“Introduction of an open-source, multi-material bioprinting platform”, Presented by Sascha Schwarz, CANTER

Over the last year, a new bioprinter platform has been developed. The modular design enables the user to choose from different printheads, crosslinking methods and additional components, crucial for printing cell-laden hydrogels. This prototype is a stand-alone device, which can be operated independently of almost all lab infrastructure, because measurement and control systems for temperature, humidity and gas concentration, are already integrated. By means of this approach, we introduce an open-source bioprinting platform that can be rebuild, used and adapted at ease by other scientific groups for their purposes.

Danny Cabrera, BioBots, Presents: “Standard Tools for Biology”

Biology is the most sophisticated manufacturing technology that we know of. If we could control life, we could cure disease, eliminate the organ waiting list, revert climate change and push life to other planets. However, our ability to engineer living systems has been restricted by the lack of standard tools that exist for manipulating biology. BioBots has addressed this need by creating a standard suite of digital biofabrication tools. Together with our partners and clients, we are blending biology with robotics and reimagining the modern laboratory, pushing the human race forward.

“3D Bioprinting and its legal challenges”, Presented by Mathias Klümper, Lützeler Klümper Rechtsanwälte

This session will provide a practical overview of the legal challenges that go along with 3D bioprinting. There are many pitfalls in 3D printing biotechnological products, e.g. the question who is the legal manufacturer, the nature of the product and the required approvals/authorizations. The presentation will address this issue as well as pros and cons of each decision.
