Product Info

Due to its unmatched tuneability and bioactivity, GelMA is very popular as a biomaterial in in tissue engineering, 3D bioprinting, and 3D cell culture applications. Can be used by itself, or blended with other materials to create your own individual printable extracellular matrix.

GelMA is supplied as a sterile freeze-dried product. Reconstitute GelMA in PBS or HEPES buffer at the concentration to suit your application and mix it with a photoinitiator to make your hydrogels photocrosslinkable and stable at body temperature.
