4D bioprinting and biotechnology use advanced technology to create living tissues and organs for medical applications.
4D bioprinting uses specialized 3D printers capable of producing structures that can change over time, adding a fourth dimension to traditional 3D printing. These structures can be made from living cells, creating biological tissues and organs that can be used for transplantation, drug testing, and disease modeling. Biotechnology is a broader field encompassing various techniques and technologies to study biological systems. Biotechnology can be used to develop new drugs, vaccines, and therapies and improve our understanding of biological processes and systems.
For developing new material using 4D bioprinting, biotechnology to create functional tissues and organs. Researchers use various biotechnology techniques, such as genetic and tissue engineering, to design and produce living structures with specific functions and properties.
According to ROKIT HEALTHCARE, a 4D Bioprinting and Biotechnology company based in South Korea,¨4D bioprinting with bio-scaffold, stem cell and bio-ink is one of the most promising solutions currently explored for regenerative medicine as an alternative to organ transplantation.¨
