Muscles and bones new ‘Bioprinter’ made with
#Cosmoread: A new 3D printer in patients living tissue structures that one day could be used to replace injured or diseased tissue can print.
“With further development, this technology and the potential living organ tissue for surgical implantation structures can be used to print,” said Dr. Anthony Atala, the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Director of the new printer describes a study co-author, said in testimony.
This photo shows the new printer printed with an ear structure. In experiments, the researchers under the skin of mice implanted structures such ear tissue will survive to see the structure. They found that the structures had to survive, and even two months after implantation, the printed structures by special thanks to microchannels had developed blood vessels.

3D-printed jaw bone structure
The image printed with a jawbone fragment reveals new printer. The size and shape of the piece is the size and shape of the pieces that can be used in human patients for jaw reconstruction matches. (Credit: Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine)
This photo 3D-printed ear and jaw bone structures shows. The new printing system uses data from CT and MRI scans of the patients are able to tailor-make tissue. For example, if a patient is missing an ear, a new matching ear printer based on their structure intact ear scans print. (Credit: Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine)
Printer at work
This photo shows a printing system at work printing jawbone structure. The new printer deposits and water-based gels, plastic-like material tissue cells that are the size as. This process allows to print tissue retain its shape and ensures the printing process does not damage the cells. (Credit: Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine)
Big, strong tissue
During the printing process, the image of the jaw bone structure shows a close-up view. Researchers tissue and organ structures, large and relatively new printer that is simple and delicate tissues that researchers are stronger than the first engineer to print allows.

More research needed
This photo shows another bioprinted jawbone structure. So far, the researchers have made only some tissue and bone structures in the rodents have been able to transplant. These structures can be transplanted into human patients before much more research is needed, the researchers said. (Credit: Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine)
