World’s First Functional 3D Printed Livers Created in Lab

 

"In 2009, a company called Organovo came up with what, at the time, sounded like an insane goal: they wanted to make machines that could print human organs. The printed organs could then be used as ransplants so that patients would no longer have to wait for donors. Their amazing dream of creating human organs with machines has finally come true – in a way. The company announced that they have successfully created three miniature bioprinted human livers."

Engineering 3D-printed stem cells

Engineering 3D-printed stem cells | shubush digital | Scoop.it

While much has been said on the topic of 3D printing within the context of the maker movement, it is in the medical world where arguably the most important advances are being made. Scientists at the Heriot-Watt University in Scotland have recently proven they can print human embryonic stem cells, a breakthrough which has the potential to revolutionise organ replacement in the coming years.

Scientists show off stretchy battery

Scientists show off stretchy battery | shubush digital | Scoop.it
Researchers crack the long-standing problem of how to make stretchy batteries to power a growing range of stretchy electronics.

 

'The team says the stretchy battery can be charged "inductively" - that is, wirelessly over a short distance. Prof Rogers said that the uses for such batteries and the stretchy circuits they power were myriad.

 

"The most important applications will be those that involve devices integrated with the outside of the body, on the skin, for health, wellness and performance monitoring," he explained.

 

However, the prototype batteries described in the paper were only run through 20 charge/discharge cycles, and Prof Rogers said that "additional development efforts to improve the lifetime will be required for commercialisation".'

At the Photonics West, the leading international fair for photonics taking place in San Francisco  this week, Nanoscribe GmbH, a spin-off of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), presents the world’s fastest 3D printer of micro- and nanostructures. With this printer, smallest three-dimensional objects, often smaller than the diameter of a human hair, can be manufactured with minimum time consumption and maximum resolution. The printer is based on a novel laser lithography method.

Laser machine tools can help speed product development cycles for a range of materials.

 

As product lifecycles shrink, there is increasing pressure on research and engineering personnel to speed the new product development cycle. A variety of technologies, from traditional CNC machining to waterjets and 3D printing, are now widely employed to enable the quick creation of 3D prototype parts directly from computer-aided design (CAD) files.

 

Laser machine tools are becoming another important tool in this arsenal, as they can process a wide variety of materials with high precision, repeatability, and speed, and are also relatively inexpensive to operate. Otherlab, San Francisco, is a small research and development firm that specializes in creating prototype solutions to problems that are computationally complex. One of the fabrication techniques they employ is a laser-based machine tool.
