(C) ZAHW 2016 Sonia de Andrade gelatin SEMPrintable matrices for bioprinting applications

- Short Communication by Markus Rimann

February 2017: Gelatine-derivatives are widely used in bioprinting due to their cell-compatibility. However this criterion is by far not sufficient for industrial applications. Markus Rimann  develops bioprinting technologies for cell cultivation in tissue-like environments for drug and substance testing at Zürcher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften (ZHAW). He collaborates with industry partners such as regenHU SA (former Delta Robotics, now part of CPA Group SA) at Villaz-Saint-Pierre (CH), or the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research at Basel (CH).

In the short communication he provides a brief sketch of issues and current solutions following discussions of his group’s work during the January meeting of EPFL and Swiss scienceindustries (former Swiss Society of Chemical Industries) at Saas Fee.
