What It Takes to Design a Bioprinter for Cancer Research, from Inventia Life Sciences

At a time when experts predict cancer will remain a massive health problem, advances in technology can make a big difference. Earlier this year, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced…

Inventia Life Science Empowers Researchers to Rapidly Scale 3D Cell Culture

No disease has ever been as overwhelming as cancer. Not only does it kill close to 10 million people every year, but even though we still fail to understand how…

3D Printed Monolithic Device Acts as Trap to Isolate Cancer Cells

International researchers have recently developed a method for capturing blood cells to isolate tumors, using a novel liquid biopsy device that functions as a 3D printed cell trap. This technique…

Allevi and Corning Present the First Protocol for Bioprinting With Matrigel

Mouse models of malignant tumors called sarcomas have provided a fundamental tool for researchers to understand the pathology behind human cancers. However, it was not until the 1980s when researchers…

Interview: CTIBiotech’s 3D Microtumors Can Aid in the Fight Against Cancer

Understanding cancer cells is a fundamental part of looking for ways to cure the disease, which has been around for a long time. Cancer is the second leading cause of…

Award for Inventia Life Science’s Bioprinter That Creates Tumors for Cancer Research

In 2018, Sydney-based startup Inventia Life Science and researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) built Rastrum, a new bioprinter which uses inkjet technology to print human cells…

Rice University Students Develop 3D Printed Training Models for Cervical Cancer Screenings

Nearly 300,000 women die of cervical cancer every year. That’s a sobering global statistic, but even more sobering is that the large majority – about 85 percent – of those…

Researchers Develop New Method of 3D Printing Living Bio-Tissues for Cancer Research

The University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan campus is a research hub located in the middle of British Columbia’s beautiful Okanagan Valley, and ranked among the world’s top 20 public universities….

Studying How Disease Metastasizes Using a Lifelike Cancer Environment Created with 3D Jet Writing

It’s probably safe to say that most people have been affected by cancer in one way or another, whether in being diagnosed themselves or watching a loved one battle the…

3D Printing for a Better Preclinical Cancer Model

Peritoneal cancer is a rare form of cancer that can be especially deadly as it frequently isn’t diagnosed until it’s in an advanced stage. Even as treatments for the 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…

14-Year-Old Creates Low-Cost Cancer Detection Platform Combining 3D Printing, Robotics, Computer Programming

Whoever said that kids are the future was pretty smart. Now that 3D printing technology is much more readily available in schools, libraries, and makerspaces, we’re seeing young, innovative minds…

Chinese Researchers Use 4D Printing Technology to Construct Breast Implant for Cancer Patient

I’m not certain about other countries, but breast cancer is the most common type of cancer for women in the US. According to the American Cancer Society, roughly 252,710 new…

Understanding Bone Cancer Tumors with 3D Printed Scaffolds and Flow Perfusion

One year ago, we heard about the work of researchers with Rice University, who used an OpenSLS 3D printer to develop 3D printed lattices for bone tissue engineering. The researchers began…

Researchers Convert MakerBot Replicator to 3D Print Biological Materials to Aid in Breast Cancer Research

Researchers from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) are teaming up to develop a method to better diagnose breast cancer, and learn to detect high-risk…

Bioactive 3D Printing for Effective 3D Printed Drug Therapy, LSU Researchers Awarded $40K for New Medical Center

At my fourth grade picnic, I ran up the steps of a gazebo and fell on my knee onto the brick steps. The cut was so deep it severed nerves,…
