3D Printing Meets Meat in the Largest Cultured Steak Ever Made

3D Printing Meets Meat in the Largest Cultured Steak Ever Made

Recently, Israeli bioprinting company MeaTech 3D Ltd announced that it succeeded in printing a 104 gram (3.67 oz) cultivated steak using their proprietary 3D printing technology. Made of real cultivated fat and muscle cells, the steak is believed to be the largest cultured steak produced to date. The achievement represents another step on the road to mass production of cultured meat, an important goal to combat climate change.

3D Printing of Prosthetic Eyes

3D Printing of Prosthetic Eyes

Not only is a 3D-printed prosthetic eye produced in a fraction of the time taken by the conventional process, but the resulting prosthesis also looks more realistic. This is made possible by the algorithms of Cuttlefish:Eye, a software solution from the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD.

3D Printing of Blood Plasma May Speed up Wound Healing

3D Printing of Blood Plasma May Speed up Wound Healing

Platelet-rich plasma is a natural healing substance in our blood. This study explores ways of enhancing the wound healing process by extracting PRP from the blood of a patient with a complex skin wound and manipulating it through 3D printing to form an implant for tissue repair which can be used to treat difficult-to-heal skin wounds in a single surgical procedure.

3D Printing to Grow Full-Thickness Skin in the Lab

3D Printing to Grow Full-Thickness Skin in the Lab

Skin is the body's first line of defence against toxins, radiation and harmful substances. It has at least six functions, regenerates itself approximately once each month, and consists of up to seven layers of tissue. It's no wonder, then, that researchers and clinicians are interested in producing this remarkable organ in the lab so that it can be used to repair injuries caused by burns, surgery or disease.

3D Printing Blood Vessel Networks

3D Printing Blood Vessel Networks

Researchers have succeeded in creating a hierarchical blood vessel network, necessary for supplying blood to implanted tissue using 3D printing for creating big and small blood vessels to form for the first time a system that contained a functional combination of both.

Advancing 3D Bioprinting of Cartilage for Facial Reconstruction

Advancing 3D Bioprinting of Cartilage for Facial Reconstruction

A world-leading £2.5 million plus research programme that aims to revolutionise surgeons' ability to reconstruct nose and ear cartilage in patients affected by facial difference has been launched by The Scar Free Foundation, the only medical research charity which focuses solely on scarring, and Health and Care Research Wales. The three-year programme at Swansea University will have a global impact - advancing 3D bioprinting of cartilage for facial reconstruction.
