Novel bio-ink for 3D printing with stem cells

Written by Lauren Pulling

Researchers from the University of Bristol (UK) have developed a new bio-ink for 3D bioprinting with stem cells, taking the field closer to being able to print complex tissues with a patient’s own cells. Researchers from the University of Bristol (UK) have developed a novel bio-ink for 3D printing stem cells. Designing a suitable print medium for bioprinting represents a major hurdle in the 3D printing field, as inks must provide structural integrity, sufficient nutrient diffusion and be printed in cytocompatible conditions so as not to harm cells. The new porous bio-ink addresses these challenges, bringing scientists closer to producing...
