 Researchers of UBC create future of Bioprinting Organs by Cheaper Bioink

Researchers at University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan have introduced a newer Bioink which is much cheaper and is being considered the future of 3D Bioprinting for scaffolds. The gelatin methacrylate (GelMA) based bioink was created for two types of hydrogels: Cold-water fish skin and Cold-soluble gelatin, out of which Cold-Soluble was selected as the best candidate.
