Better, cheaper bio-ink may be used to create artificial organs

(University of British Columbia Okanagan campus) A new bio-ink that may support a more efficient and inexpensive fabrication of human tissues and organs has been created by researchers at UBC’s Okanagan campus. The UBC team analyzed the physical and biological properties of three different GelMA hydrogels — porcine skin, cold-water fish skin and cold-soluble gelatin.
