Collaborative Research Team Develops Bioresin for DLP 3D Printing for Synthesizing Tissue

Collaborative Research Team Develops Bioresin for DLP 3D Printing for Synthesizing Tissue

In typical biofabrication and 3D bioprinting methods, layers of cell-laden hydrogel structures called bioinks are extruded to build functioning biological tissues. But using bioresins laden with cells, instead of bioinks, for lithography bioprinting methods, like digital light processing (DLP) and stereolithography (SLA), can be used to create patterns that are even more intricate than those possible with extrusion-based […]

Researchers 3D Print Platelets for Faster Healing

Platelets play an important role in the bloodstream – if there’s an injury, the platelets are drawn to the site, where they clot and stop the bleeding. They also release growth factors that help repair soft tissue such as skin, muscle, tendons and blood vessels, as well as “recruiting” other cells to help start the […]
