Adding biomolecular recognition capability to 3D printed objects: 4D printing – Presented by Céline A. Mandon, 3d.FAB – Université Lyon 1. The availability of new printing technologies and materials, in additive manufacturing processes and more specifically 3D printing, initiate profound mutation of biotechnology engineers’ way of thinking. Our group have been working on this new paradigm for the last 2 years, digging deeply into the 3D printing technologies and ink formulation to achieve complex 3D objects, composed of printed living cells evolving into human tissues or photopolymers bearing biomolecules. These 4D printed objects, by the access to unprecedented sensing layer complex geometries, generate biological diagnostic devices such as immunosensors but also enzymatically active 3D objects for biosensing and catalysis.
