Biofabrication is the science using additive manufacturing (AM) for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This field is undergoing a shift from fundamental to applied research, resulting in a rapidly growing market segment.

There are a lot of formulations described in literature. However, complicated or unreliable material feeds result in very low market penetration. Consequently, potentially breakthrough research is rarely transferred from bench to bedside.
