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 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.
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.
