In situ functionalization of scaffolds during extrusion-based 3D plotting using a piezoelectric nanoliter pipette

Short Communication by Stefan Giron, Anja Lode and Michael Gelinsky (Technische Universität Dresden, Germany) exploring extrusion-based 3D printing using a piezoelectric dispensing device – exclusively free for members.

Extrusion-based 3D printing allows the use of materials with higher viscosities compared to printing with modified inkjet printers, resulting in the possibility of a wider range of scaffolds. In this Short Communication from Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine, Stefan Giron, Anja Lode and Michael Gelinsky (Technische Universität Dresden, Germany) discuss extrusion-based 3D printing using a piezoelectric dispensing device, aiming to functionalize the 3D scaffolds during manufacture by integrating biological components.
