New York, USA – October 29, 2021 – Amerigo Scientific, a distribution company focused on providing critical products and services to the biomedical and life science research communities, now announces PLGA that offers structural and mechanical support when combined with matrix bioinks such as gelatin methacrylate. This new product is an addition of its biomaterials & bioinks to support the 3D bioprinting industry.
PLGA, the Poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide), is a biocompatible thermoplastic that offers structural and mechanical support when combined with matrix bioinks such as gelatin methacrylate. Amerigo Scientific now offers such new ones and 3D bioprinters and associated biomaterials and bioinks from a leader in the bioprinting industry to enable researchers to reproduce the complex architecture of the native tissues with high precision in a rapid and continuous manner.
Bioink is a solution of a biological material in the form of a hydrogel or a mixture of several biological materials, usually encapsulating living cells and/or biologically active molecules. For bioprinting, bioink is an essential component and is cross-linked or stabilized immediately during or after bioprinting to create the final shape of the desired tissue structure. Choosing the right bioink depends on the specific application and cell type, as well as the bioprinter to be used. The ideal biological ink should have the required physical and chemical properties, such as cross-linking ability, mechanical, rheological, chemical and biological properties.
“3D bioprinting holds promising applications in scientific research areas,” said Nina Cooper, Ph.D., the chief scientist at Amerigo Scientific. “Amerigo Scientific can help clients to choose the right biological ink to process 3D related research. To capitalize on the promise of these biomaterials & bioinks, our lab also provides customers with the several other products such as Calcium Chloride, Gelatin, and Hydroxyapatite to be used in specific academic study. Equipped with perfect technical support and thoughtful customer service, we believe our customers can get what they need at Amerigo Scientific.”
In addition, Amerigo Scientific offers 3D bioprinters from manufacturers developing revolutionary technologies, which can not only build a bioprinting platform for researchers in the early stage, but also meet the higher needs of researchers in regenerative repair, drug screening, tumor model, personalized medicine, and other areas. 3D bioprinters products such as Bioink Mixer, Coaxial Nozzle, High Temp Print Head, and Metal Tips are all available at Amerigo Scientific for research uses.
