Allevi releases new software for step-by-step bioprinting
Allevi was founded a little over five years ago in Philadelphia with a mission to make it easier to design and engineer 3D tissues. The team created their first desktop 3D bioprinter to be versatile, powerful and easy-to-use, a solution for many labs seeking to be part of the biofabrication revolution. Today, the startup creates a number of building tools to design and engineer with life, they offer 3D bioprinters, bioinks and software. Speaking of software, they also just released a new solution, the Allevi BioPrint Pro software.
This software is a step-by-step formula for bioprinting. In other words, the solution runs entirely online, which means that you can work from any computer around the world to create your designs, define your materials and monitor your prints. Additionally, it contains a project-based workflow, built-in model generation and integrated slicing. Finally, they also provide an interface and cutting-edge visualization features to enable users to see and fix potential issues in their projects before printing.
Bioprinting, the future of tailor-made medicine?
“Since our humble beginnings, we have grown to serve hundreds of labs in all corners of the world and have become leaders in the biofabrication revolution. We are constantly inspired by our community of users who are performing world-class research on our platform. When your work has life-changing implications for people all over the world, it’s an amazing responsibility” you can read on the website.
It is true that recent advancements in bioprinting point to the technology having a profound impact on the medical world. It is now clear that the future of medicine is tailor-made solutions for every patient. Thanks to software where you can design a personalised model, it is only a question of time before viable solutions enter the market. In terms of milestones, the bioprinting of a tiny human heart a few months ago was a major breakthrough. Now it is a question of developing the technology further, the materials and applications.
Allevi counts 4 bioprinters, the Allevi 1, 2, 3 and 6 – the name reflects the number of extruders on the printer, bioinks for different applications and software. You can find more information HERE.
