Your preferred 3D bioprinting development partner
The Translational Research Initiative for Cell Engineering and Printing - TRICEP - works with research institutions and industry to develop innovative technologies using 3D bioprinting.
TRICEP can commercialise opportunities in 3D bioprinting including printer manufacturing, biomaterials, bioinks, and material-cellular combinations to address significant industry challenges that require an exclusive, tailored solution.
TRICEP’s world leading research infrastructure can assist companies to bring to life novel technology from concept stage through to prototyping and manufacture of hardware and the formulation of customised bioinks, to accelerate product development and rapidly decrease time to market.
TRICEP is a 100% owned initiative of the University of Wollongong.
Collaborate, Create, Commercialise with TRICEP
We develop biomaterial formulations for research for consumer product testing and pharmaceutical development, and ensure your product is arranged in terms of structural and bioactive materials for optimal performance.
We utilise commercially available 3D bioprinting systems to design and develop customised technologies for the clinical challenge at hand.
We cultivate and optimise customised bioink formulations for regenerative medicine to deliver viable cells for the specific requirements of each novel hardware application and treatment. We are an ISO13485 qualified manufacturing partner for the supply of small to medium scale quantities of bioinks.
Our facility features a broad range of additive manufacturing technologies to process a range of commercially available polymer and metal materials, including carbon fibre nylon composites, titanium alloys, nickel and stainless steel.
Our hardware inventory includes:
Australia’s leading biofabricaiton/biomaterials capability to develop and synthesise novel biofabrication platforms (such as bioinks) with materials including hydrogels and melt polymers;
Multiple metal additive fabrication systems, including the highest resolution metal printer in Australia;
Fused deposition modelling systems with capability in polymer and composites;
Multiple inkjet technology systems allowing full colour 3D printing and biocompatible materials printing;
Broad range of additive manufacturing technologies to process a variety of commercially available polymer and metal materials, including carbon fibre nylon composites, titanium alloys, nickel and stainless steel.
