Five key factors, in addition to manufacturing, are essential to a good idea making it from an academic achievement to part of a clinician’s armamenterium. These factors are not in the engineering, scientific, or medical curricula in sufficient depth for one to master them without additional training or experience. They are, nevertheless, at least as important as the scientific and engineering foundations of a TEMP (or other advanced therapy) with respect to full commercialization.
Scientists have taken a major step closer to being able to 3D bioprint functional organs by devising a method of rebuilding components of the human heart. FluidForm, a new ARMI member, is making this technology available for research and commercial applications, with the ultimate goal to revolutionize regenerative medicine and impact millions of Americans every year.
Progenesis Technologies LLC, a Huntington, WV bio-engineering company, says producing customized molecular scaffolds from alginate products has a “fundamental advantage over seaweed derived alginates in cost efficiencies and customization for various applications,” according to Gardiner F.H.
