3D printed a “rabbit-sized” heart

Posted on Updated on

According to BIOLIFE4D, “We have developed a proprietary bioink using a very specific composition of different extracellular matrix compounds that closely replicate the properties of the mammalian heart. Further, it has developed a novel and unique bioprinting algorithm, consisting of printing parameters optimized for the whole heart. Coupling its proprietary bioink with patient-derived cardiomyocytes and its enabling bioprinting technology, BIOLIFE4D is able to bioprint a heart that, while smaller in size, replicates many of the features of a human heart. With this platform technology in place, BIOLIFE4D is now well-positioned to build upon this platform and work towards the development of a full-scale human heart.”

According to Tel Aviv University scientists,”they used 3D printing technology to create a heart made of human tissue in just three hours, which could be tested on animals in the future.
TAU is at it again with big ideas that save lives! Our researchers have become the first scientists to 3-D print a human heart with tissue and vessels”.
