Development of hybrid 3D-printed structure with aligned drug-loaded fibres using in-situ custom designed templates

Journal of Drug Delivery Science and Technology 2023 Volume 88, Article 104921

Fibre alignment technology is crucial in various emerging applications, such as drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, and scaffold fabrication. However, conventional methods have limitations when it comes to incorporating aligned fibres into 3D printed structures in situ. This research demonstrates the use of custom-designed templates made with conductive ink to control the alignment of drug-loaded polymer fibres on a 3D printed microscale structure. Three different geometries were designed, and the effects of the template on fibre diameter and pattern were investigated. The hybrid structure demonstrated successful control of aligned fibres on printed structures using grounded conductive ink geometric electrodes, as…
