Bioprinter Community Project Night

Come join our ongoing BioPrinter community project!


Did you know you can print live cells from an inkjet printer?

Companies like Organovo are developing ways to 3D print human tissues and organs. We are currently working on an implementation of the BioPrinter using the innards of old CDROM Drives and Arduino electronics to print live cells using a reworked inkjet cartridge. So far we have successfully printed some glowing e. coli cells. We are working to improve our printer and experiment with printing yeast and plant cells.

Like to program or hack some hardware and apply it to biology? Join us on Thursday evenings.

    The printers were awesome. Can't wait to see the results of the plant project.

    Just went to my first Bio Salon last Saturday. Is this a free event or members only?

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
