Sodium alginate (SA) is an anionic copolymer composed of 1,4-linked [beta]-D-mannuronic acid (M-blocks) and [alpha]-L-guluronic acid (G-blocks), interspersed with regions of alternating structure.
Researchers from the Pharmaceutical Sciences Department, and Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department of North Dakota State University, have developed a novel hybrid hydrogel -- sodium alginate integrated with carboxymethyl cellulose -- which has demonstrated high effectiveness in 3D bio-printing application.
Encapsulation of explant for synthetic seed production: For encapsulation, nodal segments of size 3 mm were excised from in vitro culture of rose and dipped in sterile solution of sodium alginate (as gel matrix) of various concentrations (1-4%) prepared in full strength MS salts lacking sucrose and phytohormones.
Four solutions containing 2% sodium alginate (Vetec, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), 10% prebiotic and 100ml sterile distilled water were prepared in the following formulations: sodium alginate (ALGL); sodium alginate+rice bran (AFAL); and sodium alginate+inulin (AINL) and sodium alginate+hi-maize (National Starch, Bridgewater, USA) (AHML).

Three days later, skin prick test (SPT) of sodium alginate and cementin was then performed; however, results were all negative at the normal concentration and at 1:10 and 1:100 dilutions.
The hydrogels were made by dissolving sodium alginate and NaSA in water at 2 different concentrations (low, LALG; high, HALG) and then adding calcium chloride.
Sodium alginate (SA) and gelatin (GA), two common types of hydrogel, have already been widely researched for wound dressing owing to some of their eminently properties [19-24].
