New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

Researchers have designed a new bioink which allows small human-sized airways to be 3D-bioprinted with the help of patient cells for the first time. The 3D-printed constructs are biocompatible and support new blood vessel growth into the transplanted material. This is an important first step towards 3D-printing organs.

Reality Checking the IOT story

Market research companies of all sizes generally pitch the 2020 market for Internet of Things at $200-£500 billion. They cite the leading players as companies with around that in total sales! These companies have mostly been large for quite a while so have their traditional businesses collapsed and been replaced by this great new thing? There is no evidence for that. So what do the pundits say these massive sums consist of?

Lab-Created Heart Valves Can Grow With The Recipient

Lab-Created Heart Valves Can Grow With The Recipient

A groundbreaking new study shows for the first time that lab-created heart valves implanted in young lambs for a year were capable of growth within the recipient. The valves also showed reduced calcification and improved blood flow function compared to animal-derived valves currently used when tested in the same growing lamb model.

Rapid 3D Printing Method Moves Towards 3D Printed Organs

It looks like science fiction: A machine dips into a shallow vat of translucent yellow goo and pulls out what becomes a life-sized hand. The hand, which would take six hours to create using conventional 3D printing methods, demonstrates what engineers say is progress toward 3D-printed human tissue and organs — biotechnology that could eventually save countless lives lost due to the shortage of donor organs.
