Brinter® compiles multi-part Guide to Bioprinting
Turku, Finland: – Pioneering modular multi-material bioprinting platform developer and manufacturer, Brinter®, is authoring a comprehensive six-part Guide to Bioprinting.
Part 1 of the ‘What is Bioprinting’ series, posted as blogs on the Brinter® website, covers the History of Bioprinting, tracing the technology back to the birth of 3D printing in the 1960s and evolving into bioprinting with the work of Japanese pioneer Hideo Kodama in the early 1980s.
The first chapter in the series also defines what bioprinting is and its potential applications in medicine and health care.
It shows how computer assisted 3D Bioprinting of living cells and support structures by applying materials in a predetermined form and structure enables creation of living tissue as substitutes, as well as having major implications for pharmaceutical development, by providing means of testing and producing drugs at lower cost and with closer biological relevance.
The article also discusses the potential for bioprinting to provide full bone and skin grafts, organ patches, and even full replacement organs.
