3DPI Awards Categories
BCN3D has been nominated for two categories:
Desktop FFF 3D printer of the year
BCN3D Sigmax is already among the 8 best printers in the industry, and we couldn’t be happier. Sigmax R19 is our large professional desktop 3D printer and combines IDEX technology with a massive printing volume to deliver industrial-grade parts and increase production capacity.
Medical, dental, or healthcare application
BCN3D and a team from the University of Girona led by Dr. Teresa Puig joined forces on a research study that aimed at obtaining a device that would isolate those cells responsible for causing cancer relapses.
Five months ago the results were out, and they were one of the most important medical milestones in the research of triple-negative breast cancer, cancer that is within the most aggressive cancers and a high relapse rate. Using the BCN3D Sigma, the research team was able to manufacture three-dimensional scaffolds used to separate stem cells, responsible for causing relapses, in order to study them later to devise pharmaceuticals capable of eliminating them without affecting other cells and avoiding the occurrence of relapses in patients.
