Eye cells 3D-printed for first time

Eye cells 3D-printed for first time | 3D Printing tools for science | Scoop.it

 

Scientists have used an inkjet printer to print cells from the eye, making a practical step in the quest to grow replenishment tissue for damaged or diseased organs.

 

Researchers at England's University of Cambridge extracted two types of cells from rat retinas and sent them through a printer nozzle to see if they survived.

 

The cells remained healthy after being "printed", retaining their ability to survive and grow in culture, they reported in the British journal Biofabrication.

 

3D printing is one of the new frontiers in engineering.

 

In that field, liquid or powdered polymers are substituted for ink. Sprayed in layers, the plastic forms a 3D shape – a boon for designers or exporters, for example, who want to show off a model of their product.
