WSU researchers 3D printed glucose biosensors

Posted on Updated on

WSU researchers create 3D-printed glucose biosensors. According to Arda Gozen and Yuehe Lin, faculty in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, the research has been published in the journal Analytica Chimica Acta,” 3D printing can enable manufacturing of biosensors tailored specifically to individual patients. This can potentially bring down the cost. For large‑scale use, the printed biosensors will need to be integrated with electronic components on a wearable platform. But, manufacturers could use the same 3D printer nozzles used for printing the sensors to print electronics and other components of a wearable medical device, helping to consolidate manufacturing processes and reduce costs, even more.

Our 3D printed glucose sensor will be used as the wearable sensor for replacing painful finger pricking. Since this is a noninvasive, needleless technique for glucose monitoring, it will be easier for children’s glucose monitoring”.

3D Printing Pen for the Christmas tree decoration

Posted on Updated on

We always think about how much is the 3D Printers are. Buying expensive 3D printers is too much.
Why don’t we start with the less expensive creative 3D pen? We can have the 3D printed pen’s creation for the Christmas tree decoration:)
I think it will be amazing.
3D printed Christmas ornaments. According to u Tube channel Make Anything, “Check out first 3D printing pen experience using the 3Doodler Create! Get the 3Doodler Create”.

3D printing for environment less waste, more sustainability

Posted on Updated on

According to Cartridge World, “3D printing also has the ability to create particularly fine details on its products, which could be useful in building artificial coral reefs to replace those lost by rising water temperatures and “inconsiderate tourist behaviour”. Previously, biologists have dropped concrete blocks into shallow waters in the hope of recreating reefs, yet studies have shown much marine life prefers surfaces with small holes and crevices to give protection from predators something 3D printing would be able to create”.
