The authors discuss the results of a study that was conducted to determine how sensitivity of cross-linked gelatin materials varied with respect to their bloom strength, type, and source. Twelve gelatin samples were studied: four of type A and eight of type B, all with bloom strengths varying between 100-275. Gelatin rings prepared from these materials were tested separately by the formaldehyde test and the photostability chamber test. Although cross-linking behavior was found to relate to bloom strength, no correlation was found regarding gelatin type or source.
