Fibrillary collagen bioinks for tissue model printing
As the only fibrillary collagen bioinks in the market, our Fibercoll-Flex® products consist of pure type I collagen fibers with high mechanical strength that enable easy printing without a methacrylation curing step. The stable 3D models are highly biocompatible and represent in vivo like scaffolds for cell adherence & remodeling, widely applicable in tissue engineering or regenerative medicine research and development.
A publication by Garcia-Villen et al. (2023) demonstrates and summarizes the advantages of the new bioinks for 3D printing & bioprinting.
Easy 3D model printing with encapsuled cells at physiological conditions
Made of acidic collagen fibers, the Fibercoll-Flex-N® is neutralized before printing, enabling the generation of bioprints with encapsuled cells at physiological conditions. The self-supporting 3D models with high shape fidelity and proven biocompatibility can be immediately handled and cultured after printing. The native fibrillary collagen type I represents an excellent in vivo like scaffold that promotes cell performance. Tunable stiffness between 0.2 – 0.9 kPa.
Robust 3D scaffolds with optimal mechanical properties
The acidic Fibercoll-Flex-A® bioink enables the printing of solid forms with exceptional shape fidelity at a higher stiffness range than the Fibercoll-Flex-N®. 3D models are neutralized after printing and cells seeded on top of the scaffold. The native fibrillary collagen type I represents an excellent in vivo like scaffold that promotes cell performance. Tunable stiffness between 2 – 10 kPa.
