New Material for Printing Highly Accurate Replacements for Real Bones

At Northwestern University researchers created a new material that can be used as an ink in a 3D printer to create highly accurate mimics of real bones. The investigators tested it by seeding the printed material with human stem cells and implanting it in animal models. It consists of 90% hydroxyapatite, a mineral form of calcium apatite naturally […] This post New Material for Printing Highly Accurate Replacements for Real Bones appeared first on Medgadget.
