3D printing the human heart

Researchers have published a new 3D bioprinting method that brings the field of tissue engineering one step closer to being able to 3D print a full-sized, adult human heart.

Scientists print first 3D heart using patient's biological materials

In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D heart. Engineered heart completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of the patient.

A significant breakthrough in the field of 3D bio-printing

A team of UK researchers has developed a special fluid gel that can be used as a medium for suspension of biological material. This will solve a problem faced by scientists attempting to replicate soft human tissue.

Chinese scientists used 3D printing to grow new ears for 5 children

Each scaffold was made by 3D printing a replica of each patient’s ear using a Z Corporation Spectrum Z510 3D printer. The scaffolds were then populated with living cells from each patient.
