ISS cosmonauts bioprint bone tissue in space using 3dbio’s magnetic bioprinter

For the first time in the world, Russian scientists from 3D Bioprinting Solutions (3dbio) were able to bioprint bone tissue in space by growing fragments of bone structure in zero-gravity conditions. During experiments on the ISS, tissue samples were made from calcium phosphate ceramics, which were populated with living cells. These sample are now currently being comprehensively studied on Earth. In the future, this technology will enable the creation of bone implants for transplantation to cosmonauts on long-range interplanetary expeditions.

In August 2019 3D Bioprinting Solutions carried out a high molecular weight protein crystallization experiment on board the ISS with Organ.Aut magnetic bioprinter and specials cuvettes (fig. 1a). In this experiment scientists and engineers from 3DBio used a new method – magnetic sedimentation of protein molecules in a paramagnetic solution in a inhomogenous magnetic field and diffusion of the precipitator into protein solution.

3D Bioprinting Solutions and partners complete the first cultured meat biofabrication experiment on board the ISS.

3D Bioprinting Solutions biotechnology laboratory, Meal Source Technologies, as well as Aleph Farms and Finless Foods, are proud to announce successful result of the joint project which involved magnetic biofabrication of bovine, mummichog and rabbit myoblast/fibroblast constructs in order to lay the groundwork for renewable protein sources for long term manned missions. Additionally, results of this space experiment will be used to enhance the capacity for scalable cultured meat production on Earth.
