Articles and Publications on Bioprinting

Many people have wondered and asked what and how 3D printing can aid in their research. Efforts, time and costs are required in the decision to make the first step into 3D printing and bioprinting, thus we understand that many scientists and researchers have burning questions on these new areas.

Here, we compiled the most recent studies and articles from around the world on 3D printing and bioprinting. This list will be updated from time to time and we hope this non-exhaustive list will give you the reader some insights into 3D printing and bioprinting. As the trend in 3D printing will only keep rising, we encourage you to search for more publications on as well.

If you are interested in us giving a presentation or workshop in your organisation on 3D printing and bioprinting, we will be glad to do that too. Please contact us.

If you are very new to 3D printing and bioprinting, and are looking to explore these technologies without burning a hole in your wallet, you may want to look at our new entry-level printer, the Bio3D Explorer.
