Facilities 2

The Surgical Skills Laboratory

The Surgical Skills Laboratory

The laboratory is fully equipped for dry bone workshops. The space is designed to enable groups to acquire skills with a range of technologies that simulate the feel of a real operating theatre. Instruments are also available to test both the position and orientation of any procedure, and the mechanical strength of the construct

3D printer facility

3D Printing

The MSK Lab has an EOS P110 Formiga SLS (selective laser sintering) 3D Printer. This process sinters powdered nylon-12 (PA 2200) to produce 3D objects.

Primarily used to manufacture patient specific guides and single use instruments for orthopaedic surgery, parts manufactured on this machine are highly accurate, flexible and strong.

The machine has a build volume of 200 mm x 250 mm x 330 mm, a resolution of 0.1mm and on average takes 24 hours for a full height build.

Parts can be printed on the printer for a fee. For further details please contact:
