  • University of Bristol develops new Bio-Ink for Stem Cells

     University of Bristol 3D Print Bio Ink with Stem Cells

    Scientists at the University of Bristol have developed a new kind of stem-cell containing bio-ink, which could eventually allow the production of complex tissues for surgical implants. This new bio-ink contains two different polymers, a natural and a synthetic one. Team has been successful to 3D Print full-size tracheal cartilage ring and expect to print surgical bone or cartilage implants with it.

  • These 4 Universities have their own 3D Printing Plans

     These 4 Universities have their own 3D Printing Plans

    The Four Universities are working their own way to develop 3D Printing for medical uses and these include Indiana University-layering by applying a viscous bio-ink; Wake Forest University- Integrated Tissue and Organ Printing System (ITOP), which deposits biodegradables to form the tissue's shape, and water-based gels that contain the cells; Pennsylvania State University- artificial cartilage produced by the team is very similar to native cow cartilage and lastly, Advanced Solutions Life Sciences working with capillary beds, which they can flow blood through in the lab.

  • Students pioneer Scaffold-Free Bioprinting with Hacked Ultimaker

    Students pioneer Scaffold Free Bioprinting with Hacked Ultimaker

    Students at Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich and the Technical University of Munich formed up a team called Team BiotINK and have discovered a way of 3d printing without going through scaffold formation. Using ultimaker 2+ 3d printer and biotink with streptavidin, the 3d printing can now be done without scaffolds and hence reducing the cost of 3d printing.

  • Recreating Microvasculature with 3D Printing

    Coronary Microvasculature 300x300 2

    One roadblock to 3D printing complete, functional organs lies in our inability to ensure the engineered tissue will be well nourished with an accessible blood supply.  Presently we have seen attempts at recreating arteries and veins, but successfully ensuring blood flow deep into tissue to the level of the capillary beds has proven elusive. A group of bioengineers and clinicians have pioneered a technique allowing them to print a fibrin patch containing organized endothelial cells, the cellular linining of blood vessels. Not only did the printed patch enhance blood vessel formation, but the engineered vascular tissue actually integrated with the host's own vasculature, improving tissue perfusion of damaged tissues. This research provides a novel technique that may permit printing of larger blocks of tissue and even organs.

  • Human Earlobe Receives Complex Vasculature With Open Source Vitaprint

     Human Earlobe receives Complex Vasculature with Open Source Vitaprint

    The Institute for Development of Advanced Applied Systems (IRNAS), located in Slovenia, operates Symbiolab, an open source-based biolab that focuses on the development of future-proof 3D biofabrication. The company developed Vitaprint, an open source platform which has now been used by IRNAS to fabricate 3D Printed Blood Vessels into a human earlobe using the freeform perfusable vessel and channel systems into bio-compatible hydrogels.

  • New Bioprinting Ink Will Open the World for Scaffolds

    New Bioprinting Ink will open the world for Scaffolds

    A group of researchers from Japan’s Osaka University have developed a new bioprinting ink using a method based on hydrogelation mediated by horseradish peroxidase, an enzyme that can create cross-links between phenyl groups of an added polymer in the presence of the oxidant hydrogen peroxide. This bioprinting ink will be better substitute of Sodium Alginate as it will allow 3D Printing of more variety of scaffolds.

  • Researchers Use 3D Printing & Cryogenics to Develop Replicas for Tissue-Regeneration

    Researchers Use 3D Printing Cryogenics to Develop Biological Replicas for Tissue Regeneration

    Researchers from Imperial College London (ICL) have developed new 3D Printing Technique to create biological replicas for tissue regeneration. In collaboration with Kings College London, they experimented with 3D Printing and Cryogenics using solid Carbon Dioxide (dry ice) to quickly cool down hydrogel ink and Ultimaker 3D Printer. Once the ink softens, it forms a gel as soft as human tissue, which was then seeded with Dermal Fibroblasts with success.

  • Researchers Discuss What 3D Printing Is Yet To Do In Medical Field

    Researchers Discuss What 3D Printing Is Yet To Do In Medical Field

    A team of researchers based at the University of Utah worked on unmet clinical needs of 3D Printing and explained the needs in terms of structural support for skeletal and tubular organs, novel drug delivery strategies, organ-on-a-chip platform and finally, multimaterial 3D printing, which can help speed up the creation of bioelectronic constructs to impart active functionalities to an otherwise passive construct. Through the research, they addressed how 3D Printing Potential can be explored furthermore to increase compliance and comfort in terms of human satisfaction.

    3D Printed Bioprinted Lungs Through Collaboration Of CollPlant and United Therapeutics Corporation

    CollPlant and United Therapeutics Corporation have recently announced their licensing, development, and commercialization agreement for 3D Bioprinted Lung Transplants. Combining United Therapeutics’ organ manufacturing and regenerative medicine capabilities through Lung Biotechnology PBC with CollPlant’s BioInk and proprietary recombinant human collagen (rhCollagen) technology, CollPlant will receive an initial upfront payment of $5 million to kick start the project.

  • Bioprinting Company Allevi Releases Their Own Bioprint Ink Coaxial Extrsion Kit

    Bioprinting Company Allevi Releases Their Own Bioprint Ink Coaxial Extrsion Kit

    Allevi, a Bioprinter Company launched in 2014 has been famous for bioprinters such as Allevi One to Allevi 6, but they are also selling the Ink Kits usable with their printers, aiming at binding customers, getting revenue and building stronger relationship with their customers. After the FRESH Kit, they have launched Coaxial Extrusion Kit, which can create perfusable microchannels with hydrogels and cast endothelial microchannels, thus extending their use in all sorts of tissue types from Cartilage, Skeletal muscle, hearts and tumors.

  • 4D Bioprinting Can Have Miraculous Potential In Regenerative Medicine

    4D Bioprinting Can Have Miraculous Potential In Regenerative Medicine

    A group of Portugese Researchers are working towards 4D Bioprinting in Regenerative medicine and ultimately pave the path for bioprinting human tissues for medical uses. With 3D Printing enhanced with 4th dimension, the researchers point out the potential to have greater control over size, shape and interconnectivity. Through 4D Bioprinting, researchers will be able to morph bioinks into viable cells and tissues without the boundaries of nature, however, this is yet to be explored in terms of temperature, peripheral chemicals, stress and UV light exposure, and ofcourse, the nature itself.
