Medical adhesives for 3D printing

Conference Dates

June 5-9, 2017


Medical adhesives are high importance group of materials in regenerative medicine, since they provide straightforward and non-invasive fixation of structures and surface bonding. 3D bioprinting, a powerful technique allowing material deposition with precise spatial control (up to micrometer range), seems a very interesting tool for glue placing. However, till now the reports on the well-printable medical adhesives or glues are missing. This can be assign to the fact, that requirements for bioink are complex, as proper physico-chemical properties (i.e. adhesiveness) and biocompatibility need to be combined with a good printability.
