Advanced Solutions Life Sciences TSIM and BioAssemblyBot Demonstration

Tissue Structure Information Modeling (TSIM) is an intuitive software tool that empowers doctors and scientists to design, visualize, collaborate, simulate and analyze 3D computer models of complex tissue structures.

BioAssemblyBot is an integrated tabletop workstation with a multi-axis robot that facilitates 3D tissue assembly of organic shapes.

Beginning with TSIM Software, users construct biological models that can then be fabricated utilizing the BioAssemblyBot. Next, the BioAssemblyBot will automatically calibrate the position of the arm using laser sensors. The robot arm then moves to the storage rack, selects the proper syringe from the storage rack based on the assigned material from the TSIM Software, and dispenses the exact amount of material in order to construct the biological model.

New 3D bioprinter to reproduce human organs, change the face of healthcare: The inside story

Researchers are only steps away from bioprinting tissues and organs to solve a myriad of injuries and illnesses. TechRepublic has the inside story of the new product accelerating the process.

If you want to understand how close the medical community is to a quantum leap forward in 3D bioprinting, then you need to look at the work that one intern is doing this summer at the University of Louisville.

Steaks aus dem 3D-Drucker: US-Startup erhält dafür zehn Millionen Dollar

Schon 2012 hat daher das US-Startup Modern Meadow eine Lösung für das Fleischdilemma präsentiert: Es hat eine Technologie entwickelt, um Fleisch und Leder aus Biotinte zu gewinnen. ”Biofabrication” heißt das Verfahren.
Dabei wird Kühen Zellgewebe entnommen, das Forscher isolieren und teilweise modifizieren. Im Bioreaktor vermehren sich die Zellen dann millionenfach und fügen sich anschließend im 3D-Drucker zu einer festen Masse.

Will RoosterBio and 3-D BioPrinting Change Modern Medicine?

Jon Rowley, founder of RoosterBio, enables the next generation of medicine with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for Regenerative Medicine and 3-D Bioprinting.

RoosterBio’s innovative stem cell products changes the landscape for biomedical research scientists from one of scarcity to abundance with an unlimited field of opportunities to help the human body with an injury or disease be restored to health.

Tissue engineering is an obvious area for development. Current RoosterBio clients are developing cartilage, bone tissue and even, engineering “cell sheets” into solid cords, creating tendons for transplantation into animal models. Another area for development is biofabrication injection molding, creating, for example, replacement disks for the spine. Even soluble factors that MSCs secrete into their culture medium has caught the fascination of a pharmaceutical research labs (as new drugs) and cosmeceutical developers (for facial creams). Now, with the ability to rapidly produce billions of high quality stem cells at the same time (or as manufacture would say “within the same lot”) along with the potential targeting of these cells directly to areas of injury or disease, the possibilities for research and applications are the next frontier in medicine.

Using 3D-Bioprinting for Artificial Bones

3D-Bioprinting has shown promise not only to rebuild organs, but for producing experimental tissues for drug trials and laboratory testing. This technique uses a patient’s own cells bioprinted in the form of a tissues. Given its inherently interdisciplinary nature, 3D-Bioprinting is accelerating at an ever increasing rate.

Now a similar bioprinting technique has been developed to produce artificial bone. A team at Swansea Universities Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating have developed the technique in hopes of producing an effective means toward printing transplantable bone tissue.

Postech’s Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Lab Is Leading the 3D Biofabrication Charge

I know I just wrote that functioning 3D printing organs are still very far down the road but that does not at all mean that top notch scientists are not already working on it, to define the procedures that will one day allow us to 3D biofabricate them. If you thought 3D printing technologies were varied and somewhat confusing, that is nothing compared to 3D bioprinting technologies and I have never heard someone speak with such an in-depth comprehension of them as Dr Dong-Woo Cho from Postech University in South Korea.

3D Printing Allows For Human Embryonic Stem Cell Breakthrough – Cell Organization

Human embryonic stem cells (HESC), for years have been the center of controversy. This is mainly due to moral issues, creating a dilemma in determining where the fine line between human life, and a simple human cell should reside. Should HESCs have the same basic moral status as a human being? This is a question I am not qualified to answer, nor do I even want to consider at this point in time.

Students Create a Bio Printer To Test Drugs on Your Own 3D Printed Human Cells Rather than Animals

At their annual Innovation Expo, Stevens Institute of Technology holds an Elevator Pitch competition where students have two minutes to pitch a new business or product to a panel of judges. Sarima Ali was chosen by her team to pitch their bio printing business Ducali 3D Printing Solutions and their proposed bio printer.

Stevens Institute of Technology: 2014 Innovation Expo Elevator Pitch – Ducali 3D Printing Solutions

3D printing of biological materials has become a lucrative and exciting field of research. Most 3D printers, however, are not optimized for biological applications and are limited by the number of print heads they possess. The goal of this project is to fabricate a fully functional 3D printer with two print heads that operate on independent X-Y-Z axes. Furthermore, each print head will have 8 nozzles- a design that will allow for quick and efficient printing in a 96-well (12 X 8) plate. A specialized ink that is biocompatible will also be created for this project. The consistency of the ink will be optimized such that the 3D printer can print to its full potential- a spatial resolution of 50 microns or less.

The FabLab in Amsterdam Is Moving On to Bioprinting

It seems to me that – as complex as it may be – we are going to be able to 3D print working organs before we 3D print a working smartphone as a single unit. That’s because, at least the organs will be 3D printed using stem cells, while to 3D print a working telephone we are going to have to develop new plastic hybrid conductive materials that do not exist yet. Of course it is not really this simple but the fact of the matter is that bioprinting is taking off, and it is not all that different from desktop FDM 3D printing.
