3D printing bone with living cells.

Posted on Updated on

3D printing bone with living cells. The ink is made up of Calcium phosphate and the technique is called ´Ceramic omnidirectional bioprinting in cell suspensions or (COBICS).´
According to a bioengineer at UNSW’s School of Chemistry, Dr. Iman Roohani, “In contrast to previous materials, our technique offers a way to print constructs in situ which mimic the structure and chemistry of the bone. The opportunities are limitless.”

According to associate Professor Kristopher Kilian, ¨This produces a dry material that is then brought into a clinical setting or in a laboratory, where they wash it profusely and then add living cells to it.¨

The research is published in ´Advanced Functional Materials
