Bioprinting Personalized Tissues and Organs Within the Body: A Breakthrough in Regenerative Medicine; New Handheld Device Can Print Biocompatible Structures in Situ, with Potential to Revolutionize How Physicians Treat Damaged Tissue and Organs

In situ bioprinting, which involves 3D printing biocompatible structures and tissues directly within the body, has seen steady progress over the past few years. In a recent study, a team of researchers developed a handheld bioprinter that addresses key limitations of previous designs, i.e., the ability to print multiple materials and control the physicochemical properties of printed tissues. This new device will pave the way for a wide variety of applications in regenerative medicine, drug development, and testing, and custom orthotics and prosthetics. The open-access article was published in the July 2023 issue of Biofrabrication. The article is titled “A Handheld Bioprinter for Multi-Material Printing of Complex Constructs.”
