There are many forms of cutting-edge technology that are currently present in today’s medical environment. One of the most unique, however, is the technology of bioprinting. Here are just a few of the benefits that you can achieve when using 3D Bioprinting Solutions.
Replacing Donated Organs
When 3D bioprinting is used, there will be no need to have to wait for a matching donor organ. Many people die waiting for an organ that matches what they need to survive. While the technology is not quite there yet, scientists are working on ways of print-on-demand organs such as kidneys, livers, and even hearts. This will truly be a gamechanger when it comes to the possibilities of what medicine can offer.
No More Cell Rejection
When organs are transplanted in the traditional way, there is a high chance that they will be rejected. By rejection, it is meant that the recipient’s own immune system the new organ because it has identified it as a foreign object. However, with 3D bioprinting solutions, the cell culture comes from the patient themselves, so there is no chance of rejection since it is literally printed from the patient’s own cells.
No More Testing On Animals
Since some products still need to be tested, scientists had to find a solution that could lessen the reliance on animals or humans. Thankfully, with bioprinting, tissue samples can be printed on demand. Since these samples are not living beings, there is no ethical concern whatsoever.
