This amazing 3D blood vessel bio-printer could pave the way for the creation of “personalised, functional” human organs, it has been maintained.
The world-first, created by a Chinese biotech business, uses stem cell-based bio- ink technology to create the cells.
Its development, which was announced over the weekend by Sichuan Revotek Co, continues to be found as an important step forward in the journey towards organ regeneration.
Yang Keng, chairman of Sichuan Languang Development Co, Ltd said: “The creative breakthrough in the 3D blood vessel bio-printing means we’ve mastered the stem cell-based 3D bio-printing technology,” reports CCTV America.
He said the important breakthrough was reached through its self-developed stem cell bio-ink technology, 3D bio- printer and cloud computing platform.
When creating any organs, based on an expert who directed the application, James Kang blood vessels that carry nutrients to organs are indispensable components.
By relying on the 3D bio “we’ve realised the blood vessel regeneration -printer, the data model according to cloud computing and the biosynsphere technology,” he said.
The technology is a ways away being put into practice and the firm said it’s willing to seek international co-operation for the application.
The graft was taken in the Netherlands after titanium powder was heated and fused together by a laser one layer at a time.
At the time technicians said the operation paved the way for the use of more 3D-printed patient-specific parts.
