3D printed bioreactor enables bioprinting, perfusion and live imaging

Written by Georgi Makin

In this article, Geoffrey Potjewyd (University of Manchester, UK) reviews a recent report from Scientific Reports. Geoffrey Potjewyd1 1Regenerative Medicine and Neuroscience PhD student, University of Manchester (UK) Bioreactors are tissue engineering devices that are designed to implement a stimulus or carry out a biological function on a tissue or cells. They can be designed to implement a physical stress – commonly through flow or compression – or to carry out a biochemical process. A research group from Indiana University School of Medicine (USA) have developed a 3D printed bioreactor, which allows for 3D bioprinting, variable perfusion-based flow, and live...
