3d Bioprinting

Biogelx is Your Partner in 3D Printing Tissues and Organs

Biogelx offers you a universal hydrogel bio-ink, which is available to be used across all 3D bioprinting platforms. With Biogelx cell ink you have the ability to accurately bio-fabricate biologically relevant 3D tissues and organs which are essential to achieve life-like function. Some of the key applications include use in high-throughput in vitro screening models for toxicology and drug discovery, organoids, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Customised Bio-inks to your 3D Bioprinting Application

We have the resources to work in partnership with you to develop new innovative bio-inks dependant on your requirements. Incorporation of specific components such as drugs, peptides, synthetic polymers, growth and adhesion factors is all possible. Cells can be encapsulated within the Biogelx bio-ink prior to printing the structure or they can be added to its surface post printing. Biogelx bio-ink has been seen to perform well in a range of extrusion-based printers currently on the market from companies such as CELLINK, ALLEVI, REGENHU, and OXSYBIO.


We offer ability to balance printability with cell viability

The advantages of utilizing synthetic hydrogels in bioprinting is that they can be tailored with specific physical properties and can be consistently manufactured according to your ambitions. Biogelx’s simple peptide-based hydrogels provide a biocompatible environment that can be carefully controlled in terms of mechanical properties, offering the ability to balance printability with cell viability. Biogelx bio-ink does not require the use of support, sacrificial or curing inks and can be used as a standalone material for complex life-like models.

Product features:
  • Printability– Biogelx bio-ink is applicable to all three currently available bioprinting platforms.
  • Biocompatibility – Our product is made up of bio-relevant amino-acids, are >95% water and have the same nanoscale matrix structure as human tissue.
  • Material Biomimicry – Biogelx bio-ink can be further optimized to include incorporation of specific components such as drugs, peptides, synthetic polymers, growth and adhesion factors is all possible.
  • Gelation time – Our product has been formulated so that as each layer of the structure is printed it will hold its own weight and still allow each subsequent layer to attach so as to form one solid structure.

Stable structure weeks after printing

Our bio-ink has been formulated so that as each layer of the structure is printed it will support its own weight and still allow each subsequent layer to attach so as to form one solid structure. It has been observed to remain a stable structure weeks after printing which will allow cells time to grow. Over prolonged periods of time in standard cell culture, cells will begin to build their own scaffold and surrounding extracellular matrix. However, the bio-ink acts as a support initially, so the printed cells can be built accurately into tissue-like constructs and shapes relevant to the type of tissue being designed.
Biogelx bio-ink’s mechanical properties are easily adjusted for each 3D printing method and in the case for extrusion printing has been observed to require lower pressure/mechanical force to extrude than alternative bio-inks and therefore cells are exposed to less shear stress, increasing cell viability. Customers who have previously used other forms of matrix inks to bioprint have been able to transfer over to using Biogelx bio-ink with relative ease.


High Potential in Regenerative Medicine

Our bio-ink offers a 3D platform that can manipulate stem cells into, potentially, any cell type, allowing the design of patient-specific therapies, whereby a patient’s own stem cells can be used to aid tissue self-repair and treat disease. Applications of significance are: Stroke recovery, Cartilage, and bone repair, Wound healing, and Spinal injury repair. In addition to such regenerative medicine techniques, 3D bioprinting of functional miniaturised tissue constructs can be utilised in high-throughput in vitro tissues models for research, drug discovery, and toxicology.
Clearly, the impact on in vitro cell-based toxicology testing and in vivo regenerative medicine techniques will enhance the health and quality of life of patients with a wide variety of medical conditions. In addition, the ethical and cost benefits associated with an increase in the use of bioprinted tissue mimics, and therefore a reduction of animal testing will have a major societal benefit.
