMININK 521 has been developed as a bioink that supports cells that requiring laminin 521 and therefore LAMININK 521 induces self-renewal of these cells. In addition, laminink 521 supports many diverse tissue cell types, such as cells from pancreas, vascular, nervous and muscular systems. Furthermore, the bioink can be used as a base for many specialized cells including hepatocytes, cardiomyocytes, and neurons.

GelXA LAMININK+ is a blend of several types of laminins. GelXA LAMININK+ can be used as a great starting point for the culture of many cell types. Our revolutionary blend of laminins within this bioink has been optimized to maximize cell viability.

All these incredible new bioinks can be printed at room temperature and offer dual crosslinking capabilities via UV exposure or treatment with ionic crosslinking solution.
