3D-printed microvalve for treating glaucoma

Posted on Updated on

According to Nanoscribe, “Scientists and engineers at the Fundación Markoptic in Culiacán, Mexico and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico City, have fabricated a novel device that could reduce the effects of glaucoma. They used Nanoscribe’s 3D printer to create a complex microvalve that is only 300 µm in diameter.”

Small Structures using Micro 3-D Printer. According to Michael Thiel, chief scientific officer at Nanoscribe, karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, ¨they developed a tabletop micro printer that can make complicated 3D microstructures more than 99%  times faster If something took one hour to make, it now takes less than one minute.¨
