Injectable tissue patch may help repair damaged heart

Scientists have developed an injectable tissue bandage smaller than a postage stamp that can repair damaged hearts. Repairing heart tissue destroyed by a heart attack or medical condition with regenerative cells or tissues usually requires invasive open-heart surgery. Researchers at the University of Toronto in Canada have developed a technique that lets them use a…

ClearCaps uses 3D printers to produce 250 dental aligners in 24 hours

ClearCaps, a clear aligner brand founded in Berlin, Germany, is using 3D printers to accelerate its large volume manufacturing operations. ClearCaps also uses state-of-the-art 3D software for planning and tracking of its cases.

3D printed brain tissue could help fight brain disorders

The brain is amazingly complex, with around 86 billion nerve cells. The challenge for researchers to create bench-top brain tissue from which they can learn about how the brain functions, is an extremely difficult one. Researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) have taken a step closer to meeting this challenge,…
