About the Laboratory
3D Bioprinting Solutions is a Laboratory for Biotechnological Research founded by INVITRO, the largest private medical company in Russia. The laboratory develops and produces bioprinters and materials for 3D bioprinting, and also develops innovative technologies in the field of biofabrication. The official opening of 3D Bioprinting Solutions Laboratory took place on September 6, 2013.
The co-founders of the laboratory are one of the founders of the INVITRO company group, the Chairman of the Supervisory Council of the Laboratory for Biotechnological Research 3D Bioprinting Solutions, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the INVITRO company group Alexander Ostrovsky and the executive partner of 3D Bioprinting Solutions Yusef Hesuani.
Today the company has international partners, cooperates with the leading institutes in Russia as well as scientists of famous scientific centres abroad. For the work of the laboratory an international multi-disciplinary team of researchers, world-class scientists, engineers and management has been completely formed. Vladimir Mironov, one of the recognized pioneers of robotic biofabrication, Professor of the Department of Chemical and Life Science Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University (USA), has become the laboratory’s Head of Research.
In the summer of 2014 the first Russian bioprinter of an original construction and design was created; it was named Fabion. In addition to engineering solutions a unique software has also been developed. The bioprinter of 3D Bioprinting Solutions is one of the most multifunctional bioprinters in the world in terms of printing possibilities with different materials.
By the spring of 2015, the laboratory managed to print an organ construct of a mouse thyroid gland. The report on the achievement of the laboratory was presented by Vladimir Mironov on March 7, 2015, in the Brazil National Center of Metrology (INMETRO) located not far from Rio de Janeiro, and on March 13 of the same year the report was presented in the Renato Archer Center of Information Technologies (CTI) in Brazil.
