The main goal of this work was to print living cells with an open-source printer, part of the new logic of personalized regenerative medicine. The presented study provides skin equivalent 3D printing proof of concept with strong indicators such as viable cells integration and generation of a 3D network of neo-secretion ECM (Extra-Cellular Matrix), making… [read more]

For some though, skin disease and trauma make life itchy, embarrassing, and devastatingly painful–and they can be potentially life… [read more]
Just after announcing the successful 3D printing of kidney cells, bioprinting firm Organovo has decided to add 3D printed skin to its portfolio of printable organ tissues. The company has signed a Research Collaboration Agreement with L’Oreal USA Products, Inc to 3D print skin models using their NovoGen Bioprinting Platform.
