Imagine 3D printed full color artificial teeth for permanent use. Why not? This question we asked ourselves two years ago. And our scientific curiosity resulted in first multi material and -color 3D jetted tooth model.

Driving vision is to bring dentistry on a new level of multi-material and colourful 3D printing.
This presentation will provide some insights on the unique jetting possibilities of biocompatible dental resins in combination with 3D workflow software.
Partnership for bio-printing of hair, signed by Poietis and L’Oreal. L’Oreal has been committed to tissue engineering for almost 30 years and holds unique knowledge and expertise in the field of bio-printing of hair. With this exclusive research partnership, L’Oreal and Poietis are giving themselves the means to pursue a new scientific challenge: bio-printing a hair follicle, the small organ that produces hair, using a bio-printer. Continue reading “Partnership for bio-printing of hair, signed by Poietis and L’Oreal”
Researchers in AMBER, the Science Foundation Ireland funded materials science centre, hosted in Trinity College Dublin, have created a process to support 3D printing of new bone material. Continue reading “AMBER researchers create 3D bioprinting technology to provide alternatives to bone grafts”
Printing replacement body parts may sound like something out of a sci-fi novel, but since 3D printing was introduced in the 1980s, scientists have been aspiring to make this a reality. Now, a team from Texas in the US has developed a super tough biomaterial that could be used to print load-bearing body parts such as knee cartilage.
The Texas team 3D printed a meniscus out of an alginate-containing hydrogel Continue reading “US Researchers Develop Biomaterial that Could Be used to Print Load-Bearing Body Parts such as Knee Cartilage”
Pelvic organ prolaps (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) are common disorders affecting millions of women worldwide. Continue reading “European project BIP-UPy is about biomedical implants”
The possibility of engineering self-replicating nano-materials has emerged due to research into DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), a self-replicating molecule whose component parts – nucleotides – have specific chemical interactions that allow for the design of self-assembled structures. Continue reading “DNA research paves way for self-replicating materials”
A Dutch company has developed a way to make customized bone implants using 3D printer technology. When a person needs a bone transplant, the most common method used today is the insertion of titanium plates or cutting bone from the patient and re-positioning it elsewhere.

Cranioplasty is the art and science of repairing defects or deformity in the skull. The reasons to perform this type of delicate surgery range from traumatic injuries to surgeries to birth defects. Continue reading “Cranioplasty Welcomes 3D Printed Molds for Reconstructive Surgery in Russia”
Exploiting graphene’s exceptional electronic, mechanical, and thermal properties for practical devices requires fabrication techniques that allow the direct manipulation of graphene on micro- and macroscopic scales. Finding the ideal technique to achieve the desired graphene patterning remains a major challenge. Continue reading “3D-printed Graphene Eyed for Electronic, Biomedical Applications”
Researchers are working on creating a so-called DNA ‘smart glue’ that could one day be used to hold together 3-D-printed materials, such as tissues or even organs grown in the laboratory. Continue reading “DNA smart glue could fix organs together”
