Bioactive gel to treat knee injuries being developed

Bioactive gel to treat knee injuries being developed | Tissue Engineering, Organ Printing, Biomanufacturing | Scoop.it
Current surgical options for repairing damaged cartilage caused by knee injuries are costly, can have complications, and often are not very effective in the long run.

FALSE ---Cornell Chronicle: Engineers 3-D print artificial ear

FALSE ---Cornell Chronicle: Engineers 3-D print artificial ear | Tissue Engineering, Organ Printing, Biomanufacturing | Scoop.it
Cornell bioengineers and physicians have created an artificial ear - using 3-D printing and injectable molds - that looks and acts like a natural ear.

3D scanning and modeling, 3D-printing a mold, cast a suitable collagen gel full of cartillage cells and after some days it can be implanted and nurtured from the host body

.

The process is smart enough, cute enough, clever enough, and amazing enough without the need of lying about it

 

Please, this attitude of rising false expectations hurts research

Organovo: The tissue printer

Organovo: The tissue printer | Tissue Engineering, Organ Printing, Biomanufacturing | Scoop.it

Scientists are taking the idea of 3D computer printing and catapulting it into the realms of something more suited to science fiction. The idea of printing a human heart, liver…

Lewis’ understanding of the chemistry and physics of soft materials enables her to design and manipulate various gels, polymers, and colloidal suspensions and create architectures that mimic those found in nature, such as bone, spider webs, or vascular networks. Her unique prototyping platform can pattern a broad array of functional materials under ambient conditions with features as tiny as one micron (less than one-twenty-five-thousandth of an inch) over areas as large as the top of a square coffee table, all in a matter of minutes. Once deposited, the inks solidify rapidly, enabling the creation of intricate spanning and self-supporting structures, even at a microscopic scale.

Printed human organs for testing and transplantation,...now just cells

Printed human organs for testing and transplantation,...now just cells | Tissue Engineering, Organ Printing, Biomanufacturing | Scoop.it
A specialised 3D printing process, using human stem cells, could pave the way to purpose-built replacement organs for patients, eliminating the need for organ donation, immune suppression and the problem of transplant rejection.

Once again, despite the content is impressive by itself we get a overrated opening title: PRINTING HUMAN ORGANS, while they only deposit cells.

 

Dr Shu said, “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that these cells have been 3D printed. The technique will allow us to create more accurate human tissue models which are essential to in vitro drug development and toxicity-testing. Since the majority of drug discovery is targeting human disease, it makes sense to use human tissues.

It looks like this being a trendy career trend. Every passing month brings higher number of places and companies working in this newborn industry. We'll have to make a map, not to get lost.
