3D printing

With increased medical precision, speed of service and reduced cost, 3D printing presents a unique opportunity to transform traditional healthcare and its delivery. We give key insights on an array of topics that includes 3D printing of implants and prosthetics, anatomical modeling for surgical planning and the advances of bioprinting of tissue, vessels and organs.

3D Printing living cells with unprecedented precision

3D Printing living cells with unprecedented precision

The combination of a 2Photon 3D-printer with an innovative hydrogel-based bioink allows the direct printing of 3D structures containing living cells at both the meso- and microscale.

3D lung created with inkjet bioprinting

3D lung created with inkjet bioprinting

The lung is rather challenging to create artificially for experimental use due to its complex structure and thinness. Researchers have succeeded in producing an artificial lung model using 3D printing.

Diabetes: bioprinting technique for bone repair

Diabetes: bioprinting technique for bone repair

Researchers have developed a technique that produces 3D bioprinted bone-repair "scaffolds" that could help in managing bone defects in diabetes patients.

Antibiotics embedded in 3D printed implants used to regenerate damaged bone

Antibiotics embedded in 3D printed implants used to regenerate damaged bone

Researchers have fabricated 3D scaffold implants containing antibiotics at high temperatures. These scaffolds support bone regeneration and manage the bone infections.

Sonolithography: Using ultrasound for bioprinting

Sonolithography: Using ultrasound for bioprinting

Researchers have found a way to coax particles and droplets into precise patterns using the power of sound.

New bioink brings bioprinting of organs closer to reality

New bioink brings bioprinting of 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.
