Zortrax is a Polish developer of comprehensive 3D printing solutions. It has built a strong position on the global market of desktop 3D printers, while also offering dedicated filaments, Z-SUITE software and additional devices to improve the printing process and post processing.
What 3D printers are used for medical?
One of the many types of 3D printing that is used in the medical device field is bioprinting. Rather than printing using plastic or metal, bioprinters use a computer-guided pipette to layer living cells, referred to as bio-ink, on top of one another to create artificial living tissue in a laboratory.
What are the benefits of 3D printing organs?
Some of the primary benefits of 3D printing lie in its capability of mass-producing scaffold structures, as well as the high degree of anatomical precision in scaffold products. This allows for the creation of constructs that more effectively resemble the microstructure of a natural organ or tissue structure.
What organs can be 3D printed?
Currently the only organ that was 3D bioprinted and successfully transplanted into a human is a bladder. The bladder was formed from the hosts bladder tissue.
Where is bioprinting used today?
It is mainly used in connection with drug research and most recently as cell scaffolds to help repair damaged ligaments and joints. Bioprinting has been used in medicine since around 2007 and has been employed to help study or recreate almost every tissue, cartilage, and organ in the body.
Who will benefit from 3D bioprinting?
Bioprinting could replace organ donors. – With 3D bioprinting, all of those patients could have received their organs in a matter of not years, but days. Using bioprinting technology, scientists are developing techniques to print living organs like livers, kidneys, lungs, and any other organ our body needs.
Can We 3D print humans?
No one has printed fully functional, transplantable human organs just yet, but scientists are getting closer, making pieces of tissue that can be used to test drugs and designing methods to overcome the challenges of recreating the body’s complex biology.
What is the future of bioprinting?
The global 3-D bioprinting market is projected to grow from $651 million in 2019 to $1.65 billion by 2024, according to a 2019 report by Research and Markets, an Ireland-based firm. As demand for bioprinters and novel biomaterials escalates, the costs of many of these technologies are declining.
