Dr. Hanna Hartmann, NMI in Reutlingen, and Prof. Dr. Jürgen Groll, University Hospital Würzburg, are co-chairing the new VDI Bioprinting Guidelines Committee. The aim is to clarify basic definitions and terminologies in bioprinting, as well as the examination of device requirements, processes and bioinks. Equally important is the explanation of basic physicochemical and biological requirements. Dr Hartmann explains why standards and norms are important: "They help to deliver reproducible results independent of people and places".
