Harvard scientists develop algae-infused bioink to enhance the viability of bioprinted tissues

Scientists from Harvard Medical College have developed a novel algae-based bioink that when 3D printed into mushy tissue constructions, demonstrates enhanced cell viability.  The group shaped their bioink by combining a photosynthetic algae and human liver cells right into a hydrogel matrix, then used it to 3D print hexagonal constructions that includes lifelike liver ‘lobules.’ Because of the algae’s pure oxygen-emitting tendencies, the bioprinted human cells multiplied, displaying elevated performance, and producing liver-specific proteins.  In future, the researchers consider that their new bioprinting method may very well be utilized in…
