Microbots to Kill and Clean Biofilms

Microbots to Kill and Clean Biofilms

Biofilms -- microbial communities that form slimy layers on surfaces -- are difficult to treat and remove, often because the microbes release molecules that block the entry of antibiotics and other therapies. Now, researchers have made magnetically propelled microbots derived from tea buds, which they call "T-Budbots," that can dislodge biofilms, release an antibiotic to kill bacteria, and clean away the debris.

3D Printing Method Jump-Starts Tiny Medical Devices for the Body

3D Printing Method Jump-Starts Tiny Medical Devices for the Body

Researchers have developed a new method of 3D-printing gels and other soft materials that has the potential to create complex structures with nanometer-scale precision. Because many gels are compatible with living cells, the new method could jump-start the production of soft tiny medical devices such as drug delivery systems or flexible electrodes that can be inserted into the human body.

Oxygen-Releasing Bioink for 3D Bioprinting

Oxygen-Releasing Bioink for 3D Bioprinting

A collaborative team has developed a bioink that can generate oxygen and deliver it to cells in 3D printed tissues to keep them alive before blood vessels penetrate the tissue. Therefore, when it is used in 3D bioprinting to construct tissue implants, the ability of cells to regenerate new tissue is greatly enhanced.
