Containing 3D Printers in Modified Biosafety Cabinets

Keep 3D printer workflows for tissue and cell culture contaminant free.




Three-dimensional (3D) printing is gaining popularity for tissue and cell culture applications. Traditional petri dish and multi-well plate cultures are housed in biosafety cabinets (BSCs) to eliminate unwanted organisms within the working environment. However, 3D printing apparatuses were not originally designed with BSCs in mind. New containment solutions help researchers attain contaminant-free culture environments while protecting operators from potentially biohazardous bio-inks.
