3D-printed human cells could replace animal testing | technology

3D-printed human cells could replace the need for animal testing of new drugs within five years, according to a pioneering bio-printing expert at the 3D Printshow in London, which opens today.

 

"It lends itself strongly to replace animal testing," said Bioengineering PhD student Alan Faulkner-Jones of Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. "If it gets to be as accurate as it should be, there would be no need to test on animals."

 

Faulkner-Jones spoke to Dezeen while demonstrating the technology at the 3D Printshow in London this week as part of the 3D Printshow Hospital, a feature designed to showcase medical uses of 3D printing.

 

Using a bio-printer made from a hacked MakerBot printer, Faulkner-Jones is demonstrating how human stem cells can be successfully printed to create micro-tissues and micro-organs that can be used to test drugs

 

The technology could be ready to replace animal testing within five years, he believes. "The micro-tissues I think would be in the order of five years away hopefully, if we carry on at the pace we are now," he said. "You could even test personalised drugs.

 

So you'd be able to use cells of the person that is ill and create specific micro-tissues that would replicate their response, rather than the response of a generic human.

"Within cells there is an intricate network of organelles that all have unique functions. These organelles allow the cell to function properly. Arranged below according to location (nucleus, cytoplasm, and surface) is a description of common organelles. You may click on the organelle's name in the list below to directly reach the feature on that structure."
