Albert Ginjaume and Jessica Sykes at Manchester have been experimenting with our PeptiInks® to successfully print MBG’s bee with outstanding structural definition.
The beauty of our PeptiInks® is that they differ in their chemical (peptide sequence) and physical (charge/mechanical strength/functionality) properties to ensure high cell viability across all cell types whilst printing. Their reversible shear thinning properties allow them to be printable, and this is due to the self-assembling behaviour of the peptides, allowing the 3D structure to be instantly reformed when printed.
Our oligopeptides self-assemble in solution via non-covalent bonds such as hydrogen bonds and ionic bonds, to form ordered nanostructure assemblies. This process can be fine-tuned and controlled by changing the peptide environment, to give the desired printing properties for your needs. If you’re interested in finding out more about our PeptiInks® or any of our products please contact us here.
We remain open & are offering our services in support of COVID-19 research We are still open for business and accepting all inquiries and orders, and shipping out our products from stock the same day or next day.
