EASYGEL INX© is a gelatin-based, shear thinning, cell-interactive ink that mimicks extracellular matrix. It combines all the benefits of conventional gelatin/Gel-MA based inks in combination with a highly improved printing process thanks to its shear thinning behavior, thereby allowing an easy printing process at 37 °C.
Based on gelatin derived from natural collagen, X EASYGEL INX© has been modified with photo-crosslinkable functional groups meaning that it can be printed with unprecedented efficiency. It resembles the natural ECM and has exceptionally high cell viabilities.
EASYGEL INX© is provided as a clear hydrogel in a prefilled cartridge of 3 ml.
Printer requirements: Heatable printhead (37 °C) with nozzle insulator.
