Nature.com: 3d printing tech creates custom labware

“‘Smart’ containers can be customized to drive chemical reactions.”

“Armed with a three-dimensional (3D) printer and the type of silicone-based sealant typically used for bathrooms, researchers have demonstrated a novel way to control chemical reactions: by making the reaction vessel an integral part of the experiment itself. The results, published 15 April in Nature Chemistry1, could open the door to a new generation of custom labware made to suit individual researchers’ needs.”
