Microfabrica also makes minuscule surgical instruments, including biopsy forceps less than one millimeter in diameter and a tissue scaffold with linkages that allow it to expand with cell growth. Carol Livermore, a mechanical and industrial engineering professor at Northeastern University, calls Microfabrica’s capabilities impressive. “I am not aware of any kind of high-end 3-D printing that exceeds that performance,” she says.
