Plasma-assisted Bio-extrusion System (PBS System) is an innovative hybrid bio-manufacturing system to produce complex multi-material and functionally graded scaffolds combining multiple pressure-assisted and screw-assisted printing heads and plasma jets. This approach, which represents a step forward regarding the current state of the art technology in the field of biomanufacturing, enables to design and fabricate more effective scaffolds matching the mechanical and surface characteristics of… Expand
