Three predictions about the future of bioprinting

We know that no one eats, sleeps and breathes bioprinting like CELLINK does. Since we’re constantly developing new capabilities for the scientists we support, we’re always following industry trends and researching what will be the next big thing in the field.

We’ve summed up our top three bioprinting predictions below!

Our predictions for the future

The future of bioprinting is generally bright. We believe there’ll be continued development in both facets of this exciting biotechnology. There will be continued improvement and understanding of biology and biomaterials, and bioprinters will become more user-friendly to enable more researchers to leverage the technology.

1. More options will be enabled in materials and blended material applications

Technologies like AI are helping us determine the right combinations of biomaterials for turning scaffolds into tissue. To keep up with advancing theories, we predict that vendors will prioritize material development as well as bioprinting systems with more printheads to support using more bioinks on a single print.

2. Continued enhancements will be made to optimize software

Even the best designed hardware can’t succeed without great software. CELLINK was one of the first companies to provide features like remote monitoring and cloud-based software, and we think that enabling more materials and capabilities will underscore the need for software that’s refreshed, intuitive and designed with the user in mind.

3. More business sectors will adopt bioprinting solutions

Already, government space agencies and bioprinting companies have collaborated to test and validate tissue model performance in the harshest environment known to man. As rugged studies continue returning with positive results, it will be even easier for new business sectors to get started with leveraging bioprinting capabilities in their market.
