New handheld bioprinter holds promise for treating serious burns

A team of researchers in Canada have successfully trialled a new handheld 3D skin printer, which treats severe burns by ‘printing’ new skins cells directly onto a wound. Although the new system is in the early stages of development, it may eventually provide a way to treat patients whose burn injuries are too extensive to...

Human skin pigmentation recreated – with a 3D bioprinter

A new method for controlling pigmentation in fabricated human skin has been developed by researchers from A*STAR’s Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP) at Nanyang Technological University. In their paper, publishing today in Biofabrication, the team show how they utilise 3D bioprinting to control the distribution of...
