Project description

The 3D Cell- and tissue printer allows, in contrast to the currently availabe BioScaffolder®, to print simultaneously soft materials (hydrogels) in combination with cells (cell friendly). Due to the presence of multiple printheads, different cell types and materials can be printed, which is leading to the possibility to biofabricate complex tissues in vitro.
