Organovo: 3d Printing Living Tissue

—————————————————-

Organovo is a medical research company headquartered in San Diego which designs and develops three dimensional human tissue. The living 3D printed tissue can be used for testing drugs before giving the drugs to a real person.  Organovo uses a proprietary bioprinting platform called NovoGen for 3D printing tissue.

Pharmaceutical companies conventionally perform testing on animals or on cells in petri-dishes.  Both methods of testing are very different from testing on a living person.  Therefore several clinical trials fail when tried on living person even if they were considered successful on animals or cells in petri-dish.  Organovo technology bridges this gap by providing 3D tissue models that are much closer to a living person.  Pharmaceutical companies can use the 3D tissues developed using this technology for testing.

In 2014 Organovo announced commercial release of exVive3DTM Human Liver Tissue for preclinical drug discovery testing.  In April 2015, Organovo presented results of 3D printing in vitro 3D kidney tissue at the 2015 Experimental Biology conference in Boston.  In 2015 L’Oreal signed an agreement with Organovo to produce 3D printed skin for use in testing of cosmetics.  The long term goal of Organovo’s 3D bioprinting technology is to be able to create organs for transplantation.

Strata 3D University

—————————–

Strata 3D University is an online resource offering tutorials and learning resources for Strata software products.  The primary Strata product covered is Design 3D. Design 3D is a professional level 3D modeling and animation software offered by Strata. Strata 3D University offers more than a thousand tutorial videos.  They offer a month-to-month subscription or a 12 month subscription.

Design 3D is a software offered by Strata that allows modeling of 3D objects that can be 3D printed. Design 3D allows exporting designs created to file formats that are accepted by many 3D printers. Since Design 3D is a very versatile tool for 3D modeling, not all designs created using Design 3D may be suitable for 3D printing.  Designers have to follow certain guidelines to create designs that can be 3D printed.
