3D printing bioinks are generally transformed into three-dimensional structures by cross-linking, so the cross-linking properties of the ink are what will directly affect the process of building three-dimensional structures. There are many issues to consider when designing and customizing bioinks, including print mechanical properties, physicochemical properties, and the ability to load cells. Physical crosslinking is one of the primary crosslinking methods for bioinks. As shown in the figure above, this process mainly includes some non-covalent bonding interactions such as hydrogen bonding, hydrophobic interactions, electrostatic interactions and ionic crosslinking. Currently, bioinks based on physical crosslinking have higher cell viability compared to other types of bioinks. However, one of the main problems prevailing is the weak mechanical strength and poor formability. This is usually done by introducing other materials to modulate and improve the print performance as well as the stability of the print structure.
CD BioSciences has been committed to providing our customers with customization services for physical cross-linking based bioinks. We have the professional team with extensive experience in the design and customization of bioinks for bio-3D printing. The physical cross-linking bioinks customization services mainly include three aspects below.
CD BioSciences can provide you with a custom ion-crosslinked bioink service focused around balancing printability and cell viability. In addition to adjusting the mechanical properties by adjusting the crosslinker and ionic ratio, printing performance can be improved by adding other non-ionic polymers such as nanoparticles and photocrosslinkers.Learn More
CD BioSciences' dedicated team can provide you with high quality design and customization services for hydrogen bonding based cross-linked bioinks. Hydrogen bonds are mainly found between hydrogen-containing atoms and more polar atoms, and because of the weak relative forces, they need to be combined with other bioink materials. We can first select the material according to your printing needs, and then adjust the most suitable bioink formulation according to the mechanical properties and cell viability of the printed structure.Learn More
CD BioSciences is able to provide you with a professional customization service for bioinks cross-linked by host-object interaction. Bioinks based on host-guest interaction cross-linking are also generally required to be used in combination with other biomaterials. The host-guest interaction acts as a dynamic regulator in the composite ink, making the printability of the ink controllable and adjustable. Regarding the design of such bioinks, we are currently also mainly looking for composites that can meet the printing needs of our customers.Learn More
