3D Human Tissues for Research
Development of the NovoGen Bioprinting™ platform has enabled the automated fabrication of a wide array of tissues representing many organ systems. By using living cells as building blocks, tissues are generated that are highly cellular and achieve spatially defined three-dimensional architecture without dependence on polymeric or decellularized tissue scaffolding.
These compositionally- and architecturally-defined living human tissues are compelling tools for understanding the effects of a particular pathogen or treatment, enabling scientists to interpret traditional biochemical or genetic data in a context that more closely approximates the in vivo environment. 3D tissues that we have fabricated include:
