Alginic acid, alginate, is an anionic polysaccharide distributed widely in the cell walls of brown algae. Alginate is biocompatible and gels in the presence of divalent cations such as calcium making it useful for cell encapsulation and immobilization. Immobilized cells have use in bioproduction and bioremediation processes.

High-density biomass production is currently only realized in biofilm-based photobioreactors. Harvest yields of whole biofilms are self-limited by daughter-upon-parent cell growth that hinders light and leads to respiratory biomass losses. In this work, we demonstrate a sustainable multi-harvest approach for

Both of the long-term fidelity and cell viability of three-dimensional (3D)-bioprinted constructs are essential to precise soft tissue repair. However, the shrinking/swelling behavior of hydrogels brings about inadequate long-term fidelity of constructs, and bioinks containing excessive polymer are detrimental to
