An innovative new bio-ink could help pave the way to artificial organs.
The ink, developed by a team at the University of British Columbia, is made up of a hydrogel embedded with living cells. The gel can be molded or extruded through a 3D printer head, allowing the material to take on different forms for different purposes.
According to the team, one of the standout benefits of the bio-ink is its thermal stability, which was accomplished by a cold-soluble gelatin created by the group.
