Organovo Bio-Printing Human Tissue?
November 27, 2012 in Health
“Organovo turned science fiction into science fact by developing the world’s first commercial 3D bioprinter to print human tissues. Invetech partnered with Organovo to help them transform their core science into a reliable and commercially viable instrument. This was the inspiration for start-up company Organovo as they set out to build the world’s first production 3D bio-printer. For decades the goal of tissue engineers has been to advance beyond simple two-dimensional cell cultures to creating three-dimensional organs. Organovo had a vision to produce a 3D bioprinter that would make this dream a reality, providing surgeons with tissue on demand and helping solve the global shortage of human organs.”
