CELLINK SUPPORT

CELLINK® SUPPORT is our new thickener blend made of nanofibrillar cellulose that is ready to be used as support, a sacrificial structure or as a thickening agent for your own custom bioinks.

Printability Data

Conical tip (Room temperature)

This diagram displays the printability behavior and characteristics of CELLINK SUPPORT, when being printed with a 22 G and 25 G conical tip at room temperature (approx. 23.4° C). The different lines correspond to different printing pressures, as indicated by the colors in the legend.

Lines, 90 kPa

There are a lot of factors involved in assessing printability. Here we can see how CELLINK SUPPORT performs when printing straight lines, using a printing pressure of 90 kPa with 25 G nozzle.

Conical tip (Room temperature)

This diagram displays the printability behavior and characteristics of CELLINK PLURONICS when being printed with 22 G, 25 G and 27 G conical tip at room temperature (approximately 23.4° C). The different lines correspond to different printing pressures, as indicated by the colors in the legend.

Conical tip (Room temperature)

This diagram displays the printability behavior and characteristics of CELLINK START printed with 22 G, 25 G and 27 G conical tips at room temperature (approximately 23.4° C). The different lines correspond to different printing pressures indicated by the colors in the legend.

Lines, 35 kPa

There are a lot of factors involved in assessing printability. Here we can see how CELLINK START performs when printing straight lines using a printing pressure of 35 kPa with 25 G nozzle.

Conical tip (Room temperature)

This diagram displays the printability behavior and characteristics of CELLINK START X, when being printed with a 22 G, 25 G and 27 G conical tip at room temperature (approx. 23.4° C). The different lines correspond to different printing pressures indicated by the colors in the legend.

Customizations

CELLINK® PLURONICS

If you need to generate conduits and channels within your constructs look no further than CELLINK® PLURONICS. CELLINK® PLURONICS has excellent printability at room temperature and above, guaranteed to form continuous and small diameter filaments under the recommended printing conditions. Its excellent shape fidelity at warm temperatures make CELLINK® PLURONICS perfect for the fabrication of model vascularized tissues and microfluidic devices as it can be combined bioinks that may require slight warming such as GelMA or encapsulated post printing with cell containing biomaterials such as alginate, gelatin, GelMA, collagen, and fibrin where warming is necessary to accelerate gel formation. Simplify briefly cool down the construct and perfuse with cooled media and you are ready to culture your channel containing materials!

CELLINK® XPLORE

CELLINK® XPLORE is designed for demonstration purposes. This ink can be used to print surgical models and larger organ structures. Similar to CELLINK® Bioink, CELLINK® 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 help visualize the process of printing complex structures with several printheads at a time.

CELLINK® START

Our revolutionary polyethylene oxide blend is an excellent bioink. CELLINK® START is easy to print and handle, allowing you to rapidly test and evaluate construct geometries. Additionally, this bioink is ideal as a support material for constructs with large tubular structures and complex geometries, including overhands and 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 for cell-laden constructs, bioinks with poor shape fidelity and constructs with porosity along all three axes. CELLINK® START prints at room temperature and dissolves easily after washing with culture media (after gelation of the cell-laden bioink) – making it an easy to use sacrificial material.

You can print all of your complex structures with CELLINK® START and ensure that their quality prior to printing with human cells. It’s the perfect start for all your bioprinting experiments.

CELLINK® START X

CELLINK® START X is the second generation of our CELLINK® START bioink with the capability to crosslink with UV light. CELLINK® START X maintains printability through a range of nozzle shapes and diameters. Use it to evaluate construct geometry and for education and training demonstrations. You can also use CELLINK® START X for structural support, as a soft surface for bioprinting, within a perfusable organ on-a-chip and for as a permanent models with customizable mechanical characteristics. CELLINK® START X works with a wide range of bioinks.
