3D Printers Are Getting Better At Printing Blood Vessels

3D Printers Are Getting Better At Printing Blood Vessels | 3D-Print Tech | Scoop.it

Scientists at the University of California, San Diego have been playing around with the idea of printing blood vessels with 3D printers for a while now. Previous efforts in building blood vessels took a long time as the device first had to print out a sugar-based cast and the cover them in stem cells to create the working vessels. The new technology can create blood vessels out of soft hydrogels in seconds.
