RegenHU launches bio-synthetic extra cellular matrix bioink for 3D bioprinting

The market for advanced biomaterials developed specifically for 3D bioprinting is growing as regenHU, an innovative bio-printing solution provider, has combined its expertise with PeptiGelDesign Technologies to provide a range of synthetic ready-to-use bioink products specifically designed for bioprinting in 3D cell biology and tissue engineering applications.

Even more so than in traditional 3D printing, material are key to the advancement of bioprinting capabilities. Bioinks are fluid-like materials which encapsulate bio-actives (living cells, proteins) which can be 3D printed into bio-architectures (e.g.  custom-designed implants or tissue constructs) for drug testing. While numerous bio-inks are already obtainable, no viable solution for in-vivo relevant models were currently available.

Consequently we are very proud to announce that we can now offer an innovative series of ready-to-print synthetic hydrogels. Based on the understanding of the self-assembling behaviour of small peptides in water, the EMC-Bioink hydrogels are non-Newtonian materials which display shear thinning properties while providing a 3-dimensional peptide nanofiber scaffold that promotes both cell growth and migration.

Allowing a tight control of the mechanical strength, as well as cell-scaffold interaction, the EMC-Bioink™ family will enable researchers to produce structures that closely resemble the complex architecture and function of real tissue. Used as either a stand-alone matrix or embedded in a component system, these synthetic extracellular matrices can be used in a wide range of situations: to study tissue or disease, drug discovery, efficacy and toxicity or in the creation of regenerative implants.

Both revolutionary and cutting edge EMC-Bioink are available in five variations on RegenHU’s online shop. You can also download the material’s datasheet here: ECM-BioInk_Product_Datasheet

regenHU is an innovative biomedical company based in Switzerland. regenHU acts as a bio-systems architect, developing new bio-manufacturing solutions in response to the emerging challenges facing the biomedical industry and regenHU’s confirmed cutting-edge solutions are currently being implemented globally. regenHU benefits from exclusive patented technologies resulting from many years of research and development in collaboration with international universities and industrial partners.

PeptiGelDesign Technologies’ (PGDt)  vision is to be at the core of regenerative medicine solutions. Experts in synthetic biomaterials, the PGDt  team has engineered scalable life-changing solutions in answer to presently unmet needs in the fields of Life Science and Biomedical applications. The company, based in Cheshire, UK, have developed a family of customisable self-assembling peptide-based synthetic extra cellular matrices systems that perfectly mimic the cell microenvironment. Being both reproducible and animal free products, these systems are entirely compatible with liquid handling processes and biological system interrogation techniques. PT provides user and cell friendly synthetic ECMs for 3D cell culturing as well as for Bio-printing.

Since 2002, I have built up extensive experience as a technology journalist, market analyst and consultant for the additive manufacturing industry. Born in Milan, Italy, I spent 12 years in the United States, where I received my Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree. As a journalist covering the tech industry - especially the videogame industry - for over 10 years, I began covering the AM industry specifically in 2013, as blogger. In 2016 I co-founded London-based 3D Printing Business Media Ltd. (now 3dpbm) which operates in marketing, editorial, and market analysis & consultancy services for the additive manufacturing industry. 3dpbm publishes 3D Printing Business Directory, the largest global directory of companies related to 3DP, and leading news and insights websites 3D Printing Media Network and Replicatore. I am also a Senior Analyst for leading US-based firm SmarTech Analysis focusing on the additive manufacturing industry and relative vertical markets.
