Success in 3D bio-printing of cartilage

A team of researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy has managed to generate cartilage tissue by printing stem cells using a 3D bio-printer. The fact that the stem cells survived being printed in this manner is a success in itself. In … READ MORE

3D printable implants may ease damaged knees

Printable hydrogel matches the strength and elasticity of human cartilage. A cartilage-mimicking material created by researchers at Duke University may one day allow surgeons to 3D print replacement knee parts that are custom-shaped … READ MORE
