Aleph Objects Partners with FluidForm to Launch Bioprinter this Summer
In order to manufacture bioprinting hardware and achieve a long-term goal of creating functional tissues, Aleph Objects, known for its popular LulzBot 3D printers, is collaborating with 3D bioprinter developer, FluidForm.
“We’re still at the very beginning of being able to build real functional tissues with 3D bioprinting. Collaborations like the one we are building with LulzBot will help make this a reality faster,” explains FluidForm CTO Adam Feinberg.
FluidForm developed the Freeform Reversible Embedding of Suspended Hydrogels (FRESH) platform which researchers use to 3D print bioinks and soft materials in one print. This work was developed at Carnegie Mellow University’s Regenerative Biomaterials and Therapeutics Group.
According to a press release, the first jointly-developed bioprinting solution will be available later this summer with more to come.
