CollPlant Stock: Collagen, 3D Bioprinting, and BioInks

What attracts many new investors to the stock market is a really exciting story which involves the promise of future riches. Outside of pharmaceutical stocks, you rarely find companies worth billions without meaningful revenues. We say “meaningful” because sometimes a company will generate small amounts of revenues forever without actually doing squat. That’s why we […]

Eight 3D Bioprinting Companies for Medical Solutions

In the United States, nearly 107,000 people are on waitlists for organ transplants. The problem is even bigger worldwide, with millions of people waiting to get their hands on an organ. The trouble is that there’s only so many organs to go around. While China is filling in the tremendous demand with its $1 billion […]

Taking a Second Look at 3D Bioprinting Stock CELLINK

The fifth biggest country in Europe by area also happens to be both innovative and productive. The 2020 Innovation Index ranks Sweden as second in the world for innovation (trailing the Swiss), and her per capita gross national product (GNP) is among the highest in the world.

Why Organovo Stock Continues to Drop

We’ve been writing about disruptive technologies like 3D bioprinting for the past seven years now. The promise of bioprinted human tissues is something that wall street analysts have been patiently waiting for a while now, at least when it comes to Organovo Holdings (ONVO).

Can 3D Printing of Alternative Proteins Take Off?

Regular readers will be familiar with Gartner’s Hype Cycle for emerging technologies, which graphically represents the ups and downs that most new technologies undergo, as they move from the “that’s super cool” stage to “what’s it good for” stage to “here’s how we can actually make money” stage.

In our recent piece on artificial intelligence for drug discovery, we noted how the number of players in this space has exploded to more than 125 startups using machine learning to improve some aspect of the drug […]

A 3D Bioprinting Stock That’s Not Organovo

One thing we’ve noticed over the years is that the way we imagine a disruptive technology being commercialized is rarely how things actually transpire. We’re seeing that now as 3D printing business models and technologies evolve over time into something different. The same can be said for the companies that are involved in disruptive technologies where […]

BioBots is Selling a 3D Bioprinter for $10,000

In August of 2013, we wrote about a company called EnvisionTEC and their 286 pound 3D Bioprinter which was selling for under $200,000. At this price point, 3D bioprinting remains largely out of reach for most consumers who might want to play around with this new technology but don’t have that type of cash laying […]

An Organovo Article With a Negative Spin

We’ve been watching Organovo for a while now. For retail investors who want to invest in 3D bioprinting, Organovo (ONVO) is the only pure play in town. However, this doesn’t mean they have a monopoly by any means. German startup EnvisionTEC has been selling their 3D Bio-Printer commercially since 2001 at a price point under $200,000 USD. At […]

Should Organovo Investors be Worried About Insphero?

Several months ago, we published an article titled “Organs-on-Chips: An Alternative to 3D Bioprinting?” in which we speculated that 3D Bioprinting small samples of organ tissues to use for drug testing could be displaced by organs-on-chips. Organovo (NYSEMKT:ONVO), the only publicly traded 3D Bioprinting company, commands a market cap of over $500 million with just minuscule […]
