Researchers Study GelAGE As a Platform Bioink for Multiple 3D Biofabrication Technologies


Scientists from the University of Wuerzberg in Germany and the University of Otago Christchurch in New Zealand conducted an in-depth analysis of GelAGE synthesis. Standard UV-initiation was further compared with a recently described visible-light-initiator system for GelAGE hydrogel formation. The study, conducted by Sarah Bertlein, Gabriella Brown, Khoon S. Lim, …
