The BioSpace facility is a biosafety level II culture room, specifically designed for primary cultures, cell line maintenance, and 3D Bioprinting. It is equipped with multiple BioIIA culture cabinetsCO2/O2 incubators, and CO2 incubators tailored for intricate experiments necessitating in-incubator instrumentation to foster optimal cell growth conditions. Additionally, the standard cell culture apparatus is readily available.

Researchers utilizing the facility benefit from the use of an inverted microscope and a stereo microscope, both equipped with epi-fluorescence capabilities.

The onsite 3D Bioprinter empowers the creation of diverse biomaterials, including polymers, abrasive viscous substances, cell-laden hydrogels, and solutions. This technology facilitates the assembly of sophisticated, multimaterial 3D scaffolds that mimic biological tissues more closely. These 3D structures have a variety of applications, such as 3D cell models for drug testing and scaffolds for regenerative medicine.
