„3D Bioprinting Solutions“ to reveal first Russian 3D bioprinter in late October

While there are a number of areas in the field of 3D printing technology that haven’t yet been mastered, one the biggest challenges currently around must be bioprinting. To be sure, there are a number of 3D bioprinters out there already – only this week we reported 3Dynamic Systems and their two bioprinters – but there is still a long way to go before this technology becomes affordable, available and commercially interesting.

Aspect Biosystems of Vancouver 3D Prints Human Cells, Now a Finalist in $300k Competition

Was there ever a point in history where speculation regarding the possibilities of scientific innovation wasn’t greeted by some as implausible in the least, dangerous, or even heretical at worst? So often, it has been the case that the imagination and conjecture intersect and “Eureka!” moments result in scientific advancement, and perhaps in no other field are ethical reservations expressed as vehemently as with biotechnology. Those in the industry generally seem all too aware of the fear and skepticism potentially generated by each breakthrough. Konrad Walus, CEO of Aspect Biosystems, a University of British Columbia-based biotech company, said recently in this regard, when discussing Aspect’s recent breakthrough in 3D-bio-printing, “It’s not science fiction,” he pointed out. “People have done this. They’ve taken all of the cells off of the mechanical part of a heart, and then reseeded new heart cells on there–and it beats.”

University-developed 3D tissue bioprinting technology now commercially available

Swansea University life science technology spin out company 3Dynamic Systems Ltd (3DS) has announced the availability of its two 3D bioprinting machines – the Alpha and Omega bioprinters.

These two new machines are capable of depositing a range of biologically active and biologically compatible materials, with applications for life sciences research, regenerative medicine, bone tissue engineering, and pharmaceutical development.

3DS, which is based at the University, was founded by Dr Daniel J Thomas (pictured), Senior Research Officer in the College of Engineering’s Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC).

3Dynamic Systems Working on 3D-Bioprinting Human Bone, Skin & Muscle on Demand

Bioprinting certainly will play a major role in the future of medicine. Implantation of 3D printed bones, soft tissue, and eventually entire organs look to be on the horizon. With several companies working on the technology, and the science behind 3D bioprinting making huge strides in recent years, the entire medical field may be in for major disruptions.

3D-Druck: „Endloses“ Potenzial für Anwendung in Medizin

Mithilfe der 3D-Druck-Technologie wird die Medizin gerade revolutioniert. Und zwar nicht nur in ihren Möglichkeiten, sondern auch im Hinblick auf Kosten. Besonders im Bereich Organ-Transplantation kann die schnelle und passgenaue Anfertigung von notwendigen Körperteilen nicht nur Leben retten, sondern auch den illegalen Handel mit echten Organen obsolet machen.

Bioprinting – Die künftige Vorratskammer für Spenderorgane

Mit 3D-Biodruckern wollen Wissenschaftler in naher Zukunft Organe im Labor herstellen, es wäre eine schier unerschöpfliche Vorratskammer für Spenderorgane. Noch ist es nicht so weit. Mit den Eigenschaften der sogenannten biologischen Tinte, die beim Druck von menschlichem Gewebe zum Einsatz kommt, beschäftigt sich ein US-amerikanisches Forscherteam an der Medical University of South Carolina gemeinsam mit chinesischen Kollegen von der Zhejiang Universität.

Biotechnology to the Rescue – From nanodrugs to organs made by 3-D printing, medical science’s inventions are changing lives.

Man-made organs

What if rather than using medicine or genes – or an organ donor – to treat a failing heart or liver, your doctor could simply replace those parts with organs that are nearly identical to the originals, made from your own cells? That dream is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Much of the revolution in regenerative medicine is being driven by 3-D printing, the use of specialized machines that can create tissue and organlike structures from a patient’s cells. Among the body parts now streaming from 3-D printers are blood vessels, livers and skin to heal wounds. At the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, researchers are using 3-D printing and other techniques to engineer more than 30 different replacement tissues and organs, including bladders, kidneys and, most recently, vaginas made from the cells of girls suffering from a rare genetic condition that causes reproductive organs to be underdeveloped.
