Bioprinting at high resolution: 3D printing accurate and customizable models

Written by Daniel Barrett

New research into bioprinting has allowed for high speed and precise printing at an incredibly high resolution. This could make 3D-printed scaffolds increasingly accurate and valuable to future studies. A new project led by the Vienna University of Technology (Austria) has developed a new bioprinting process that allows for highly precise 3D scaffolds to be printed at speeds of 1 meter per second. The team uses a bioink to embed cells into the scaffold, and with their new findings, 3D-printed scaffolds could potentially become progressively accurate and customizable. Figure 1. Cells spreading in a microstructure: Cells spreading in a 3D...
