A highly robust hydrogel device made from a single biopolymer formulation is reported. Owing to the presence of covalent and non-covalent crosslinks, these engineered systems were able to (i) sustain a compressive strength of\ ca.\ 20 MPa, (ii) quickly recover upon unloading, and (iii) encapsulate cells with high viability rates.
