Printed Electronics with GeSiM Bioprinters

Printed Electronics with GeSiM Bioprinters: GeSiM bioprinters offer qualitative advantages over the competition. Two important points: The variety of different extrusion tools allows to print a huge range of polymers, more than just biocompatible materials. The high XYZ accuracy – particularly with BS5.x instruments – allows to print at higher resolution then many other bioprinters [...]

Drug Release of Antibiotics through 2-phase 3D-printed Hydrogel Structures

Drug Release of Antibiotics through 2-phase 3D-printed Hydrogel Structures: Anti-inflammatory antibiotics are crucial for the treatment of open fractures and large, open wounds. Several ways to administer such medication are known, but the controlled local application at the wound area is often difficult. A team from University Hospital Dresden now published a new approach, using [...]

Array-based Chemical Synthesis

Array-based Chemical Synthesis: DNA- and protein microarrays are available for many years, nowadays widely used for modern in-vitro diagnostics. They are based on prefabricated biomolecules, tethered on solid surfaces by special surface chemistry (E.g. Amino-silane slides). When the spotted arrays are exposed to the analyte, just one specific reaction can happen on each spot with [...]
