MeaTech Files Provisional Patent Application for Novel Bioprinting Method
Israeli food tech company MeaTech has filed a provisional patent application to the United States Patent Office (USPTO) for a novel bioprinting method that it believes has the potential to provide “exceptional control” of multi-layered bioink printing. MeaTech’s technology reportedly allows for significant control of the droplet size, volume and placement onto a sacrificial substrate layer during in-situ inkjet 3D printing, and could allow for highly advantageous bioprinting resolutions in its meat-emulating products.
