Biolinker: world's first biofilm 3D printer made entirely from K'nex

A group of nine TU Delft students participating in the upcoming iGem Synthetic Biology Competition have built the first 3D printer capable of creating customizable and reproducible bacterial biofilm, and they’ve made it almost entirely out of the children’s toy K’nex. This development could allow scientists to more effectively study the disease-causing bacteria and devise better methods for removing it. 3Ders.org spoke with Hector Sanguesa Ferrer, one of the […]
