Russian scientists to unveil 3D bioprinted transplantable organ in March 2015

As many of you will know, the 3D printing revolution is quickly expanding into new technological avenues that many people would not quickly associate with additive manufacturing. Perhaps the biggest challenge among them is 3D bioprinting, or the creation of cell tissue. Tests have shown bioprinting to be potentially capable of producing blood vessels, vascular networks, and other transplantable tissues, while some scientists are even dreaming of 3D printed hamburgers.

'3D Bioprinting Solutions' to reveal first Russian 3D bioprinter in late October

While there are a number of areas in the field of 3D printing technology that haven't yet been mastered, one the biggest challenges currently around must be bioprinting. To be sure, there are a number of 3D bioprinters out there already – only this week we reported 3Dynamic Systems and their two bioprinters – but there is still a long way to go before this technology becomes affordable, available and commercially interesting.

Organ printing

A printable organ is an artificially constructed device designed for organ replacement, produced using 3D printing techniques. The primary purpose of printable organs is in transplantation. Research is currently being conducted on artificial heart, kidney, and liver structures, as well as other major organs. For more complicated organs, such as the heart, smaller constructs such as heart valves have also been the subject of research. Some printed organs have already reached clinical implementation, and primarily include hollow structures such as the bladder, as well as vascular structures such as urine tubes.

Honey, I printed a thyroid gland

Russia's 3D Bioprinting Solutions laboratory, the first facility to successfully print a mouse's thyroid gland, is getting ready to transplant artificial organs to living mice. If successful, the experiment could pave the way for the production of 3D-printed human glands.
