Futuristic Skin Bio Printer Successfully Completed By Wake Forest Researchers

A team from Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) has successfully developed Mobile Skin Bioprinting System that provides rapid on-site management of full-thickness wounds using 3D Printing, however waiting human trials. It consists of a hand-held 3D scanner and a printing head with an XYZ movement system containing eight 260 µm diameter nozzles, each driven by an independent dispensing motor with a ZScanner Z700 scanner. It 3D prints directly on the wound a double layered skin substitute consisting dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes cells that exactly match the patient’s wound.
