This GelMA product is based on Cold Water Fish Skin Gelatin which has been functionalized with photocrosslinkable methacryloyl groups. Compared to mammalian gelatin-based matrices, solutions of Fish GelMA are less viscous and liquid at room temperature, making it extremely easy to use without heating or cooling. Fully compatible with automated liquid handling.

Due to its unmatched tuneability and bioactivity, GelMA is very popular as a biomaterial in tissue engineering, 3D bioprinting, and 3D cell culture applications. Can be used by itself, or blended with other materials to create your own individual printable extracellular matrix.
