3D printing outclasses glass

Reactionware revolution continues with nanoparticle flow reactor

A UK team has demonstrated the power of 3D printing in producing complex labware for about the same cost as a paperback book.

The inaugural study to come from Victor Sans’ group at the University of Nottingham, UK, is a proof of concept. In it they designed, manufactured and optimised a cheap yet complex flow reactor for a model system – silver nanoparticle synthesis.
