The sustainable future of health and well-being
In response to fast-spreading communicable diseases and a growing gap in access to healthcare, there is a strong desire to develop sustainable solutions that can improve our global health and well-being. We are working in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals to contribute to creating a sustainable future for health.
The Sustainable Tissue Engineering Program is a concerted effort by our R&D scientists to adopt the principles of the 3Rs (replacement, reduction and refinement) and embrace more humane strategies that minimize the need for animal research, such as improving the accuracy and relevance of alternative disease models.
We are committed to developing products that help researchers improve health and well-being. Our sustainability symbol, which you will find on many of our products, includes an embedded QR code so users can learn how our products are making an impact in the field.
As we continue to innovate and provide new solutions to researchers across the world, we want to ensure that we make it easy to responsibly recycle older devices. To that end, we have created the Responsible Return Program, which rewards customers who return their bioprinters for responsible refurbishing or recycling. Refurbished bioprinters are then used to further democratize the field by making technologies more accessible to labs around the world.
