(March 11, 2021) Session 2: A Detailed Review of 4D Bioprinting Applications using the NGB-R System from Poietis


In this second session of the series, we took a deeper look into specific 4D bioprinting applications and examples using the next generation bioprinting (NGB-R) system from Poietis. As a review, the NGB-R system provides disruptive 4D bioprinting technology including laser-assisted bioprinting – focusing on the cytocentric approach to printing which allows tissues to grow in a more natural environment, leading to morphogenesis and predictable biological processes including cell differentiation, migration, multiplication, and metabolic processes.

During this webinar we provided in-depth information about some specific applications, showing specific examples

  • Skin
  • Pancreatic
  • Liver
  • Brain organoids – to help study brain diseases and neuronal activity.
  • Cartilaginous tissues – newer application being explored in more detail.

Please join us for the third and final session in this series a live virtual demo will be provided showing a detailed overview of both the hardware and software components of the NGB-R system.

Please ensure you register for the subsequent sessions in this series. Also, feel free to review the first session in this series where we announced the partnership between Scintica and Poietis, and provided a detailed overview of the NGB-R system.

Please ensure you register for ALL the subsequent sessions in this series.
