The printer reproduces the natural structure of the skin complete with the outer layer.
A prototype of a 3D bio-printer that can print completely identical to human skin, demonstrated scientists from Spain.
“Despite the fact that leather can be used for testing chemicals, cosmetic products, or in research, she is also suitable for transplant patients,” – says the publication.
Therefore, created the printer reproduces the natural structure of the skin complete with the outer layer.
According to experts, the key to 3D-bioprinting is biochemia. When the skin is created, injectors with biological components are used instead of colored ink and cartridges.
According to one of the researchers of the Juan Francisco del Kagiso, the key to making technology had understanding of how to mix and apply biomaterials to cells to function. The leather is printed layer by layer, repeating the structure of real human skin.
