This product is low endotoxin version alginate, it is lyophilized powder and ready to be used in biomedical applications.

Alginate is an anionic polysaccharide that is widely used in pharmaceutical and biomedical applications due to its non-animal origin, low toxicity, biocompatibility, and biodegradability. Alginate hydrogels are commonly used to fabricate tissue engineering scaffolds, bioinks for 3D bioprinting, and nanocarriers for drug & gene delivery. Alginate is commonly crosslinked into a hydrogel via ionic-crosslinking with divalent cations (e.g., Ca2+).

Recent advances in three-dimensional (3-D) printing offer an excellent opportunity to address critical challenges faced by current tissue engineering approaches. Alginate hydrogels have been used extensively as bioinks for 3-D bioprinting. However, most previous research has focused on native alginates

Success of bone tissue engineering (BTE) relies on the osteogenic microarchitecture of the biopolymeric scaffold and appropriate spatiotemporal distribution of therapeutic molecules (growth factors and drugs) inside it. However, the existing technologies have failed to address both the issues together.
