Additive manufacturing processes as a hope for long-term organ production

Additive manufacturing is characterized by the layer-by-layer construction of components. In 3D bioprinting, living structures are reconstructed layer by layer to ensure that the behavior of naturally living systems can be replicated. Previous research focused on creating 3D-printed hearts failed because the cells were unable to contract synchronously, ruling out transplantation.

A new concept now promises hope for the production of 3D-printed organs. Here, it should be possible to print cells from all directions, thus ensuring an enormous degree of flexibility. This flexibility should enable human tissue, which consists of countless individual cells with individual cell-cell connections, to be optimally reproduced during artificial production.

Facts at a glance

The waiting list for donor organs is long. In Germany, around 9100 people are currently on the life-saving list and wait daily to receive a suitable donor organ. Although people’s willingness to donate organs increases every year, the number of organs needed exceeds the number made available enormously. According to current statistics, there are 10.9 organ donors per million inhabitants in Germany.
