Transcript of 3D BioPrinting

Tissue engineering is to produce functional cell, organ, or tissue to repair replace or improve a biological function that has been lost by disease or injury.
Bio scaffolding is using cells to make a 3D structure to encourage cell bonding.
"Every 30 second, a patient dies from a disease that could be treated with tissue replacement." This shocking observation, presented by Dr. Anthony Atala, emphasizes the need for regenerative technology.
3D BioPrinting
What is 3D Bioprinting?
3D Bioprinting is printing living cells layer by layer using living tissue to build replacement skin, body parts, and eventually organs.
Hype Cycle 2013 in Innovation Trigger phase
By: Natalya Goldina
Who would be interested and what is the market for 3D bioprinting?
Medical Schools
Cardiovascular Field- artificial heart, veins, pacemaker, valves, veins, etc.
Pharmaceutical testing drugs
Manufacturing prosthetics
Urology, gynecology, nephrology
Tissue grafting
Cosmetic surgery
Orthopedic surgery
Who would be interested and what is the market for 3D bioprinting?
Alternative to donor waiting list
Will take 5-10 years to be fully implemented in hospitals.
How 3D Printing Works
1. Take a picture
2. Create a blueprint
3. Make the ink.
4. Print
5. Layers of cells sick together with help of UV light.
6. Into the incubator.
Eliminate the waiting list for organ transplant
New drugs can be tested on bioprinted organs
Also 3D bioprinted organs can be used in medical schools
Cost around $200,000
Possibility of 3D printed drug
People will become less concerned with their health
Case Study
Research group of Proffesor Paul Gatenholm at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering are researching new possibilities of organ regeneration and tissue engineering.
3D Bioprinting technology is about ten years away from being fully functional
Machine prototype need a lot of research and testing
Technology is very expensive now to be implemented in hospitals and physicians offices.
