New handheld bioprinter holds promise for treating serious burns
from Institute of Physics via MedicalXpress
A team of researchers in Canada have successfully trialled a new handheld 3-D skin printer, which treats severe burns by 'printing' new skins cells directly onto a wound. Although the new system is in the early stages of development, it may eventually provide a way to treat patients whose burn injuries are too extensive to allow skin grafts. The results are reported today in the IOP Publishing journal Biofabrication.
