UK scientists use 3D printer to print human stem cells

Sure, 3D printing is cool and wonderful, and even can make awesome three-dimensional business cards. 3-D printers can also produce gun parts, aircraft wings, food and a lot more.

Perhaps also 3-D Printer would be able soon to save your life too! How is it possible?

In a new study, six researchers from the University of Edinburgh have successfully printed human embryonic stem cells with a “valve-based cell printer”. The printer uses bio-inks to fabricate groups of viable stem cells that retain their ability to become any type of cell in your body. The new printing method could be used to make 3D human tissues for testing new drugs, grow organs, or ultimately print cells directly inside the body.

stem_cells_evolutionStem cells are valued by biological scientists for research because they are “pluripotent:” they can develop into almost anything a human body needs such as skin cells, muscle tissue, or internal organs.

Essentially, the scientists printed arrays of stem cells that could be used in future in-vitro organ regenerations. Basically, you won’t get a new motor, you’ll get a on-site re-build … and you won’t have to take the body apart to do it, either.
Along the same lines, the scientists speculate that “direct in-vivo cell printing for tissue regeneration” will become possible, allowing doctors of the future to heal internal injuries without surgery.

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs much more consideration. I’ll probably be again to read much more, thanks for that info.
