Toward bioprinting industrialization – Presented by Fabien Guillemot, Poietis at the 3D Medical Conference, which will take place on 30-31 January 2018 at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Bioprinting has been defined as “the use of computer-aided transfer processes for patterning and assembling living and non-living materials with a prescribed 2D or 3D organization in order to produce bio-engineered structures serving in regenerative medicine, pharmacokinetic and basic cell biology studies”.

From a technological point of view, different bioprinting technologies have been developed so far. Recently, Laser-Assisted Bioprinting (LAB) technology has emerged as an alternative method to inkjet and bioextrusion methods, thereby overcoming some of their limitations (namely clogging of print heads or capillaries) to pattern living cells and biomaterials with a micron-scale resolution and high cell viability.

French Start-up Develops Unique Technology for 4D Laser Bioprinting of Living Tissue

A French start-up has developed unique technology for 4D laser bioprinting of living tissue. This is a promising system for a tissue engineering market worth an estimated 15 billion dollars.

Poietis has pulled off an extraordinary gamble: to design living tissue – cell layer by cell layer – just like printed objects. It has achieved this via a 3D laser printer, which uses cells and biomaterial instead of paper and ink.
