This week we mixed bacteria into a Pluronic gel and 3D printed with it.
Pluronic: a water soluble, thermal reversible substance. It solidifies at warmer tempertures, and melts at cooler temperatures. This powder is mixed with PBS (a classical chemical used in cell culture)
Slicer: the software used to deconstruct a 3D file type, in this case an STL, into layered g-code for 3D printing.
