Scientists Find New Material Mixture for Bioprinting Cartilage

For me, human tissue bioprinting is the most fascinating frontier in 3D printing, albeit the most complex and difficult one. The additive processes for this application are similar to any other 3D printing process but the materials they process and the structures that need to be assembled are so much more complex. A new material combination developed by researchers from ETH Zürich, AO Research Institute Davos in Switzerland and INNOVENT in Germany, however, holds great promise for one of the first feasible applications of bioprinted tissues: cartilage.
