Can we print a human body part?


Doctor Peng Jiang and his colleagues at the Chinese People’s Liberation Army General Hospital are among the first in China to test 3D printing technology in the treatment of patients with bone problems.

According to online definitions, 3D printing is essentially a “layering” process in which powders are fused together layer by layer. Theoretically, any material – solid or liquid – can be fused into any shape, just like a sculpture. But the process is time-consuming and expensive, depending on the size, material and complexity of the model. Why bother, then, to use 3D technology if it takes a few hours to print a cup, when dozens can be produced in factories in far lesser time?

3D Bioprinting BioBots Wants Piece of $50 Billion Pharmaceutical Industry Research Spend

3D bioprinting technology startup, BioBots, is seeking to disrupt the nascent field of bioprinting with its new printer for 3D living tissue creation. At only USD$5,000 per printer, I would say they are off to a pretty good start.

3D bioprinting is not new: It began in the mid-1990s. Recently, many bioprinting efforts talk about the technology as a way to speed up the government requirements for getting a new drug to market.

3D Printing To Produce Human Organs For Transplant Patients

3d printer is ready to make another huge impact in the medical field, as we all know many people around the world has been dying due to lack of blood and organs, we would have saved millions of people in the past, if we had enough organs and blood, but things are changing, soon we will be having sufficient organs for transplant and it is possible only through 3d printing.

Researchers are using these Philly-made „bioprinters“ to make hearts, stomachs

BioBots makes a device that 3D-prints living cells instead of plastic. The company, founded by Penn grads, is headed to the SXSW Accelerator in Austin next month.

Danny Cabrera was a senior at Penn when opportunity knocked.

It came in the form of Ricardo Solorzano, a recent Penn bioengineering grad who had done his first two years at Miami Dade College, the same state school that Cabrera had transferred from. They never ran into each other in Florida and first met at Penn a few years later. Solorzano had a prototype for a desktop bioprinter, a 3D printer that uses cells to build living tissue. Did Cabrera want to see it?

And lo, BioBots was born.
