Believe it or not, 3 d printers will soon can print human skin
[abstract] now, some companies are working on a called biological printing processing technology, which USES biological cells and special products such as 3 d printer to print out the biological organs, industry experts said that by 2025, biological print size of the market could reach $1 billion.
Tencent inquiry on June 20, science and technology, perhaps in five years, a person's skin can be used 3 d technology for printing!This sounds a little inconceivable, but research is in progress, perhaps, one day it will come true.
Nowadays, some companies are working on a namedbiological
Printing of processing technology, which USES biological cells and special products such as 3 d printer to print out the biological organs, industry experts said that by 2025, biological print size of the market could reach $1 billion.
Printing as one of the high-tech manufacturing industry, biological organs after the relevant publicity has been overwhelming, now looks, beauty companies may also soon using printing techniques, for the development of related products, and even print out a person's skin.Cosmetics giant l 'oreal in actively promote biological print related research work, and in leading the development of this technology.The world's largest cosmetics company recently with biological printing technology companies in the United States in California Organovo cooperation, to develop 3 d printing technology of skin tissue.L 'oreal wants to print the body skin and used for product testing.
In fact, the last ten years, l 'oreal has been trying to make human body skin, to avoid a ban in Europe, the ban is prohibited to sell cosmetics by animal experiments.
However, nurture the skin is a slow and complicated process.Today, 3 d printing technology will accelerate the reproduction process of human skin.With the development of the technology, people will no longer need
to wait for the skin are developed in the laboratory, cosmetics companies will also be able to more quickly by printing the skin to create the corresponding model, but also the ability to create more powerful prototype.
The skin is very thin, for 3 d printing, making the skin will be a relatively easy process.3 d printers a syringe to organs along the line of mobile, and very slowly squeezed out of the cell solution.Layers, then increase to reach the thickness of the users want., market Research firm Lux Research company's technical adviser, director of the Persian, o (Arnold Bos) said: "through the syringe, it is possible to print out a variety of different types of skin. People will be able to make a sensitive skin, or the men's skin."
This trend will mean like l 'oreal company will create new products, and increase new revenue channels.In 2013 alone, l 'oreal company spent on r&d and innovation in spending nearly $1 billion.
Persian claimed that, in fact, researchers have been able to successfully print human skin, but commercial applications such as cosmetics test still need 5 years or so, which part of the reason is that scientists still need to eliminate in the process of printing the challenges faced by using biological cells.These challenges, however, won't make big companies, in fact, p&g also want to operate in this aspect.
Consumer goods companies are hoping to research institutions to submit 3 d print the opinions of the relevant research grants.Can replace the method of animal experiments, product innovation and security screening solutions are many consumer goods company pursues.To this, procter & gamble company all over the world life scienceInnovation
business director Elena Laurie - Luke (Elena Lurie - Luke) have said: "some security problems are still hard to use the method to solve today, a new non animal testing alternatives need to strengthen. 3 d biological printing will be a very promising solution in the future."
