As a trusted 3D bioprinting biotech company, CD BioSciences' experienced team of experts can offer you various types of in vitro model building services based on the high-resolution 3Dmicroflu™ technology platform covering all aspects of life science research. Here, the advantages and applications of 3Dmicroflu™ technology platform in the construction of cartilage micro models are demonstrated in the following section.
Cartilage is composed of chondrocytes and intercellular matrix. Compared to normal and hard bone, the matrix within cartilage is gelatinous and has greater toughness. Cartilage is a connective tissue that is primarily supportive and is mainly found around the joints and spine within the body. It is classified as elastic cartilage, hyaline cartilage and fibrocartilage.
Cartilage is a small part of human skeleton but widely distributed, and it is indispensable for every joint connection. Its important role in weight-bearing and reducing friction between bones is important for the normal conduct of life activities. Once cartilage problems occur, they can lead to related diseases such as arthritis and chondromalacia.
Cartilage is essential for the support and protection of the bones. When cartilage is injured or diseased it can directly affect the body's motor function. Therefore, it is important to study the diseases affected by cartilage as well as artificial cartilage repair by establishing an in vitro cartilage model. Here, CD BioSciences can provide you with a 3D printing technology platform called 3Dmicroflu™, which can be used for the construction of high-resolution cartilage micro-models in vitro. Depending on the flexibility and scalability of 3Dmicroflu™ technology platform, different designs can be implemented to meet the project requirements. In addition, experienced experts from CD BioSciences can participate in your micro model building process to provide you with experience and advice.
