According to the Technion researchers and Prof. Shulamit Levenberg, “complex and precise artificial tissues that significantly improve their integration in the target organ. The new printer is able to obtain the information from a patient’s CT scans and translate it into printing three-dimensional tissue that exactly suits an injured area. Furthermore, it provides tools to design scaffolds and cells that will grow into tissue.
The printer has different printing heads, each with a different feature such as temperature or UV light. The idea is that you can polymerize the bio-ink while you print. This means the printer is able to simultaneously create tissue from various materials including hydrogels, thermoplastic materials, and ointments. You start with liquid and while printing, you can solidify it in order to be able to make it a structure. So the material, the bio-ink, can be polymerized either by a change of temperature, UV light, light or by mixing different components”.
The idea to purchase the Vevor 3D Latte Coffee Printer came from the Creme’s owner, Adam Patterson, who was introduced to the idea while traveling in Israel, “Adam saw it in Israel, and he loved the idea, so he ordered one for here,” said the Creme’s general manager Ashley Vanover. When you come in, we can take your photo right there using a webcam, and then your photo prints on top of your drink. It was quite a process to get it running, I’m not going to lie, Cox said. I had to troubleshoot some of the programmings, and get some people to help me with it”.
