"A novel method is presented to biofabricate anisotropic nanocomposite hydrogels through a mild and biocompatible process driven by multiple external stimuli: magnetic field, temperature, and light. The functionality of this stimuliresponsive hydrogel is studied creating i) 3D cell-instructive platforms for in vitro morphogenesis, and ii) a 3D printable magnetoresponsive ink for fabricating small-scale bioinspired soft robots"

3D cell culture at Curio Biotech mimicks in vivo conditions.
Curio Biotech is a start-up CRO company providing services to clients ln the lite sciences sector of the pharma, cosmetlc, nutraceutlcal and diagnostic industries.
Curio Biotech constantly improves existing 30 cell culture systems and further develops novel in vitro models.
These novel 30 cell cultures can be used not only for in vitro drug discovery, screening of compounds and pre-clinlcal investigation, but can also be translated for various clinical applications.
In our ageing society, there is a huge medical need for therapies against degenerative muscle and tendon diseases. This study by researchers from ZHAW and Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research describes a novel drug screening platform with automated production of 3D musculoskeletal-tendon-like tissues, representing a promising tool to address musculoskeletal diseases. Cells and bioink were printed using the 3DDiscovery™ bioprinter, in dumbbell lines designed by regenHU’s integrated BioCAD™ program.

Working on a way to create a flexible bio-battery, researchers at the University of Fribourg used four compositions of hydrogel, and combined them to form a continuous series that mimicked the electric eel’s organized electrocytes anatomy. All hydrogel patterns were printed using a regenHU 3DDiscovery 3D bioprinter, with a custom print plate.
"My research is really awesome, because we're using 3D printers to create human body parts from scratch."
