STAINING FROM OUR BIOPRINTED HAIRFOLLICLE

CELLBASED FUR AND WOOL 

“BIOPRINTED” FUR



Join us on our fascinating journey to improve fur and wool farming.
We’ve started our -self funded- (ad-) venture in late 2017 with the idea to use our IP on how to grow and scale human hairfollicles inseparable attached to surrounding „tissues“ and translate these methods to laboratory grown biomaterials such as fur and wool.

HOW TO „BIOPRINT“ FUR

Here we display some images of various prototypes, including SEM and confocal images of stainings, obtained whilst the proof of concept phase. We can’t help but recognizing the art like beauty of nature [with a slight tweak towards our direction].

CELLBASED WOOL

(Ovis Aries- Sheep)


Our hair, and that of any mammal, is surprisingly complex. No substitute (e.g., faux fur or faux wool) has been able to replicate fully the desirable material properties of hair, wool or fur. Largely this is because the advantages of wool (and other mammalian hairs) over synthetic and plant-based fibres are locked up in specific organised combinations of structure and proteins. Our approach is to use cutting-edge techniques in which multiple single stem cells are brought together in the right conditions so that they spontaneously grow into a three-dimensional miniature tissue (called an organoid), in this case a wool follicle.
