This 3D printer London scientists created, called the Vista 3D, is in the works to print organs “at the touch of a button.” It comes equipped with a nozzle that can 3D print a broad range of materials with high accuracy because of its advanced droplet ejection technology.
Experts say 3D printing of organs is only 5-10 years away! The challenge in printing human tissue is in cell treatment. “You need to get the right kind of cells to the printer and keep them in the right condition. The key thing is then to delicately dispense these cells into the right position without damaging them, and our technology is very good at that,” said Melbourn TTP’s managing director, Sam Hyde.
