Printing Living Organs
Posted by keelynet on December 27, 2009
This offers a lot of hope for those with failing organs. Personally I’d rather we regenerate our own organs internally but hey, whatever works!
“Organovo and strategic partner Invetech hope in 2010 to release a commercial version of their 3D organ printer capable of producing very basic tissues like blood vessels.
While it is still limited to simple tissue structures (full organs are a long ways off), Organovo plans to deliver the printers to various research institutions interested in organ and tissue production.
Working with these institutions, Organovo hopes to one day progress to creating a system that can print organs as easily as other 3D printers print plastic figurines.” – Full Article Source
