3D Printing Allows Fabrication of Cancer Research Probes

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Researchers at NYU Abu Dhabi have used a 3D printer to create a functional, integrated and inexpensive microfluidic probe (MFP). Typically made of glass or silicon, MFPs are tiny scientific tools used to study, process, and manipulate live cell cultures in a controlled environment. However, they cannot be easily produced on demand, and are expensive to make in large quantities. The researchers fabricated their probes in a single step using stereolithographic 3D printing, and benchmarked the performance of the 3D-printed probes against standard MFPs. Their research suggests that 3D printers...Read full article
