3D printing of vascularized tissues
Soft microfluidics for microperfused
in vitro tissues and organoids
Interested in tackling the challenges of tissue fabrication and in vitro vascularization by generating networks of capillary-scale 3D vessels? Then join the upcoming live webinar and don’t miss the expert presentations on 3D printing vascularized tissues for microperfusion. Get inspired by 3D printing at the scale of biological tissues and vessels and gain insights into application scenarios for tissue engineering, disease modeling, drug discovery and in regenerative medicine.
Join the webinar and experience a live demonstration of Quantum X bio, including the complete printing workflow from print preparation to execution and real-time monitoring with the most advanced bioprinting software. A variety of functionalized biomaterials will be discussed, including both hard and soft materials for microvessel printing. Finally, you will learn how to develop synthetic vascularization platforms using hydrogel printing for a soft microfluidic system.
Prof. Adrian Ranga is Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the KU Leuven in Belgium. He will introduce us to the field of regenerative medicine and the role of tissue models and organoids with a special focus on vascularization. He will also talk about a 3D soft microfluidic platform for vascularization using hydrogel printing and will focus on the future development of 3D engineered tissues and vessels.
Dr. Marc Hippler is Materials Development Expert at Nanoscribe GmbH & Co KG. He will present the capabilities of Two-Photon Polymerization for 3D microfabrication at the scale of cells and tissues with a special focus on the latest Quantum X bio bioprinting features. He will also give a live demonstration of the system printing high-precision meshes for tissue microperfusion, showing the printing workflow from design, to print preparation, execution, and results.
