The main challenge of 3D bioprinting technology is the lack of printable materials with desirable biological properties.

We’re here to overcome that challenge!
At Biogelx, we offer 3D printable materials (bioinks) with tunable mechanical properties and functionalized biochemical ligands to provide you with the best printable cell environment.
Our bioinks are reproducible and biologically active.
Biocompatibility is an essential requirement of any bioprinted scaffold. We incorporate biomimetic peptide sequences from key extracellular matrix proteins such as fibronectin and collagen to optimize the biocompatibility of our nanofibrous peptide bioink. Biogelx™-INKs contain surface ligands such as RGD and GFOGER as biological cues to mediate tissue formation and aid in guiding cell adhesion and proliferation. In essence, we provide peptide-based products that are chemically defined and thus, reproducible. Furthermore, they interact with cells in a similar way to natural materials.
Biogelx partners and collaborators have already used Biogelx™-INKs with fibroblasts, human liver cancer (HepG2), pulmonary adenocarcinoma (A549), human colon cancer (HCT116, HCT119), human MSCs, and breast cancer (MCF-7) cell lines, among others.
Our bioinks offer excellent shape fidelity with easy viscosity control.
Biogelx™ peptide hydrogel bioinks are versatile and have unique mechanical tunability, which can be adjusted by simply modifying the ratio of Biogelx-INK powder and Biogelx™-PREP solution; no chemical modifications required. The gelation of Biogelx-INKs is triggered by the addition of cell culture media, meaning the required nutrients for cells are present form the start of the printing process.
