3D printing uses layers of materials to create 3D objects and it is used in many industries such as making consumer goods, forensic pathology, and biomedicine. It can make things like medications, prosthetic ears, and artificial organs. A recent scientific journal publication analyses the CAS Content Collection™ to provide an overview of the 3D printing in biomedicine and highlights the trends in 3D printing technologies, materials and innovations in tissue and organ fabrication, implants and prosthetics, pharmaceuticals and beyond.
While there are still challenges in 3D printing tissue and organs such as donor site morbidity and graft failure but advances in bioinks, media use and the application of stem cells are helping to overcome these limitations. Learn more in our latest scientific journal publication as 3D printing in biomedicine continues to expand and grow.
