“We are promoting commercial collaborations with leading international companies in the field of 3D bio-printing of tissue and organ, with the aim of taking part in providing a solution to the significant need for life saving organs,” said Yehiel Tal, CEO of CollPlant. “This market need represents high economic potential for the company.” CollPlant’s bio-ink enables the printing of three-dimensional scaffolds combined with human cells and/or growth factors, as a basis for tissue or organ generation, a statement from the company explained. In addition to making use of collagen, the ink formulations can also include other proteins and polymers that are compatible with various printing technologies and printed organ characteristics. “The new patent establishes CollPlant’s technology status in 3D biological printing, creates barriers to entry for competitors and increases the trust of potential partners,” Tal said. “CollPlant’s technology is highly regarded by major international players, and our objective is to enter into our first significant collaboration this year.”
