Blafar Injectable Hydrogels

Injectable Hydrogels for Translational Medicine

Blafar provides a series of advanced injectable hydrogel systems as the optimal microenvironments for customised cell culture and regenerative medicine.

These biocompatible injectable hydrogels are based on precisely designed functionalised extracellular matrix (ECM)-based biopolymers and/or our unique biocompatible synthetic HB PEG-based polymers. Blafar hydrogel precursors can be injected with minimal invasion and rapidly crosslinked in situ by UV irradiation or click chemistry.

Blafar hydrogels display a spectrum of substrate options and physical properties depending on the functional group densities and substrate concentrations designed specifically to meet requirements of a wide range of applications.

Advantages of Blafar Hydrogel

Blafar hydrogel components (naturally derived or synthetic) mimic critical features of the natural ECM environment.

Controlled degradability of Blafar hydrogel in a tunable manner without generating toxic by-products.

Tailored hydrogel system to accommodate specific application requirements.

Scaleable manufacturing capacity.

Blafar hydrogels can be crosslinked in situ, matching irregular defects with minimal invasion to adhere to the surroundings during gel formation.

- 3D printing

Which Blafar Hydrogel is ideal for you?

The hydrogel is flexible in respect to gelation time, crosslink density, functionalisation and degradation; formed by crosslinking of thiol modified ECM-based biopolymers (e.g. hyaluronic acid, gelatin, chondroitin sulfate) with vinyl modified ECM-based biopolymers or hyperbranched synthetic polymers with acrylate end functional groups.
