Syringe Pump

We are a team of 4 people from Utah, USA. We creating a open source DIY syringe pump from commonly available and 3D printed parts that allows for high accuracy and repeatability. We also want to make this project as simple as possible so that no specialized skills are required.

The syringe pump that will be built will then be able to be integrated with almost any commonly available desktop 3D printer to create a bioprinter.

We would like to give credit to Kira Puscha, Thomas J.Hinton, and Adam W.Feinberg at Carnegie for their work on the Large volume syringe pump extruder for desktop 3D printers that served for the basis and inspiration for this project

Progress

Week 1:

  • Identified parts to order
  • Learned how to use Github (to an extent)

Week 2:

  • Got parts in
  • Started assembly of syringe pump

Week 3:

  • Finished assembly of syringe pump
  • Started Programing
  • Began troubleshooting

Week 4:

  • Continued programming
  • began working on the bioprinter
  • Printed Control Box

Week 5:

  • Calibration

  • Code Tweaks

Week 6:

  • Started Bioprinting
  • Failed at bioprinting
  • Almost finished the GitHub repository

Week 7:

  • Got some advice from Advanced BioMatrix
  • Ordered a different gelatin
  • Researched different "bioinks"
  • Tried to print with different materials (agarose, calcium phosphate, frosting), but none worked
