Researchers Develop Dual Syringe 3D Printer Head for Bioprinting Polymers

LIFIA, a research centre of the National University of La Plata in Argentina, has created a 3D printer head that can control two syringes simultaneously, allowing doctors to print biopolymers with specific geometric forms and combine them in novel ways. Developed in conjunction with Dr. Guillermo R. Castro of CONICET and the Center for Research and Development in Industrial Fermentation (CINDEFI), the project is the first of its kind, and has won a contest organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology of Argentina (MinCyT), from which it received financial assistance to be developed.
