Open & Affordable 3D Bioprinting -
Starting with an open source RepRap Ender 5 3D printer, we convert it to a bioprinter, and design some simple bioinks to print with.

We were inspired to take an inexpensive RepRap 3D printer (an open source 3D printer capable of printing a kit of itself) and convert it for bioprinting applications. Current commercial bioprinters are in the region of tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars, and we wanted to see if we could make a great one for a fraction of the cost.

For our project we'll start with an open source Creality Ender 5 3D printer, and convert it into a bioprinter, capable of printing bioinks. We document the process of converting the printer, and creating some example bioinks here.  3dprinting  bioprinting  medical  sumi

Instructibles : Low Cost Bioprinter tutorial
The goal of this project is to develop a low-cost bioprinter to make bioprinting more accessible to research institutions. Currently, low-end bioprinters cost approximately $10,000 while high-end bioprinters cost approximately $170,000. In contrast, our printer can be built for approximately $375.

Texas A&M research team develops bioinks
A team of researchers at Texas A&M University has developed an innovative way to print therapeutics in 3D for regenerative medicine. In a recent study conducted at Texas A&M, researchers in Dr. Akhilesh K Gaharwar's lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering formulated a bioink consisting of 2D mineral nanoparticles to sequester and 3D print therapeutics at precise locations. Their findings were published in Advanced Healthcare Materials.

The team has designed a new class of hydrogel bioinks -- 3D structures that can absorb and retain considerable amounts of water -- loaded with therapeutic proteins.

5 Most Promising 3D Printed Organs for Transplant | All3DP
3D bioprinting, the process of using bioink composed of tissue or human cells, has come a long way over the last decade. The goal of developing functioning whole organs, such as kidneys, livers or hearts, is becoming more and more of a reality.

Bio-printing 101: How to Bioprint at Home @
Bioprinting is an exciting area to follow as it invigorates the ideas of Frankenstein and a bunch of other sci-fi scenarios that make us slightly paranoid. So how does someone create their own monster within their garage? Well, that is pretty far fetched at the moment, but there are ways to get involved in this field in small ways.

Bio-Printers Are Churning out Living Fixes to Broken Spines | WIRED
Researchers say that bio-printed tissue can be used to test the effects of drug treatments, for example, with an eventual goal of printing entire organs that can be grown and then transplanted into a patient. The latest step toward 3D-printed replacements of failed human parts comes from a team at UC San Diego. It has bio-printed a section of spinal cord that can be custom-fit into a patient’s injury.

Creating Living Materials Using Bacteria and 3D Printing | | The Voice of 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing
In a paper entitled “Programmable and printable Bacillus subtilis biofilms as engineered living materials,” a team of researchers discusses how they used 3D printing to produce custom nanoscale biomaterials from the natural secretion of amyloid fibers from the bacteria Bacillus subtilis.

3D.FAB bioprint “living bandage” within regenerative medicine research project
Clinicians of various specialties require autologous implantable tissues to repair and replace damaged tissue caused by diseases or trauma. With 3D bioprinting it is possible to manufacture such tissues, however, its biomechanical characteristics reduce its capabilities to be sutured.

As a result, 3D.FAB, a French additive manufacturing platform, is developing a “living bandage” using 3D bioprinting and direct additive manufacturing. According to the platform’s project “STRESSKIN,” such technologies can be positioned in this field of regenerative and personalized medicine to address this issue.
