A significant change in the shear storage modulus (G') though was noted, which results in approximately 50% stiffer gels about half an hour after the cross-linking with genipin, in comparison with the collagen-only hydrogels which maintain similar moduli.
Hydrogels are polymeric crosslinked, hydrophilic, three-dimensional networks that are not soluble in water but can absorb large quantities of this molecule [1, 2].

Current hydrogels are not porous enough, the researchers say, meaning that they don't allow neighboring cells to pass through toward a wound to help it mend.
CNF hydrogels can also potentially be used in bioprinting, which includes the printing of cells and artificial organs, as well as to reproduce complex diseases such as cancer in the controlled environment of a lab, according to the researchers.
The real-time electrical signals of the hydrogels at different strains were recorded by using a CHI660E Electrochemical workstation.
The swelling capacity of hydrogels was determined in different salt solutions (KCl, NaCl, Ca[Cl.sub.2], and Mg[Cl.sub.2]) and also with various concentrations like 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1, and 1.2 N according to the above method (Figure 7).
