Bioprinted cancer models using de-cellularized tumors

Faithfully replicating the tumor microenvironemnt is critical for understaning cancer development. In our new application note Human de-cellularized tumors as bioprinting scaffolds, we use Fluicell’s Biopixlar platform to position cells directly onto human-derived breast cancer tumors, without the use of any aditional biomaterias. This creates a powerful cancer research model that closely mimics the structural and biological complexity of actual tumors.

This novel approach to producing tumor models unlocks the possibility for complex studies on cell and tumor microenvironment, cell and immune cell interactions, cancer cell invasion, and drug toxicity.
