New biochemie will allow you to print living tissue right inside the human body

A team of American scientists from the California Institute Taraski, the Ohio state University and Pennsylvania state University have developed a new type biochannel for 3D printing of living tissues. Based on already tested the composition of living cells on a frame and catalysts for the growth, but now for curing of the ink is not required harmful ultraviolet radiation. The process occurs when the temperature of the human body and natural light.

The main advantage of new ink that can be applied directly inside the patient’s body. For example, to sew up the wound or reconstruct the fragments of vessels. 3D printer thus works as an analogue of the sewing machine, but instead of finished yarn prints it on the go. The needle makes a puncture in a soft tissue, put it into the hole drop of ink, seals the outside and adds another drop of ink, creating a sort of second node for the thread. That is printed in layers, from node to node, creating the final three dimensional design.

The authors argue that it is safe for humans, but for the operation of sufficient symbolic incision on the body. The print head controls the robot, so the precision placement of ink and not to worry. Cell viability is maintained at 71-77%, the frame retains the mechanical strength of not less than 21 days. Loose by integrating into the soft tissue 3-4 times higher than when the ink just on top of them.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
