Applications of Lifeink® 300 - Methacrylated Gelatin

Gelatin methacrylate (also known as PhotoGel® or Lifeink® 300) can be used to form cross-linked hydrogels for tissue engineering[1] and 3D printing. The common forms of 3D printing using Lifeink® 300 include extrusion[2][3][4], inkjet[5] and photolithography[6]).



Lifeink® 300 has been used for endothelial cell morphogenesis,[7] cardiomyocytes,[8] epidermal tissue[9], injectable tissue constructs[10], bone differentiation[11], and cartilage regeneration[12].


Gelatin methacrylate has been explored in drug delivery applications in the form of microspheres[13] and hydrogels[14].
