Microfluidic bioprinting: Lab Results

By coupling a microfluidic printing head with a gantry motorized system, researchers at the Tissue Engineering Lab, Università Campus Bio-Medico were able to print skeletal myoblasts in a 3D fashion, leading to increased myogenesis and myotube alignment.

The improved resolution guaranteed by the microfluidic printing head was essential to improve cell alignment and myotube formation.

The study, performed in the framework of an international collaboration, have been published on Biomaterials.
