3D printed hydrogel nanocomposites helps to detoxify the blood like a liver

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have developed a 3D printed detoxification device, inspired by the human liver to remove dangerous toxins from the blood. The device uses nanoparticles to trap pore-forming toxins that can damage cellular membranes, which are a key factor in illnesses that result from animal bites and stings, and bacterial infections.
