Why to choose our nanofibrillar cellulose hydrogels as your bioinks for 3D bioprinting applications?
1. Taking your research results to the clinics
Nanofibrillar cellulose hydrogels are a great “blank canvas” to start your own bioink formulation development or to take our standard biomaterials for translating your research results to the clinics. Our nanocellulose based bioinks are based on animal-free materials and you can stay completely animal-free if your clinical development or applications require it.
2. Optimal printability and stability for your application
Our bioinks are shear thinning hydrogels that allow continuous flow and printability during bioprinting. Once the bioprinting is completed, the bioinks instantly become semi-solid hydrogels and structurally stable, so your cells will remain evenly distributed in the 3D bioprinted structure. You can see, how our materials work in bioprinting applications from this link.
3. Our biomaterials ensure the viability of your cells during and after bioprinting
Our high quality nanofibrillar cellulose bioinks ensure that your cells feel at home during and after bioprinting. Our wide customer base has 3D cell cultured various kinds of cells in our nanocellulose based hydrogels ranging from cell lines to primary cells and stem cells. The fiber dimensions of our nanocellulose biomaterials mimic the fibril network of collagen. We conduct extensive testing, including sterility, endotoxin and pH levels, cell viability and viscosity, to ensure consistent quality and cell culture performance from batch-to-batch.
4. Structural stability to form advanced tissue structures
During bioprinting, our nanocellulose based bioinks protect the cells from shear forces and provide the optimal environment for 3D cell growth immediately after printing. You can print our biomaterials into different shapes, structures, and layers without worrying about temperature control. You can tune the bioink’s viscosity simply by diluting the gels or by mixing them to other biomaterials to match the bioink stiffness for your cell type.
5. Mix and match to form your own bioink formulation
From our standard bioinks shipped in ready-to-use cartridges to your own formula development, we supply you with our high quality nanofibrillar cellulose. You can build your own bioink by mixing desired growth factors, proteins and other biomaterials to our nanocellulose hydrogels to optimize the 3D cell culture and 3D bioprinting conditions for your cells.
