- Current inks might require temperature or pH levels that could damage cells, which creates biotissue printing limitations.
- So researchers combined biocompatible silk proteins sand glycerol to create a new ink, that was clear, flexible, didn’t dissolve in water, and didn’t require high temperatures to process.
- The new biocompatible ink could be used in the far future to create implants or custom biological tissue.
Silk ink could be the key to 3D printed biotissue
