CHANGING
THE GAME OF
3D BIOPRINTING.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Glue4Life is a next-generation bioink for 3D bioprinting living tissues and organs.
TOWARDS CLINICAL USE

Glue4Life is biodegradable and manufactured using clinically compatible components, therefore holding great potential for future clinical applications of 3D bioprinted tissues.

SIMPLE PROCESS

The printing process of Glue4Life is simple - no additional crosslinking step is required.

BIOCOMPATIBILITY

Cell friendly crosslinking method - no cytotoxic components limiting cell survival and functionality during and after printing process. Glue4Life has shown excellent biocompatibility and tissue formation.

PRINTABILITY

Glue4Life offers printable hydrogels with shear-thinning properties resulting in excellent printability and printing quality even with small nozzle diameters.

STABLE PRINTS

Glue4Life results in printed structures that maintain their shape during printing process as well as in long-term cultures in vitro.
