A new device for building large tissues from living components of three-dimensional microtissues borrows on ideas from electronics manufacturing. The Bio-Pick, Place, and Perfuse (BioP3) is a step toward someday making whole organs. A new grant from the National Science Foundation will allow for major improvements including automation.
The BioP3 technology was developed by a team including researchers at Brown University bioengineer, Rhode Island Hospital and the Warren Alpert Medical School. The team introduced BioP3 in a new paper titled “Bio-Pick, Place, and Perfuse: A New Instrument for 3D Tissue Engineering,” published in the journal Tissue Engineering Part [...]
