Patterning tissues for cell microenvironment engineering using the Biopixlar single-cell resolution bioprinter
February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us for an exciting talk by Fluicell CTO Dr. Gavin Jeffries on using high-resolution bioprinting to control cell microenvironment. This webinar is co-organized by the Tissue and Cell Eningeering Society (TCES) and Swift Analytical Ltd.
The seminar is chaired by Professor Sarah Cartmell of The University of Manchester.
The progress of bioprinting technologies and applications has accelerated tremendously in recent years. However, reproducing the complexity of tissue biology, especially mimicking the architecture of cellular microenvironment on an individual cell level remains a challenge.
In this presentation we will demonstrate how Fluicell employs hydrodynamically confined devices to build biological tissues from individual cells. Furthermore, we will demonstrate the advantages of patterning tissues and controlling the microenvironment using an open-volume microfluidic approach.
