Silk hand-dyed with Alcian blue histological stain (10% solution), handwoven on 3D printed ABS loom (including weaving tools), osteoblasts in DMEM culture media + Ascorbic Acid + 1% Penicillin/Streptomycin + Glutamate. Handwoven in-lab using aseptic technique. Alcian blue at 10% stock concentration proved to be cytotoxic, destroying osteoblasts.
