  • 3D printing complex lattice structures for permeable liver phantom
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 June 2018Source: BioprintingAuthor(s): Linda Low, Sherif Ramadan, Catherine Coolens, Hani E. Naguib Liver cancer is currently the third deadliest cancer in the world, affecting over 700,000 people per year. To improve early detection of tumours, perfusion testing is used for imaging of blood flow in the liver. Creating a phantom to accurately mimic the liver in imaging techniques such as Dynamic Contrast-enhanced (DCE) computed tomography (CT) will improve testing and calibration of different imaging protocols and pharmacokinetic perfusion models. In current literature, there lacks a permeable, easily producible and reusable liver phantom for dynamic contrast-enhanced CT perfusion testing. This study details the production of phantoms with controllable permeability for standardization in hepatic perfusion using commercially available 3D printing methods. Phantoms with hexagonal channels were designed in nTopology Element and printed in materials with a density of 0.9–1.5 g/cm3. Polylactic acid was selected for fused deposition modelling (FDM), while proprietary resins were used for an inkjet printing process called MultiJet Printing (MJP). Permeability tests were performed on samples to observe flow rates obeying Darcy's Law. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to analyze pore size in FDM and MJP samples, while micro-CT scans were performed to analyze pore interconnectivity. The collected permeability data exceeds reported literature values of 0.0167 mL s−1 cm2 and approach the desired range of 0.15–0.3 mL s−1 cm2. Micro-CT scans show obstructions from the MJP printing process. SEM images were analyzed in Fiji and showed varying results for FDM printing. Future work will involve reducing pore size while maintaining high permeability. Using 3D printing in phantom development will help create adaptable, reliable and permeable phantoms for diagnostic imaging.
  • 3D printing of methylcellulose-based hydrogels
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 May 2018Source: BioprintingAuthor(s): Nicola Contessi Negrini, Lorenzo Bonetti, Luca Contili, Silvia Farè Methylcellulose-based (MC) hydrogels are optimal substrates to obtain cell sheets for regenerative medicine applications. However, current MC-based hydrogel preparation methods only allow for the obtainment of MC substrates with standardized and simple geometries (i.e., geometry of the container where the hydrogel is produced). Here, we propose the 3D printing of a MC-based hydrogel to obtain substrates with desired and controlled geometries. First, we optimize the printing temperature (i.e., T = 21 °C) of the MC-based hydrogel, so to obtain printed strands reproducing the designed geometry without defects. We investigate the influence of the printing parameters (i.e., needle size, deposition speed and extrusion multiplier) on the printed strands diameters and printing accuracy. A decrease in the sol-gel transition temperature was evidenced, together with an increase in water uptake at 37 °C, for printed MC-based hydrogels compared to not printed samples; the stability at 37 °C and achieved rheological properties were suitable for cell sheet engineering applications. In addition, cell viability higher than 90% was detected after embedding cells in the MC-based hydrogel; moreover, the optimized printing parameters allowed to bioprint C2C12 cells embedded in the MC-based hydrogel with a viability higher than 80%. The printing parameters we optimized could be used to produce MC substrates for cell sheet engineering or cell delivery applications with controlled and complex-shaped geometries.Graphical abstractfx1
  • 3D Bioprinting – Flow Cytometry as Analytical Strategy for 3D Cell
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 April 2018Source: BioprintingAuthor(s): Sarah Gretzinger, Nicole Beckert, Andrew Gleadall, Cornelia Lee-Thedieck, Jürgen Hubbuch The importance of 3D printing technologies increased significantly over the recent years. They are considered to have a huge impact in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, since 3D bioprinting enables the production of cell-laden 3D scaffolds. Transition from academic research to pharmaceutical industry or clinical applications, however, is highly dependent on developing a robust and well-known process, while maintaining critical cell characteristics. Hence, a directed and systematic approach to 3D bioprinting process development is required, which also allows for the monitoring of these cell characteristics. This work presents the development of a flow cytometry-based analytical strategy as a tool for 3D bioprinting research.The development was based on a model process using a commercially available alginate-based bioink, the β-cell line INS-1E, and direct dispensing as 3D bioprinting method. We demonstrated that this set-up enabled viability and proliferation analysis. Additionally, use of an automated sampler facilitated high-throughput screenings. Finally, we showed that each process step, e.g. suspension of cells in bioink or 3D printing, cross-linking of the alginate scaffold after printing, has a crucial impact on INS-1E viability. This reflects the importance of process optimisation in 3D bioprinting and the usefulness of the flow cytometry-based analytical strategy described here. The presented strategy has a great potential as a cell characterisation tool for 3D bioprinting and may contribute to a more directed process development.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
  • 3D Bioprinting of stimuli-responsive polymers synthesised from DE-ATRP
           into soft tissue replicas
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 March 2018Source: BioprintingAuthor(s): Ahmed Aied, Wenhui Song, Wenxin Wang, Abdulrahman Baki, A. Sigen Synthetic polymers possess more reproducible physical and chemical properties than their naturally occurring counterparts. They have also emerged as an important alternative for fabricating tissue substitutes because they can be molecularly tailored to have vast array of molecular weights, block structures, active functional groups, and mechanical properties. To this date however, there has been very few successful and fully functional synthetic tissue and organ substitutes and with the rapidly spreading 3D printing technology beginning to reshape the tissue engineering and regenerative field, the need for an effective, safe, and bio printable biomaterial is becoming more and more urgent. Here, we have developed a synthetic polymer from controlled living radical polymerisation that can be printed into well-defined structures. The polymer showed low cytotoxicity before and after printing. Additionally, the incorporation of gelatine-methacrylate coated PLGA microparticles within the hydrogel provided cell adhesion surfaces for cell proliferation. The results point to possible application of the microparticle seeded, synthetic hydrogel as a direct printable tissue or organ substitute.
