Invetech 3D bio-printer brings ’tissue on demand’… New Kidney Anyone?



Invetech just introduced the first production model 3D bio-printer which might revolutionize the way we see fitness for the future… replaceable body parts anyone?

What you’re looking at is a machine capable of arranging human cells and artificial scaffolds into complex three-dimensional structures, which result in such wonderful things as replacement liver and kidney tissue, or such simple niceties as artificially grown teeth.

Organovo, a regenerative medicine company focused on delivering breakthrough human tissue printing technology and creating tissue on demand for research and surgical applications will be the company responsible for promoting the new 3D bio-printer hardware.

This new tech reminds me about Robin Williams from Bicentennial Man.
