The Z-Corp Spectrum Z 510 is a powder-based 3-D printer. It features a typical X-Y axis but includes two Z axe. The Z bed to the left is full of powder which serves as source material for the print. Powder from this area is rolled onto the second Z printing bed area in even and […]
This 3D printable hot water jacket provide precise control over media temperature, enabling media to remain liquid without cooking embedded cells. Printed on an Objet in standard materials, the jacket can withstand temperatures up to 60C. It is printed in two pieces and epoxied together, metal or nylon hose barbs can be threaded into the […]
Syringe Printing with Plant Cells
While software rarely catches the headlines in bioprinting, it is the key to creating 3D models and processing these files to direct the 3D printing hardware. Today there is a variety of powerful 3D CAD platforms available for users. However, the software needs of bioprinting are unique enough that new or modified software is often required. This page is a […]

Bacteriology. a liquid or solidifiednutrient material suitable for the cultivation of microorganisms. A growth medium or culture medium is a solid or liquid designed to support the growth of microorganisms or cells, or […]
Two weeks ago, we tuned into our bacteria cultures to observe what was happening. Upon looking at the few we had begun using, s. Pasturii was the bacteria strain that was yielding the most promising calcification. Looking in on the s. Pasturii samples a week later, in both the Jove and Malta media, we can […]
BUGSS Lab Notes – 8/1/16 Analysis of Prints from the Previous Lab Session: Our tests on 7/20/16 showed that increasing print time enabled us to print smaller posts. Increasing print time to 10 sec/layer allowed us to print posts down to 150µm x 150µm in the x&y. Looking at these prints under the microscope to determine the […]
We are excited to begin sharing our work. We will use posts as open lab notes. As such, the information found in our posts will typically be contingent and incomplete. This is a trade-off for getting the latest information that is relatively real-time and unfiltered.
