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 […]
