International Workshop on 3D Lithography and Bioprinting - 2023
Additive manufacturing enables you to make components with intricate characteristics with high precision, which is not possible with subtractive or other manufacturing processes. 3D printing and laser-assisted additive manufacturing techniques are being intensively used for patterning biomaterials in 2D or 3D organizations.
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is utilizing 3D bioprinting to overcome the lack of transplantable tissues and organs. Details of 3D bioprinting technology, such as BiocellX (an automated dispenser for spheroid and drug discovery) and Digital Light Processing, will be demonstrated as well as discussed by expert speakers. Hands-on training on CellInk's BioX 3D bioprinter will also be provided.
Laser lithography is another advanced technology that enables precise modification of polymers at submicron level to engineer functional constructs with high complexity and precision for various biomedical applications such as cell biology studies, drug delivery, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and pharmacology. In this talk, the gist of different biomedical applications of laser lithography will be discussed. A live demonstration from Nanocribe, Germany, as well as hands-on training on the nanolithography facility situated at the Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering, IIT Bombay, will be demonstrated to give an overview of the capability of the system.

3D Laser Lithography
Photonic Professional GT - Nanoscribe
Nanoscribe's Photonic Professional GT uses Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) to produce filigree structures of nearly any 3D shape by high-precision 3D printing: crystal lattices, porous scaffolds, naturally inspired patterns, smooth contours, sharp edges, undercuts and bridges are all manufacturable with high resolution.
3D Laser Lithography
Quantum X Shape - Nanoscribe
Based on Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP), the 3D laser lithography system combines proprietary 3D printing technologies that make it the optimal tool for rapid prototyping and wafer-scale batch processing of virtually any 2.5D and 3D shape with submicron precision and accuracy.
A compact nanoimprint tool that can be used for both imprinting and hot embossing. Supports masters and substrates up to 120 and 210 mm. Both versions support thermal imprint up to 250°C and UV imprint at 365 nm and/or 405 nm. Allows for replication of micro- and nanostructures from masters to substrates, both thermal replication and UV replication.
The BIO CELLX is a first of its kind biodispensing platform used to automate 3D cell culture. By providing cell biologists with pre-validated protocols, the BIO CELLX eliminates barriers for automating 3D cell-based assays that target cancer research and drug discovery.
BIO X is the next-generation bioprinter, bringing scientists closer to the future of medicine. Bioprinted tissue can be used in drug discovery where researchers can test new potential treatments and evaluate efficacy in very early stages. New drugs and treatments will potentially reach clinical trials faster with a decreased number of failures and reduced need for animal testing.
