Fees: 400€


'Printable biotechnology‘

is a cutting edge technology that prepares the technical implementation of various achievements in biotechnology to broaden application via printing methods. By means of printing biotechnological processes, sensor systems, diagnostic kits, cell-free as well as cell-containing reaction sytems onto and within various structures and surfaces, several novel products will be realised in small scale for bulk production.

‚Printable Biotechnology‘ is not a single technology but a conglomerate of various approches that comprise the integration of active biomolecules into diverse structures and materials.

The focus of this workshop lies on two aspects: First, we teach several techniques that can be used to modify surfaces and surface properties. Second, we will focus on the manufacturing of spatial constructs and spatially strucutured objects by three dimensional printing.
