Researchers have developed a 3D printing technique that creates cellular metallic materials by smashing together powder particles at supersonic speed.
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.
In a research-first, scientists from Empa were able to 3D print stable well-shaped microstructures made from silica aerogels for use in biotechnology and precision engineering.
A bioceramic implant has proved to stimulate regeneration of natural skull bone so that even large cranial defects can be repaired in a way that has not been possible before.
Researchers mechanically reprocess silk into a biologically compatible component of bioinks that improves the structural fidelity of 3D-printed hydrogels containing cells for use in drug development and regrowing lost or damaged body
Radiator-like fluid systems adjust the genetic wiring inside human liver cells in preliminary work toward artificial organ-tissue engineering.
Using a device that could be built with a dollar's worth of open-source parts and a 3D-printed case, researchers want to help the hundreds of millions of older people worldwide who can't afford existing hearing aids to address their age-related hearing loss.
A dose of artificial intelligence can speed the development of 3D-printed bioscaffolds that help injuries heal.
Linking the human brain to a computer is usually only seen in science fiction, but now scientists have harnessed the power of 3D printing to bring the technology one step closer to reality.
The new 3D hydrogels provide high rates of cell proliferation, as they mimic lymph nodes, where T-cells reproduce in vivo.
