Fair Oaks, California, June 11th, 2012 – – Some pretty amazing technologies are coming to life.  What was thought of just fifty years ago as wild ideas, and way out science fiction, is becoming a reality.

The first commerical ink bioprinter on the market.

I’m talking about duplicating human cells to make new skin, heart tissue, liver replacements, and smoke free “healthy” lungs, just to name a few of the organs we’ll be able to replicate and transplant. With the rising number of people around the world, waiting for an organ donor, this technology can’t come soon enough.

This first-of-its-kind bioprinter will allow lab technicians to take a sample of your healthy tissue, and duplicate it into new cells. Then using a 3-D printer from Organovo, Inc. (OTC–ONVO) an exact match can be produced, and used in surgeries to repair or replace damaged and injured tissue.          

“The “ink” in the bioprinting process employed by Organovo is composed of spheres packed with tens of thousands of human cells. These spheres are assembled or “printed” on sheets of organic biopaper. By precisely placing the cells with the bioprinter, and providing them with the proper natural developmental cues, they do exactly what they do in nature: they self-assemble into fully formed, functional tissue.”

Organovo, Inc. received the 2011 Engineering Innovation Award.

Hopefully in the near future, 3-D bioprinting will not only be a life saver for those who need a transplant, but it will create hundreds of jobs for American workers. One can only continue to hope, and dream of what the future holds.

Organovo, Inc. is focused on delivering breakthrough three-dimensional biology capabilities to create tissue on demand for research and surgical applications. As the first company with a three-dimensional tissue technology that works across tissue types. Learn more visit: (http://www.organovo.com)
