Allevi Joins Johnson&Johnson's JPOD Philadelphia Community

As new applications continue to be developed within the Allevi community, we feel the responsibility to join larger ecosystems that connect us with more engineers, scientists, and physicians that can benefit from the power of Allevi’s solutions. Our first successful relationship with a broader ecosystem has been with VWR. They continue to help us introduce our platform to accelerate science around the world. Adding geometry to biology is becoming a standard to be able to generate accurate representations of the body outside the body. 

At Allevi, we are now ready to begin to understand how to translate our communities’ scientific discoveries into the breakthroughs of tomorrow. To do this we realize that we need to co-create solutions with those at the front lines who are bringing new drugs to market, fighting diseases at the bedside, and producing novel solutions for the healthcare system.

Therefore, we are excited to join the Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JLABS JPOD @ Philadelphia community. We believe access to this ecosystem helps us connect with those who understand how Allevi’s applications can serve the healthcare industry. These interactions will guide our community today and in the future. Together we can target healthcare’s biggest needs by creating more accurate, predictable 3D biology models.

As we continue to collaborate with the Johnson & Johnson Innovation community, we will look forward to receiving mentorship, brainstorming with great minds in the industry, and continuing to grow Allevi. It takes a village to raise a company and we are happy to have the JLABS village help us reach new heights.

Allevi Now Available Through VWR

Here at Allevi, we are constantly working to make our bioprinters and bioinks accessible to scientists worldwide.  Our mission is to get Allevi 3D bioprinters into the best research labs where they can accelerate the pace of discovery and push the boundaries of biology. That's why today we're excited to announce that you can now shop Allevi products on the world's leading life science equipment distributor; VWR International. 

Now it’s easier than ever to get an Allevi bioprinter into your lab and begin changing the world. Join us.

Allevi Bioprinting in Space

The physical exploration of space began in the 1950s with the race between the Soviet Union and the United States for who could take those weightless first steps.  Orbiting above earth, astronauts have since made countless discoveries of the galaxy we live in and the science of the stars. On top of the celestial research, space exploration has yielded humanity practical tools that improve our daily lives, such as the GPS in your car, the ear thermometer in your medicine cabinet, and the joystick on your gaming console. Without the constraints of gravity, astronauts are able to study and innovate in a truly novel way.

As we continue to explore deeper into space, astronauts are spending more time in orbit than ever before and need tools that are adaptable and customizable for any given task. This is the ethos behind Made in Space, an organization that focuses on increasing human capability in orbit by bringing 3d printing technology onto the International Space Station (ISS). Accessibility to 3D printing on the ISS has allowed astronauts to print custom plastic tools and parts that are needed to successfully achieve their mission. No need to come back to earth to fetch that tool, you can now print it at zero g.

Here at Allevi, we are driven by the goal of being able to 3D bioprint replacement organs for humans. While we continue to understand the capabilities and constraints of 3d biofabrication here on Earth, the ability to explore cellular function in space could afford us novel discoveries of organ form and function that have never before been studied.

In pursuit of this novel research, we have partnered with Made in Space to develop the first bioprinter in space; the Allevi ZeroG. We have designed a compatible extruder that can be outfitted onto Made In Space’s existing Additive Manufacturing Facility on the ISS. The ZeroG bio-extruder will allow scientists on the Allevi platform to simultaneously run experiments both on the ground and in space to observe biological differences that occur with and without gravity.

We are excited to continue to revolutionize how we study biology, not only on the ground but now in space. And perhaps one day, the Allevi ZeroG will aid astronauts in 3D bioprinting replacement organs for deep space travel. We’re excited to participate in this next generation space race.
