[Webinar]: Microfluidic 3D bioprinting and functional characterization of a contractile smooth muscle tissue model

Microfluidic 3D bioprinting allows you to create complex tissue structures that mimic biological function.

In the first installment of our webinar series, Spiro Getsios, PhD, VP of Tissue Engineering at Aspect Biosystems, highlights:

  • Key features and core concepts of our microfluidic 3D bioprinting platform
  • Bioink and design considerations for creating functional tissue
  • How these concepts have been applied in developing a bioprinted contractile smooth muscle model
