3D Bioprinting Solutions and partners complete the first cultured meat biofabrication experiment on board the ISS.

3D Bioprinting Solutions biotechnology laboratory, Meal Source Technologies, as well as Aleph Farms and Finless Foods, are proud to announce successful result of the joint project which involved magnetic biofabrication of bovine, mummichog and rabbit myoblast/fibroblast constructs in order to lay the groundwork for renewable protein sources for long term manned missions. Additionally, results of this space experiment will be used to enhance the capacity for scalable cultured meat production on Earth.

Meanwhile, a sophisticated holistic cuvette system for delivering living objects to the ISS, performing biofabrication, and transferring bioprinted constructs back to Earth has been developed.</p> <p style="box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 15px; -webkit-font-smoothing: inherit; font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.4em; font-family: &quot;Helvetica Neue&quot;, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Rapid biofabrication of 3-D organ constructs of thyroid gland and cartilage using tissue spheroids (i.e., thyreospheres and chondrospheres) in the conditions of natural space microgravity will be launched during space experiments. After the return of bioprinted constructs to Earth, histological tests will be conducted to examine the internal structure.</p> <div class="editor-info" style="box-sizing: border-box; font-style: italic; font-family: &quot;Helvetica Neue&quot;, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"></div>
