Focus of the laboratory

The laboratory is primarily intended for 3D-bioprinting of heterogeneous objects and hydrogel constructs based on a digital CAD model, using an additive manufacturing method. We are currently developing our own biomaterials based on polymer cross-linking and testing them in the 3D bioprinting process. Within the laboratory, we have the technology of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Injection pore filling (IPF) and Injection volume filling (IVF).

FDM – the principle of this technology consists in melting the filament in the print head. According to the so-called He applies the G-code to the mat and the object is created layer by layer.

IPF - technology of injection pore filling (IPF) allowing to select specific layers on which cells will be injected into selected pores. This also allows the injection of controlled amounts that may even be different in each individual layer. This technology increases and guarantees the survival and viability of cells in extreme conditions, such as in the case of working with thermoplastic polymers at high temperature.

IVF – it is a technology that uses 3D-bioprinting directly of the hydrogel from the injection cartridge.


The laboratory was created with the support of CEMBAM and OPENMED projects
