On this third and final session of the series, we took an in depth look at the NGB-R workflow from the user’s perspective.
As a review, the NGB-R system provides disruptive 4D bioprinting technology including laser-assisted bioprinting – focusing on the cytocentric approach to printing which allows tissues to grow in a more natural environment, leading to morphogenesis and predictable biological processes including cell differentiation, migration, multiplication, and metabolic processes.
This session started with a thorough review of the computer assisted design (CAD) software designing a tissue from initial concept to fabrication plan through cell patterning and layering. Once designed we moved onto the bioprinting process on the NGB-R system hardware, from sequencing printing jobs all the way through to layer-by-layer biofabrication with different printing technologies. We focused on the laser bioprinting technology, integral to the 4D bioprinting capabilities of the NGB-R system. We also demonstrated the extrusion and inkjet capabilities of the system, which can be used for printing extracellular matrix compounds as well as other bio-inks.
During this webinar, participants had the opportunity to ask questions throughout the webinar, which were answered by the team in real-time.
