β-sheet forming peptides self-assembly video

Beta-sheet forming peptide self-assembly

Video illustrating the self-assembly and gelation process of β-sheet forming peptide.



Hydrogels videos


Hydrogel injection                 Hydrogel injection in saline solution                 Hydrogel spraying

These videos exemplify the versatility of our technology. Gels can be made injectable (left video) or sprayable (right video) and are designed to stiffen when in contact with saline solutions (middle video).



Mouse 3T3 fibroblast on hydrogels videos


Neutral Hard Hydrogel                  Charged Hard Hydrogel                  Charged Soft Hydrogel

These videos exemplify the how materials properties affect cell behaviour. Here we have seeded murine 3T3 fibroblast on the surface of three hydrogel with varying physical properties. On a neutral and stiff gel (left video) cells do not attach and are mobile, on a charged and stiff gel (middle video) cells attach strongly to the surface and grow as thick sheet and on a charged and soft gel (right video) cells attach less strongly and grow as a thick sheet.

Gel in gel printing                  Air Presuure Printing

These videos exemplify the how our techonolgy allows us to design hydrogels for 3D-bioprinting applications using sinringe based 3D-printers.