  • Laser-based fabrication of 3D hydrogel constructs using bessel beams
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 6 March 2018Source: BioprintingAuthor(s): Wen Loong Andy Liew, Yilei Zhang, (family name underlined) Bioprinting has shown great promise for applications in the field of tissue engineering. However, the printing techniques existing today suffer from several drawbacks including long processing time, poor printing fidelity for high aspect ratio constructs, and poor cytocompatibility. In this report, we describe a laser-based bioprinting technique and demonstrate its ability to address these drawbacks. Unlike commercial Stereolithography systems, the laser used in our proposed technique is in the form of a Bessel Beam (BB) which possesses unique characteristics suitable for bioprinting applications. We demonstrate the successful fabrication of hydrogel fibers with controlled diameter, along with the encapsulation of highly viable cells. We also demonstrate the high throughput fabrication of fluorescent bead-laden tubular constructs with high fidelity and customizable cross-sections. Finally, 3D hydrogel scaffolds made of both synthetic and naturally-derived polymers were fabricated. We believe that our proposed technique could find significant applications in the field of tissue engineering for regenerative medicine and also for in vitro tissue studies.
  • A perspective on the physical, mechanical and biological specifications of
           bioinks and the development of functional tissues in 3D bioprinting
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Bioprinting, Volume 9Author(s): David Williams, Patrick Thayer, Hector Martinez, Erik Gatenholm, Ali Khademhosseini Bioinks are the basic building blocks for the fabrication of 3D bioprinted constructs. These bioinks play key roles in structural support, adhesion, and differentiation of incorporated cells. Due to diversity of tissue types found in the body, and the need to recapitulate many of the structural and functional characteristics of a target tissue, there are many potential bioinks, but relatively few at the moment possess optimal properties. Bioinks may be classified on the basis on their ultimate role in a 3D bioprinted construct such as imparting biological functionality, serving as sacrificial material, or supporting and providing rigidity to complex constructs. Physical, mechanical and biological characteristics must all be taken into account in the design and composition of bioinks. The incorporation of guidance cues such as topography, growth factors, and morphogens is necessary to control cell fate. These 3D bioprinted constructs should be integrated into bioreactor systems, to support tissue development. Finally, the methodologies to non-destructively monitor both deposited bioinks and construct maturation are necessary for the successful development of a functional tissue.
  • Generating vascular channels within hydrogel constructs using an
           economical open-source 3D bioprinter and thermoreversible gels
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Bioprinting, Volume 9Author(s): Ross EB Fitzsimmons, Mark S. Aquilino, Jasmine Quigley, Oleg Chebotarev, Farhang Tarlan, Craig A. Simmons The advent of 3D bioprinting offers new opportunities to create complex vascular structures within engineered tissues. However, the most suitable sacrificial material for producing branching vascular conduits within hydrogel-based constructs has not yet been resolved. Here, we assess two leading contenders, gelatin and Pluronic F-127, for a number of characteristics relevant to their use as sacrificial materials (printed filament diameter and its variability, toxicity, rheological properties, and compressive moduli). To aid in our assessment and help accelerate the adoption of 3D bioprinting by the biomedical field, we custom-built an inexpensive (
  • 3D bioprinting of liver-mimetic construct with alginate/cellulose
           nanocrystal hybrid bioink
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Bioprinting, Volume 9Author(s): Yun Wu, Zhi Yuan (William) Lin, Andrew C. Wenger, Kam C. Tam, Xiaowu (Shirley) Tang 3D bioprinting is a novel platform for engineering complex, three-dimensional (3D) tissues that mimic real ones. The development of hybrid bioinks is a viable strategy that integrates the desirable properties of the constituents. In this work, we present a hybrid bioink composed of alginate and cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) and explore its suitability for extrusion-based bioprinting. This bioink possesses excellent shear-thinning property, can be easily extruded through the nozzle, and provides good initial shape fidelity. It has been demonstrated that the viscosities during extrusion were at least two orders of magnitude lower than those at small shear rates, enabling the bioinks to be extruded through the nozzle (100 µm inner diameter) readily without clogging. This bioink was then used to print a liver-mimetic honeycomb 3D structure containing fibroblast and hepatoma cells. The structures were crosslinked with CaCl2 and incubated and cultured for 3 days. It was found that the bioprinting process resulted in minimal cell damage making the alginate/CNC hybrid bioink an attractive bioprinting material.Graphical abstractfx1
