Tissue 3D printing expedited with finer in-air microfluidics at Twente

3D printing is instrumental in next generation pharmaceuticals and regenerative medicine. The flexibility of the technique allows it to be used in a number of ways from providing the perfect microenvironment for living cells, to microfluidic chips ideal for testing and creating new chemical compounds. However, a team at the University of Twente (UT), the […]

Freeze – Imperial College London 3D prints soft tissues using cryogenics

The main challenge of synthetic tissue is fabricating it in a way that tricks the body into believing that it has been there all along. As a recent preprint from Stanford University shows, even CRISPR gene editing isn’t entirely safe from the body’s immune system, though many other regenerative medicine therapies have already been tried […]

4D bioprinting makes the smallest sythetic blood vessels to date

Studying the behaviour of a single layer of cells, scientists realized that the two-dimensional approach was not enough. To this, they added a third dimension and 3D printed scaffolds for cells to proliferate in a way more faithful to the human body. Now, in an effort to match the minute scale of human blood vessels, […]

ISCO 3D bioprinting technology focuses on liver restoration

The International Stem Cell Corporation (ISCO) (OTCQB:ISCO), a clinical stage biotechnology company based in California, has announced the development of a new 3D bioprinter that produces liver tissue. The technology is suited to the liver progenitor cell (LPC) line, adding to ISCO’s existing pipeline of products including ISC-hpNSC for brain treatments, and ChondraStem to treat […]

3D printed shrimp proves to be a better home for human tissue

Today, cells grown in a lab can be transplanted into a patient to help heal skin injuries, and provide therapeutic treatment to internal tissue.

One day, …

Rice University initiates capillary growth with 3D printable gelatin hydrogel

Existing in their billions and responsible for exchanging water, oxygen and carbon dioxide between blood and tissue, capillaries are at the core of the human body. As …

Multimaterial 3D printed cell “scaffolds” strengthen research into regenerative medicine

A study produced by four research institutions in Brazil combines two 3D printable polymers into structures ideal for cell-growth. Known as cell scaffolds, these structures are used in regenerative …
