Tissue printing

Many materials are used for biofabrication of living tissues.These materials can be split into three main categories: Matrix, sacrificial and support. Matrix reagents, the cell-encapsulating materials in bioprinting, are solidified with curing reagents.Sacrificial materials are used for vasculature development, while support reagents enhance the mechanical properties of a construct.

Matrix Print Enhancers

Percoll

Percoll is a well-referenced media for density gradient centrifugation of cells, viruses and subcellular particles. Percoll is composed of colloidal silica coated with polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). Percoll has also been previously used to improve cell distribution when bioprinting with low viscosity matrix bioinks such as PEGDA or fibrinogen.

Alginate

Sodium alginate can be use to create cell-laden printed structures through a chemical gelation with calcium chloride. We suggest using Pluronic F127 with this reagent as a temporary support.
