Rapid prototyping uses advanced computer and laser technologies to produce complex three-dimensional prototypes in a fraction of the time required by more traditional technologies. The rapid prototyping process begins with a CAD solid model output to the appropriate RP file format. The file data is sliced into cross sections of 0.003 to 0.010 in. thickness. The cross sections are then fabricated in a layer additive process using one of the three available RP technologies.
Researchers have developed a unique 3D printed system for harvesting stem cells from bioreactors, offering the potential for high quality, wide-scale production of stem cells in Australia at a lower cost.
Educators at the Renaissance School of Medicine (RSOM) at Stony Brook University highlighted the success of their three-year, elective course in biodesign that has enabled students to expand their abilities as innovators to creating potential medical devices for the future.
Think of cells as tiny factories: within their walls they have both the machinery to make products such as proteins, and the mechanisms for maintenance to keep processes running smoothly.
Entos Pharmaceuticals, a healthcare biotechnology company developing next generation nucleic acid medicines with their Fusogenix delivery platform announced today a partnership with Precision NanoSystems, Inc., (PNI), a global leader in enabling transformative nanomedicines, to produce clinical grade vaccines and therapeutics using PNI's NanoAssemblr GMP System.
