Retrofitting a stereolithography system within a laminar flow hood

Mahesh Pandurang Tonde, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

This research focused on retrofitting the stereolithography (SL), a rapid prototyping technology, inside a laminar flow hood to provide an aseptic, particulate-free environment for scaffold fabrication. Two of the important objectives of this project were to retrofit the commercial SLA 250/30 inside a laminar flow hood to demonstrate that the manufacturability of the Bio-SL system was comparable to original SLA 250 system and to conduct the sterility test on fabricated scaffolds to show that the laminar flow hood was able to provide an aseptic, particulate-free environment for the fabrication.^
