Based in San Diego, CA, Organovo is the only public company that operates in the field of human tissue 3D printing. Its bioprinter has already achieved some breakthrough results in the printing of live liver tissue that responds to drug stimuli. Bioprinting organs such as liver, kidney and skin for transplants is one of the great promises of additive manufacturing methods and it is usually explored most at a academic level, without real commercial applications in sight for at least the next 5 years. However Organovo's technology is viewed as viable by the scientific community and holds great potential.
Biomedical research is gravitating towards 3D cell culture models and tissue printing. At n3D, we sell kits and services for 3D cell culture. Our core technology is the magnetization of cells, which can then be directed using magnetic forces. In this manner, we can either levitate or bioprint cells. These cultures are faster to assemble than other systems and easier to handle with magnets without losing samples. Check out our products and our services for more information on our technology, and how we can help you!There is a growing push for biomedical and pharmaceutical research to transition towards three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models. Model selection is basically a choice between representation (animal testing) and throughput (in vitro cell culture). 3D cell culture brings the best of both worlds, but technical limitations in cost and handling have prevented its widespread use.To overcome these challenges, Nano3D Biosciences (n3D) has developed magnetic cell culture, where we magnetize cells using NanoShuttleTM-PL, and then rapidly print them into microtissues using magnetic force. This is an easy method for 3D cell culture that works with any cell type, making it ideal for biomedical research and high-throughput compound screening.We offer a wide product line for our technology with kits that are easy to use and fit seamlessly into existing cell culture workflows. We also provide services, in cell culture optimization or contract research, where we leverage our expertise in 3D cell culture to deliver quality results.At n3D, our goal is to develop our magnetic cell culture technology into the industry standard for 3D cell culture, with longer term focuses on personalized medicine and regenerative medicine.

Aspect Biosystems is a Canadian biotechnology company founded in November, 2013. The company spun out from two internationally recognized research groups in engineering and medicine at the University of British Columbia. Aspect Biosystems is working towards a future where doctors determine which drugs work for their patients before prescribing them, where animals are no longer needed for the development of new therapeutics, and where lifesaving transplant organs are created, not harvested. To realise these goals, Aspect has developed a disruptive 3D bioprinting platform technology capable of creating living human tissues on demand.Our initial products aim to improve the predictive accuracy of the pre-clinical drug discovery process by providing the industry and researchers with the technology to create highly customized physiologically-relevant 3D human tissue models that they can employ in the development of new drugs. Aspect’s technology has the potential to drive a fundamental shift in the pharmaceutical industry, enabling the development of completely new therapeutics, and enabling pharma to test drugs they may have shelved in the past due to a lack of appropriate models. Furthermore, Aspect’s technology has the potential to significantly reduce the use of laboratory animals, supporting an industry wide mandate to reduce, refine and replace animal testing. Aspect has a long-term vision to expand beyond applications in drug development, by enabling Human Tissues on Demand™ for broad applications in the life sciences including regenerative medicine and organ transplantation.
At Xilloc, we believe that engineering and technology can be used even more in healthcare for the benefit of individual patients. “Personalized medicine” is a term often coined. We feel however, that this is not yet applied to implants and prosthetics, as these are mostly standard products, sometimes modified for an improved fit. Everybody is different and unique and therefore the human body and a patient’s anatomy should be the starting point for the design and engineering of individual implants and prosthetics. We feel that we can bridge the gap between the physician and individually engineered products. As such we aim to provide Patient Specific implants to reconstruct parts of the human’s skeleton.
