Blog - Bio-Assembling in 3D with Magnetic Levitation

Blog - Bio-Assembling in 3D with Magnetic Levitation: The secret ingredient is a proprietary mix of nanoparticles the company calls Nanoshuttle. The addition of these particles to a dish of living cells allows them to move in response to magnetic fields that can be varied in three dimensions and across time.

According to an abstract on the work from the just-concluded meeting of the Tissue Engineering International & Regenerative Medicine Society, they've managed to tune this effect until it can create a "BioAssembler" that "leads to rapid formation of levitated 3D cell cultures."
