Bioprinting 101: Part 6 – Pluronics

Pluronic F127 Gel We are going to discuss pluronics today. We have covered a couple different materials within our bioprinting series. We will today discuss in this article the different material properties of a pluronic, what the typical usage for a pluronic is outside of bioprinting, and why we use pluronics within the bioprinting industry. […]

Bioprinting 101: Part 5 – Bioink

For those of you who do not know what bioinks are, read this short excerpt to understand what they are and how integral they are to the bioprinting industry.

Extrusion of Bioink Bioink refers to substances made of living cells that can be used for 3D printing of complex tissue models. Bioinks are materials that mimic an extracellular matrix environment to support the adhesion, proliferation, and differentiation of living...

Bioprinting 101: Part 4 – Alginate

This is a short informational post on alginate as a biomaterial used for bioprinting.

  Alginate is derived from brown algae Alginate is a polysaccharide distributed widely in cell walls of brown algae. When it bonds with water it typically forms a viscous gum. Alginate absorbs water quickly, which makes it useful as an additive. Alginate can be...

Bioprinting 101: Part 3 Industrial Printers

Today we will look into bioprinters that are well known. One must understand biochemistry, and other important aspects within biology to fully do well with bioprinting. The development of bioprinting technology will take patience and time. The climb will be steep but in the future, and it may very well have huge impacts on the […]

Bioprinting 101: Part 2 Hydrogels

Simple Hydrogel A hydrogel is a macromolecular polymer gel constructed of a network of crosslinked polymer chains. Hydrogels are synthesized from hydrophilic monomers by either chain or step growth, along with a functional crosslinker to promote network formation. A net-like structure along with void imperfections enhance the hydrogel’s ability to absorb large amounts of water […]

Bio-printing 101: How to Bioprint at Home

Bioprinted Hydrogels Bioprinting is an exciting area to follow as it invigorates the ideas of Frankenstein and a bunch of other sci-fi scenarios that make us slightly paranoid. So how does someone create their own monster within their garage? Well, that is pretty far fetched at the moment, but there are ways to get involved […]
