With the advent of 3D printing, brilliant people are coming up with interesting ways to utilize this type of technology.
Recently, a company called BioBots piqued a lot of serious interest. According to them, their 3D printers are not merely for printing cute colorful items but they intend to use it for the good of mankind – by making it possible to print human organs.
Their revolutionary 3D printer called the BioBot 1 is now available for the public. And among its unique capabilities is to create objects using living cells.
The BioBot 1 allows you to print your own organ.
Giving it a closer look, keen observers will discern that the BioBot 1 bears resemblance with the MakerBot and PrintBot devices. However, this does not dispense metal or plastic because it uses “bio-inks” which are made of collagen or other living cells.
According to BioBots CEO Danny Cabrera:
“The Holy Grail is to develop fully functioning replacement organs out of a patient’s own cells, eliminating the organ waiting list.”
As of present time, U.S. reports claim that an average waiting time for a liver transplant is around 149 days for adults and 86 days for children.
On top of that, the BioBot 1 is also capable of printing test medicines.
How much does this cost? Well, the BioBot 1 is publicly available for $10,000 – not a very expensive product considering its unique capabilities and amazing benefits.
Here’s a TechCrunch video about BioBot 1:
We hope this technology further gets developed. This can potentially revolutionize the medical industry as we know it.
