CELLINK® Bioink is the first universal bioink optimized for 3D bioprinting of human tissue models with any commercially available and in-house developed 3D bioprinting system. As a polysaccharide hydrogel (non-animal derived), CELLINK® Bioink is an ideal material for 3D bioprinting and cell culturing. The biologically relevant 3D environment of CELLINK® Bioink, composed of alginate and highly hydrated cellulose nanofibrils with morphological similarity to collagen, provides mammalian cells with a milieu that resembles their natural matrix. The excellent printability of this bioink makes it possible to bioprint complex, cell-laden tissue constructs such as a human auricle. The unique biocompatibility and printability of CELLINK® Bioink offer outstanding results that will take your research to the next level! CELLINK® Bioink can be mixed with a high concentration of cells with our CELLMIXER for a one-step bioprinting process. CELLINK® Bioink is simply cross-linked with ionic crosslinking solution (included) after the bioprinting process.
