Using 3D photolithographic printing to create a complex environment for assembling tissue that mimics the architecture of an organ.
3D Systems announced a broad new program to 3D print human tissue.
Charles R. Goulding and Preeti Sulibhavi examine a tragic applications of 3D printing and consider how things could have worked out for the better.
In a milestone development, 3DBio Therapeutics have completed reconstruction of a human ear with 3D printing.
I wondered what a “Brinter” is, and found out.
Charles R. Goulding and Arianna Coger consider new advances that could lead to great strides forward in bioprinting capabilities.
A 3D printed solution could allow breakthroughs in brain research.
The Wake Forest Institute has bioprinted regenerative knee cartilage tissue to replace damaged knee cartilage.
3D Systems announced a “significant” expansion into bioprinting applications.
Scientists have developed a new 3D printing material that closely mimics biological tissues.
The company that makes synthetic cadavers didn’t plan to expand into building 3D printers, but it’s a strong business move for the long haul, says the CEO.
Researchers have developed a highly unusual form of 3D printing that allows printing to take place inside a living body.
Researchers have developed a handheld 3D bioprinter that is apparently able to repair damaged muscle tissue. We think this could be automated in the future.
San Francisco-based biotechnology company Prellis Biologics has raised $8.7M in a Series A funding round. Holographic bioprinting is leading to new milestones and steps forward in 3D printed tissue and organs.
What do you get when a design studio collaborates with bioengineers?
A cherry-sized bioprint may lead to 3D printed human hearts in a decade.
This week’s selection is “3D Bioprinting and Nanotechnology in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine” by Lijie Grace Zhang, John P Fisher, and Kam Leong.
We’ve written about Dr. Gabor Forgacs of the University of Missouri before because his work in developing techniques for 3D printing human organs is making great progress. His company, Organovo, has developed a bioprinter, which could be the only such device available for purchase today. Recently he was interviewed by PopTech. You can read… Continue reading Interview With An Organ Printer
As usual, inventive minds are developing innovative uses for 3D printing. This time European medical technicians developed an “anatomically correct 3D rapid prototyping model” of a patient’s heart in an STL file. They then used a 3D printer (Zcorp 510) to punch out the model. Why do this? Because they were then able to easily… Continue reading 3D Printing Assists Cardiac Procedure
It’s not exactly Fabbing as we know it, but the World Intellectual Property Organization now includes an entry on printing live tissue. Yes, I mean punching out “mammalian cells” via an ink-jet process. Evidently the cells are deposited in layers, much like 3D printing, onto an existing substrate. In some cases the substrate is itself… Continue reading Printing Tissue by Ink-Jet
