3D Bioprinting and Automation
The manufacturing of 3-dimensional tissues and organs will require the production of 3-dimensional scaffolding. These bioscaffolds can be produced through a variety of methods including decellularization, electron spinning, and 3D Bioprinting.
3D bioprinters enable customizable structures, like bioscaffolds, to be manufactured quickly and with less variability than if made by hand. In this activity participants will race against a 3D bioprinter to examine how machines help ensure efficient and accurate production of 3D structures.
