Qingdao Unique to Begin Animal Testing on 3D Printed Skin & Corneas Within 1 Year, Other Organs in 2 Years

While 3D printing has been making its mark for a couple decades within the field of rapid prototyping, it is now just beginning to break the surface when it comes to medical uses. One Chinese company, called Qingdao Unique has been working in the field of bioprinting for some time now. Now Qingdao Unique tells 3DPrint.com that they plan to 3D print corneas and skin within just one year.

3D Printed Algae Provides Oxygen Source for Growing Bioprinted Human Cells

Bioprinting promises to change the way we look at the field of medicine forever. As several companies are already printing living human tissue, it’s only a matter of time before many ailments can be halted via this incredible technology. Although much research still needs to be done, and experts in many different fields will need to work together for a common cause, ultimately we will one day be transplanting entire 3D printed human organs into individuals who likely would have otherwise perished.

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?

Lebendige Knochen aus dem 3D-Drucker

Freiburger Wissenschaftler wollen Gewebe mit eingebauten Blutgefäßen drucken / Förderung durch Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft
Knochen mit eigenen Blutgefäßen könnten künftig mit dem 3D-Drucker hergestellt werden. Freiburger Wissenschaftler entwickeln jetzt ein Druck- Verfahren, das aus Zellen von Knochen und Blutgefäßen funktionsfähige Knochen erzeugt. Die Gefäßzellen sollen die Durchblutung des Gewebes verbessern, indem sie eine Verbindung zum Blutkreislauf des Patienten herstellen. Für die Entwicklung dieser 3D-Druck-Methode erhalten die Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler eine dreijährige Förderung der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in Höhe von 460.000 Euro.

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.

Will.i.am: „Eventually 3D Printing Will Print People“

We all likely have realized by now that the rate of technological progress increases over time. For example, we will likely see as much progress in the next decade as we have in the last 30 years combined. This accelerating rate of development in technology ultimately will equate to a world alien to most of us, likely within many of our lifetimes.
