Researchers Use 3D Printing to Create Organoids for Drug Testing in Monitored Body-On-A-Chip System

Researchers Use 3D Printing to Create Organoids for Drug Testing in Monitored Body-On-A-Chip System

An organ-on-a-chip is a micro physiological system – a small cell culture chip that can mimic the structure and function of living human tissue. Organs-on-chips are helpful in terms of drug testing, and may one day even render animal testing non-essential, which would be great news. However, these small systems are not foolproof, and it’s just as […]

3D Bioprinted Liver Tissue Constructs Used to Develop More Accurate Drug Toxicity Testing System

3D Bioprinted Liver Tissue Constructs Used to Develop More Accurate Drug Toxicity Testing System

While many think that bioprinting means that we’ll soon be able to 3D print a brand new organ with the touch of a button, that’s not the case quite yet. However, there have been several recent bioprinting advancements that show the technology has definite applications in terms of drug testing. Drug screen applications require a […]

Why Drug Testing May Be the Most Important Application of 3D Bioprinting

Why Drug Testing May Be the Most Important Application of 3D Bioprinting

3D bioprinting is, needless to say, great cause for excitement. Usually, most people’s minds go immediately to one idea: the idea that in the future, we may be able to 3D print working human organs that can actually be transplanted into patients, saving their lives without requiring a donated organ from another person. It’s understandable […]

Recently Released Studies Show Increasing Promise of Organovo 3D Printed Kidney and Liver Tissue for Pharmaceutical Testing

Recently Released Studies Show Increasing Promise of Organovo 3D Printed Kidney and Liver Tissue for Pharmaceutical Testing

If you’re only marginally familiar with bioprinting and have heard of just one company in the industry, it’s likely that company is Organovo. The San Diego company was one of the first, if not the first, to show the world that bioprinting is actually a viable technology when they introduced their 3D printed exVive3D Human Liver […]

University of California San Diego’s 3D Printed Liver Tissue May Be the Closest We’ve Gotten to a Real Printed Liver

University of California San Diego’s 3D Printed Liver Tissue May Be the Closest We’ve Gotten to a Real Printed Liver

While scientists have been working on 3D printing all types of human tissue, there’s been a particular focus on the liver – for good reason. The organ plays a critical role in filtering toxins, breaking down fats, and producing vital proteins; when something goes wrong with the liver, the entire body is in serious trouble. […]

Organovo’s 3D Printed Liver Tissue Achieves Important Toxicology Test Results

Probably one of the more exciting companies within the 3D printing space is that of Organovo. The company, based in San Diego California, has an ultimate goal of 3D printing actual human organs for transplantation. Although they are likely a decade, or maybe further, from actually implanting the first 3D printed organ, the company is making […]

Bioprinting Livers: Starting Small

At this point in time, many leading college research departments have begun working on various aspects of 3D bioprinting. Whether it’s developing anything from 3D blood vessels to growing organs for performing drug toxicity testing, research is in high gear. A perfect example of this ground breaking work is being done at MIT. Dr. Sangeeta […]
