A 3D bioprinting platform with exchangeable print heads
3D bioprinting is the technology with the highest potential to engineer tissue surrogates. The key 3D bioprinting elements are the printing head and the bioinks, which consist of the live cells and extracellular components. The 3D print head controls the deposition of the bioink, and these elements cannot be dissociated from each other. Therefore, the successful bioprinting of functional tissue surrogates is directly linked to the possibility of a 3D printer that supports the characteristics of each bioink designed explicitly for each compartment of a specific tissue. The EU-funded BioPrint4All project proposes to test and prove the feasibility of an on-demand 3D printing platform that can combine multiple print heads with different features.
