3D printers may one day become a permanent fixture of the operating theatre after University of New South Wales (UNSW) scientists showed they could print bone-like structures containing living cells.
Scientists from UNSW Sydney have developed a ceramic-based ink that may allow surgeons in the future to 3D-print bone parts complete with living cells that could be used to repair damaged bone tissue. Using a 3D-printer that deploys a special ink made up of calcium phosphate, the scientists developed…
