3D Bioprinting Skin Tissue Models Using Primary Cells

This application note demonstrates that a structurally complex and physically relevant in vitro skin model could be created using the BIO X 3D bioprinter, validating the suitability of the technology for tissue engineering. The fullthickness skin 3D model was bioprinted using primary dermal fibroblasts embedded in GelXA SKIN bioink and keratinocytes embedded in ColMA. The bioprinted construct was cultured for a total of 14 days, at which point a robust skin tissue equivalent was observed.
