3D printing laboratory

The 3D printing laboratory includes several 3D printers oriented in the development of medical devices. It notably includes the BioX bioprinter (CellInk), enabling a new approach to tissue engineering and the manufacture of drugs. It also includes the FFF P220 printer (APIUM), allowing printing with PEEK polymer.  

 

These devices, at the cutting edge of technology, are operated by members of the laboratory whose expertise focuses on the development of medical devices by developing new materials. It is possible to have access to these devices by contacting us
