3D printing new parts for our broken hearts

3D printing new parts for our broken hearts

Researchers have developed a 'FRESH' new method of 3D printing complex anatomical structures out of collagen - a primary building block in many human tissues. The method demonstrates 3D printing of complex collagen-based cardiac structures and tissues that closely mimic the form and function of those in the human heart.

3D bioprinted organ models key to $1.9 billion market

3D bioprinted organ models key to $1.9 billion market

There is no doubt that 3D bioprinting is a technology of the future. Imagine being able to print a kidney or liver on demand. This is a stark contrast to the long wait for a donor organ today. Currently, the average wait time for a liver is 4 to 5 months, and 2.5 to 3 years for a kidney in the UK. Despite the acceleration in 3D bioprinting research we have witnessed in the past few years, we are still far from the holy grail of printed organs for transplant.

Microgel supports 3D printing of organs from stem cells

Microgel supports 3D printing of organs from stem cells

Scientists have developed a platform that prints bioink into 3D tissues using a supporting slurry of alginate microgel beads. The technique overcomes limitations of conventional bioprinted scaffolds and holds promise for tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug screening and developmental biology.

3D printed tissues and organs without the scaffolding

3D printed tissues and organs without the scaffolding

Engineered tissues and organs have been grown with various degrees of success in labs for many years. Many of them have used a scaffolding approach where cells are seeded onto biodegradable supportive structures that provide the underlying architecture of the organ or tissue desired.

3D printed artificial corneas similar to human ones

3D printed artificial corneas similar to human ones

The existing artificial cornea uses recombinant collagen or is made of chemical substances such as synthetic polymer. Therefore, it does not incorporate well with the eye or is not transparent after the cornea implant.
