Read or download book entitled Biofabrication written by Gabor Forgacs which was release on 18 March 2013, this book published by William Andrew. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: Biofabrication is a practical guide to the novel, inherently cross-disciplinary scientific field that focuses on biomanufacturing processes and a related range of emerging technologies. These processes and technologies ultimately further the development of products that may involve living (cells and/or tissues) and nonliving (bio-supportive proteins, scaffolds) components. The book introduces readers to cell printing, patterning, assembling, 3D scaffold fabrication, cell/tissue-on-chips as a coherent micro-/nano-fabrication toolkit. Real-world examples illustrate how to apply biofabrication techniques in areas such as regenerative medicine, pharmaceuticals and tissue engineering. In addition to being a vital reference for scientists, engineers and technicians seeking to apply biofabrication techniques, this book also provides an insight into future developments in the field, and potential new applications. Discover the multi-disciplinary toolkit provided by biofabrication and apply it to develop new products, techniques and therapies Covers a range of important emerging technologies in a coherent manner: cell printing, patterning, assembling, 3D scaffold fabrication, cell/tissue-on-chips... Readers develop the ability to apply biofabrication technologies through practical examples

Summary : Biomaterials have advanced from merely interacting with the body to controlling biological processes toward the goal of tissue regeneration. In order to reconstitute a new tissue or repair a damaged/diseased tissue, three components are critical for regenerative medicine or tissue engineering: cells, biomaterials as scaffold substrates, and growth factors. ...

Summary : Laser-assisted bioprinting (LAB) is an emerging technology in the field of tissue engineering. Its physical mechanism makes it possible to print cells and liquid materials with a cell-level resolution. By giving tissue engineers control over cell density and organization of 3D tissue constructs, LAB holds much promise for fabricating living ...

Summary : Scaffold-free tissue engineering approaches take advantage of cell–cell interactions, specifically the phenomena of self-assembly and self-sorting. By using micro-molded nonadhesive hydrogels, mono-dispersed cells can be seeded and directed to form spheroids as well as more complex shapes. These complex structures, including toroids, honeycombs, and loop-ended dogbones, bypass the critical ...

Summary : This is the first book about the “Kenzan” method for scaffold-free biofabrication, which does not rely on biomaterials as scaffolds to ensure correct multicellular spheroid positioning for building three dimensional construct only made from cells. The book explains the basic principles and concepts of the microneedle-based (“Kenzan”) method of building ...
