3D-bioprinted capillary-like networks as versatile organ-on-a-chip platform

Last month, the 44th Annual Conference of the European Society for Artificial Organs was held in Vienna. The conference offered a diverse program with impressive talks and fascinating posters. Andreas Blaeser, scientist at RWTH Aachen and CEO of Black Drop Biodrucker GmbH, demonstrated recent progress in 3D-bioprinting research. In the session Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine, Blaeser, introduced a novel Drop-on-Demand bioprinting approach for generation of capillary-like networks. The presented technique holds great promise to facilitate fabrication of vascularized organs-on-a-chip in the near future.

Controlling Shear Stress in 3D-Bioprinting

We are happy to announce that the publication Controlling Shear Stress in 3D-Bioprinting is a Key Factor to Balance Printing Resolution and Stem Cell Integrity was selected by Advanced Healthcare Materials to be included in one of their five new Virtual Issues that highlight recent cutting-edge research on current hot topics.

The publication will be featured in the “Biofabrication for Tissue Engineering” Issue and will be freely available for everybody to access, download, and read until the end of 2017.
