Bioprinter Development

Open source bioprinting tools and workflows developed by JIMMI.

We developed 3D Printing hardware and printing parameters to use with the FRESH 3D bioprinting method, devleoped at carnegie melon, we printed proof of concept for vasculature.

The design for a chilled syringe jacket could maintain printing temperatures below freezing. In this test we maintained 4.3°C, an ideal temperature for 3D printing in collagen solutions. The close up below shows frost forming on the surface of a peltier-cooled build plate.

A HEPA-filtered, positive-pressure glovebox was also designed. 

We presented our research in the form of a class for attendees at the Connaught Institute Bioprinting Conference at University of Toronto in Summer 2016. A group of 20 MSc and PhD students attended.

Participants at the U of T class built open source bioprinting kits we created for the Prusa i3, and used them to print 3d forms in alginate using the FRESH method.
