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

Growing Windpipes with Harvard Apparatus (HARTV)

This concept of growing organs is not only feasible through the use of 3D printers but also through bioreactor technology. A company focused on commercializing this type of technology […]
