New technique combines bioprinting with cryopreservation to construct frozen structures

By | December 31, 2021
A new technique takes bioprinting -; in which an ink of cells is printed, layer by layer, to form a structure -; to a whole new, and icy level. Investigators from the Zhang lab at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have developed a technology that they term “cryobioprinting,” a method that uses a bioink embedded with cells to print frozen, complex structures that can be easily stored for later use.
