Hyperelastic Bone bioink is a biomaterial made by Dimension Inx composed of > 90% hydroxyapatite, the same mineral found in teeth and bones. This bioink is printed at room temperature, dries quickly, and can be easily seeded with cells post-print. Hyperelastic bone bioprinting can be used to print any number of orthopedic or dental constructs.
Hyperelastic Bone bioink offers several unique advantages over existing hard tissue biomaterials. It can be printed at speeds higher than 20mm/s, which is nearly a 10X increase over most bone materials. Despite being mostly mineral, it remains flexible, making it very user-friendly.
One of the biggest benefits of Hyperelastic Bone bioink is its ability to be customized. Drug molecules and growth factors can be easily integrated into the material before bioprinting.
Hyperelastic Bone can be 3D bioprinted into user-defined structures and handled immediately. The 3D bioprinted materials and structures can then be cut, folded, rolled, punched, and further handled as the user the desires. Being comprised mostly of hydroxyapatite, this is an excellent material choice for hard tissue related modeling, basic science, and engineering research.
