Sir, here your liver: behind the scenes of bioprinting

8 years, 4 months ago
Say goodbye to lists of donors and shortage of bodies. The biotechnology firm created the printer printing blood vessels, using cells of the patient. In the future this device has every chance of creation of the whole bodies.

The most part of bodies in a human body is penetrated by veins so capability to print blood vessels is one of the major structural elements for creation of the whole bodies. The printed veins will begin to check for animals soon, and, eventually, clinical tests on the person will be carried out. If everything passes well, in several years you will be able to replace the spoiled veins (for example, as a result of injections or chemotherapy) with the veins printed by request from own cages.
