The BioBot 1 is a desktop bioprinter that builds 3D tissues from cells. It has a dual extruder system that uses visible blue light to cure biomaterials without harming cells, and it has 100 um resolution.
In conjunction with the NIH Research Festival, the Library’s open house will showcase why we truly are “Your Partner in Research.” New this year will be a demonstration of the data visualization touch screen provided by the NIH Office of the Associate Director for Data Science.
Through the NIH Library’s Technology Sandbox, a 2014 trial of 3D printers exposed NIH staff to cutting edge technology for work and research. The pilot was so successful that the Library is now permanently offering free 3D printing services.
