Russia's Skolkovo 3D-Prints Thyroid for Mouse, HumanOrgans Could Be Next

A company in the Skolkovo Innovation Center made an artificial thyroid gland using a 3D printer, which was then successfully implanted into a live mouse, Skolkovo’s Vice President Kirill Kaem said

Russian 3D-bioprinted thyroid gland implant proves functional in mice

A Moscow laboratory has conducted the first successful organ translation using a unique Russian 3D-printing technology. The breakthrough could potentially help millions suffering from thyroid disorders – and paves the way for printing other human organs.

RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW TO 3D PRINT WORKING THYROID GLANDS FOR MICE

The budding industry of 3D bioprinting took a massive leap forward last week after a Russian bioprinting company announced a series of successful tests on a 3D-printed mouse thyroid. Speaking at the Biofabrication 2015 conference in Utrecht, Netherlands, 3D Bioprinting Solutions head of research Vladimir Mironov officially presented the highly anticipated results, shedding light on the company’s production process.

Russian scientists to unveil 3D bioprinted transplantable organ in March 2015

As many of you will know, the 3D printing revolution is quickly expanding into new technological avenues that many people would not quickly associate with additive manufacturing. Perhaps the biggest challenge among them is 3D bioprinting, or the creation of cell tissue. Tests have shown bioprinting to be potentially capable of producing blood vessels, vascular networks, and other transplantable tissues, while some scientists are even dreaming of 3D printed hamburgers.

Russian scientists use first-ever 3D printed thyroid gland in successful transplant surgery

Last March, we wrote about Professor Vladimir Mironov’s 3D printed medical breakthrough: the world’s first 3D printed transplantable organ, to be used on a mouse. This week, it was reported that not only did the mouse thyroid transplant surgery go relatively smoothly, but that the 3D printed thyroid gland is completely functional.

Shoot to heal, not to kill: Russia’s bioprinting leaders dream of a new national export

Mironov, whose company hit the headlines last year – and again this week – for its successful creation of a mouse thyroid construct using a 3D bioprinter, declined to give away any trade secrets of the new tissue gun to the audience of an international bioprinting conference held at the Skolkovo Foundation on Thursday, but offered a comprehensive overview of developments in what has been described as the third industrial revolution.

The Top 15 Bioprinters

Here we are again with our Top 10 lists of 3D printers. This time we ventured into the exceedingly complex world of 3D bioprinting. Most commercially available 3D bioprinters are based on some proprietary version of a basic syringe/pressure-based extrusion of both paste-like polymeric substances and hydrogels (also known as bioinks in certain cases), which are basically gel-like substances containing high quantities of water and living cells.
