H&E stained sections of porcine colon explants cultured using the 3D–printed device. Overall, normal tissue architecture is observed until 24 h after initial culture setup, with progressively increasing sloughing off the superficial epithelial (yellow arrow) layer beginning at 18 h. Distension of crypt glands is observed at 24 h (green arrow)
