New Hybrid Biofabrication technology
With the final aim to create scaffolds that could better reproduce the physicochemical and structural gradients present in our tissues, we have developed a new hybrid additive manufacturing technology that allows to blend two different materials during fabrication. In addition, an atmospheric plasma pen can further modify the deposited fibers in a layer-by-layer manner by either providing tailored surface topographies or coating.
The work has been recently published in Nature Communication and available at this link:
The work was also possible thanks to the precious collaboration of partners from the H2020 FAST project http://project-fast.eu/en/home and in particular to the contribution of Nadir https://www.nadir-tech.it/en/home-en/ and Prof. Patelli at University of Padova.
