Tweaking Bioinks Palette, One-Drop 3D Printing

In this issue of “From Academia”, we share three articles focusing on maximizing bioinks palette using complementary thermo-reversible gelatin network, dual-factor releasing and gradient-structuring, and what one-drop 3D printing is. The first article addresses the limited availability of functional bioinks for bioprinting where they demonstrate the use of a thermo-reversible gelatin network to allow the printing of sophisticated biomaterials not attainable by standard printing parameters. The second article presents the ulitization of dual-factor releasing mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)–laden hydrogels and a biodegradable polymer to bioprint a viable anisotropic cartilage constructs. In-vitro and in-vivo studies were demonstrated to show tissue maturation and organization, which may be sufficient for translation to patients. The third article explores a novel resin 3D printing technology which continously fabricates a 3D structure with a single droplet of resin via the control of its three phase contact line (TCL).
