3D bio printing

Printing technique uses cells and molecules

Printing technique uses cells and molecules

Feb 21, 2018 United Kingdom
Researchers have developed a printing technique using cells and molecules normally found in natural tissues to create constructs that resemble biological structures.
First hybrid nanotech device mimicking blood-brain barrier

First hybrid nanotech device mimicking blood-brain barrier

Feb 16, 2018 Italy
The device, which is a combination of artificial and biological components, will be fundamental for studying new therapeutic strategies to overcome blood-brain barrier and treat brain diseases, such as tumors.
3D printing of living cells

3D printing of living cells

Feb 5, 2018 Netherlands
Using a new technique they call 'in-air microfluidics', scientists succeed in printing 3D structures with living cells. This special technique enable the fast and 'on-the-fly' production of micro building blocks that are viable and can be used for repairing damaged tissue, for example.

Jan 8, 2018 Japan
Researchers refine method of making bio-ink droplets stick to each other, enabling 3D printing of highly complex biological structures with a wide variety of cell types using inkjet printers.
3-D printed microfibers could aid artificially grown body part

3-D printed microfibers could aid artificially grown body part

Jan 4, 2018 United States
Much as a frame provides structural support for a house and the chassis provides strength and shape for a car, a team of engineers believe they have a way to create the structural framework for growing living tissue using an off-the-shelf 3-D printer.
