Super Productive 3D Bioprinter Could Help Speed up Drug Development

Super Productive 3D Bioprinter Could Help Speed up Drug Development

A 3D printer that rapidly produces large batches of custom biological tissues could help make drug development faster and less costly. Nanoengineers developed the high-throughput bioprinting technology, which 3D prints with record speed--it can produce a 96-well array of living human tissue samples within 30 minutes. Having the ability to rapidly produce such samples could accelerate high-throughput preclinical drug screening and disease modeling.

New Technique Breaks the Mould for 3D Printing Medical Implants

New Technique Breaks the Mould for 3D Printing Medical Implants

Researchers have flipped traditional 3D printing to create some of the most intricate biomedical structures yet, advancing the development of new technologies for regrowing bones and tissue. The emerging field of tissue engineering aims to harness the human body's natural ability to heal itself, to rebuild bone and muscle lost to tumours or injuries.

Organic, Printable Device Could Restore Sight to the Blind

A Sydney engineer is developing a low-cost, 3D printed electrical device that uses absorbed light to fire the neurons that transmit signals from the eyes to the brain, acting as an artificial retina for those who have lost this capacity.

New Possibilities for 3D-Printing Human Tissue, Vocal Chord Repair

New Possibilities for 3D-Printing Human Tissue, Vocal Chord Repair

There is no replacement for the vocal cords when damage is severe or permanent. Now, a team of materials scientists has developed a soft material with promise of new treatments in the future. Their novel soft material, called an elastomer, is very stretchable and 10,000 times softer than a conventional rubber, matching the mechanical properties of vocal cords. The elastomer can be 3D printed for use in health care.

3D-Printed Jelly Developed

3D-printable gels with improved and highly controlled properties can be created by merging micro- and nano-sized networks of the same materials harnessed from seaweed, according to new research. The findings could have applications in biomedical materials - think of biological scaffolds for growing cells - and soft robotics.
