Zero Gravity Bioprinter is Ready for Delivery to the International Space Station

Zero Gravity Bioprinter is Ready for Delivery to the International Space Station

An amazing thing happened two years ago, when Techshot and nScrypt worked together to 3D print a human heart – in zero gravity. Not a working heart, yet, but the two companies were the first to 3D print cardiac and vascular structures in zero gravity using adult human stem cells. Why would they do such a […]

Cellink Turns to 3D Printing Tumors to Combat Cancer

Cellink Turns to 3D Printing Tumors to Combat Cancer

It may seem counterintuitive, but the Swedish biotech company Cellink is actually fabricating tumors in an effort to combat cancer. The company, which exploded on the scene in 2016, has risen to fame as a result of their biological ink, designed to be used by a variety of 3D printers to create different types of […]

3D Bioprinter Offers New Treatment for Type 1 Diabetes

3D Bioprinter Offers New Treatment for Type 1 Diabetes

Researchers at the University of Wollongong have done some impressive things. They’ve 3D printed brain tissue, and developed a 3D printing pen capable of drawing cartilage into knees. They’ve created an advanced soft robotic hand. And now they’ve developed a new 3D bioprinter that could revolutionize the way Type 1 diabetes is treated. The bioprinter is […]

Aether 1 3D Bioprinter Promises a Plethora of Printing Options for Artistic Expression

Aether 1 3D Bioprinter Promises a Plethora of Printing Options for Artistic Expression

My father once paid $100 for a calculator. This was back in the mid-1970s and this calculator could perform the basic functions and print them as he entered them. It was only the size of the collected works of William Shakespeare and was considered to be an extravagantly advanced piece of machinery. Now, of course, […]

Peer-Reviewed Bioprinting: EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter Series Now Featured in Over 200 Research Papers

Peer-Reviewed Bioprinting: EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter Series Now Featured in Over 200 Research Papers

EnvisionTEC is often mentioned in the same sentence as jewelry and dental 3D printing, and that’s fair, as the company does supply a good selection of 3D printers and materials for those applications. EnvisionTEC is a lot more than that, though – in fact, it has at least one 3D printer specifically designed for almost […]

3D Printing a Thyroid: 3D Bioprinting Solutions Research May Enable Future Organ Bioprinting

3D Printing a Thyroid: 3D Bioprinting Solutions Research May Enable Future Organ Bioprinting

The thyroid is a tiny organ, but it can cause some big problems if it malfunctions – and there are quite a few ways in which it can malfunction. It’s also especially problematic because while other organ problems can be corrected through transplantation, thyroid transplants aren’t done – the risks of rejection and problems caused […]

The State of Bioprinting and 3D Printing in Medicine

The State of Bioprinting and 3D Printing in Medicine

Bioprinting has been a much hyped and anticipated technology development. The idea of being able to 3D print organs is a very powerful one indeed. If researchers are successful in commercializing bioprinting then life could be extended for many people. In areas such as heart disease, liver disease, cancers and implantology, bioprinting can have huge […]

Today in Bioprinting: A Dog Tests Out 3D Printed Bone Treatment for Landmine Survivors and a Bioprinter Operates on a Six-Axis Robot

In December, the University of Glasgow received £2.8 million from Find a Better Way, a charity set up to help survivors of landmine blasts. The funding was granted to the university to develop a method of 3D printing bone that involves coating plastic scaffolds with stem cells and a growth factor called BMP-2, and placing them […]

CSIC and Queensland University of Technology Next Up to Receive Aether 1 Bioprinter Beta Units

Every story about 3D bioprinting represents an exciting, potentially lifesaving development, and one of the most quickly advancing developments in bioprinting lately has been that of 3D printed skin. In January, a collaboration between several Spanish institutions resulted in the creation of a 3D printer capable of printing actual, functional human skin. That research was documented […]

First Beta Unit of the Aether 1 Bioprinter Ships to the University of Cambridge, Ready to “Absolutely Transform the Entire Bioprinting Market”

First Beta Unit of the Aether 1 Bioprinter Ships to the University of Cambridge, Ready to “Absolutely Transform the Entire Bioprinting Market”

About a year ago, a startup called Aether seemed to come right out of the ether, promising a bold new 3D bioprinter with more than 20 swappable extruders. The multipurpose Aether 1 sounded too good to be true, especially coming from a new, unknown company, but it’s already gotten serious interest from a number of universities […]

Spanish Researchers Tell Us About Their 3D Bioprinter, Capable of Printing Functional Human Skin

3D bioprinting started as a far-off prospect greeted with skepticism – 3D printed human organs? Come on. It’s progressed to the point, though, that while it still boggles minds, few people doubt that it’s a real thing that’s happening right now. It’s hard to be skeptical when scientists are implanting working 3D printed blood vessels […]

3D bioprinting is one of those technologies that seems as though it would be more likely to show up in a science fiction movie than one of today’s research facilities. While we are still probably over a decade away from being able to take living cells and fabricate entire working organs, the hardware for doing […]
