Printed samples from our systems
Bio3D systems are great for growing multiple layers of cells and tissues in 3D, ideal for cancer, stem cell and regenerative medicine research. Scientists can also print in 2D format for high-throughput studies.
Researchers can also study the interactions of different cells, molecules and materials in a 2D/3D environment by printing different materials together. For example, different species of bacteria can be printed in different geometries next to each other to study their interactions with one another.
Despite its name, bioprinting is not just limited to bioapplications. You can also use Bio3D systems in materials and polymers research, including work involving hydrogels, bio-gels, plastics, photocuring materials, polymers, DNA, vitamins etc. We offer various different printing technologies including jetting, UV and blue light photopolymerisation.
Bioprinting can deposit different cells, tissues and their relevant materials together to create constructs that are suitable for diagnostics as well for medical research.
It is also hoped that 3D printed tissues can eventually be used for human organ transplants.
Bioprinting can speed up and lower the cost of drug development and testing.
Instead of developing and screening drugs by the traditional, tedious, slow and expensive methods, pharma companies can now make use of Bio3D systems to develop and screen drugs faster. Our versatility also means that companies and researchers can now use a single system for different applications without the need to constantly purchase new systems.
Pharma companies can also use Bio3D systems to create an "organ-on-chip" to better represent a human body for drug testing.
Patients and individuals often require different nutritional requirements due to varying disease states, ages and levels of activity. They require a personalise diet or medicine.
Bioprinting can help to research and develop such nutrition supplements and even food that are specially catered to each individual. This saves cost, time, is versatile and highly personalised.
