We use our unique technology and expertise within medical 3D printing to provide porous ceramic 3D structures for bone research and reconstruction.
P3D Research Line ― P3D Scaffolds
Tissue scaffolds are cell growth support structures composed of biocompatible materials for cell attachment which are widely used in research areas such as tissue engineering, guided tissue generation, regenerative medicine, and stem- and cancer cell research.
Our uniquely lifelike bone environments present an ideal solution for studying bone disease mechanisms or test new treatments by applying new drug or cell therapy candidates to the cellularized structures.
Bring natural bone environments to the lab
Enhance your research with:
- Porous β-TCP bone-like 3D structure
- Directly translate your research from in-vitro to in-vivo
- Realistic setting for testing of therapies and disease models
Contact us if you want to know more about our specially designed solid support matrices.
Particle3D is founded upon a widely applicable and IP protected technology that has the potential to be applied to many areas and industries beyond medicine — including the automotive, chemical, agricultural and aerospace industries.
As the powder particles can be derived from any material, the technology has many potential usages, including for the creation of:
- Metal powders for circuitry, electronics and metallic spare parts.
- Proteins, carbohydrates and pharmaceutics for agricultural and medical use.
- Graphite and other powders containing inorganic solid carbon for highly customized aerospace use.

P3D Bone is a 3D printed patient-fitted bone implant based on the patient’s own CT/MR scan.
The fully customized implant enables simple and short procedure times, low risk of post-surgical complications and secures optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.
Our implants are made from a degradable bio-ink of tricalcium phosphate and fatty acids which are natural bodily components. This allows implants to remodel over time and become natural living bone.
The implants’ bone-like internal porosities and cavities allow for the creation of channels for blood vessels and nerves within the implants. These channels are critical for bone regeneration and result in a strong ingrowth of bone and fast recovery.
P3D Bone with Additives
Our P3D Bone can be designed to deliver a range of additives such as growth factors,antibiotics and chemotherapy with wide ranging benefits for patients.
The 3D printed bone implant can release one or more additives over a pro-longed period of time as the resorption speed and drug release rate can be controlled by varying the fatty acid tail length.
This allows for a local long-term controlled drug release and thereby a more effective way of dosing medication which reduces the amount of the drug needed. This helps contain costs, reduces the development of resistant bacteria and benefits patients, as lower doses are less harmful to the liver
and kidneys that metabolize the drug.
