OxSyBio high resolution tissue 3D bioprinting raises £10m in funding

OxSyBio, a 3D bioprinting spinout company of the University of Oxford, has raised £10 million (approx. $14 million USD) in Series A financing. The money, according to company founder and director Professor Hagan Bayley, “provides the long-term capital required to deliver our ambition of building affordable tissues for patients.” Part of Professor Bayley’s vision for the […]

Vessel 3D printing could help treat world leading cause of disability

Left without a trellis, vines will grow in any direction toward the sun. Much like climbing plants, new blood vessels need a guide too. In regenerative medicine research funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) 3D printed scaffolds have proved a useful tool for helping to grow small blood vessels. The 3D-printed vascular […]

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.

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 …
