UWA Envisions the Future; 3D Bioprinting Directly into Wounds

Guest post by Hayley Glover, University of Western Australia.

With all the hype of 3D printed organs, replacement joints and blood vessels it can be quite overwhelming for a novice in the 3D bioprinting field. Where do you start and how do you get your head around the different materials, potential applications and the jargon used...

How to Print with a BioBots Printer

In this post, we’re going to take you through some of the basics behind using one of our 3D bioprinters. What does it look like? How does it work? Well, it all comes down to three pretty simple steps.

The Frontier of Clear 3D Tissues

At BioBots, our goal is to build tools that will allow scientists to explore questions in 3D culture. Yet, while this approach brings us closer to achieving the physiological microenvironments that cells experience, it makes it more difficult for us to observe what cells are doing deeper within these 3D constructs.

Molly Boutin, a...

Materials for Use in 3D Biofab

We’ve talked about what bioprinting entails in general. We’ve touched on the types of cells that we can incorporate into bioprinted constructs. We’ve also discussed the potential of this technology to create novel chimeric structures and compared 3D bioprinting to plastic 3D printing. It’s now time to talk about another critical...

Bioprinting Cardiac Cell & Tissue Engineering

As one of the first groups who are working with BioBots, Inc. to assess the seemingly endless potential of their bioprinter, we felt it would be good to share a bit about why we’re excited about bioprinting. Sohaib and his team have done a fantastic job describing the potential advances that bioprinting brings to tissue

Reprogramming the Fate of Cells

In the previous post I wrote titled, “What is Bioprinting?”, I discussed biomaterials, cells, and creating representative 3D structures as being the basis of bioprinting. Over the course of the next few posts, I’ll try to delve a little deeper into each of these aspects in order to provide some more context about the challenges of...
