The printers arrive 3D that create weaves and until human organs
It turned out inevitable to think to me about the scene where the medical robot returns to place and reconstructs part of the hand of badly injured Luke Skywalker, after his confrontation with Dart Vader in Star Wars: The Empire Back Strike. Perhaps by to have written and to have read too many notes on droides doctors and printers that create until arms, or perhaps because it is already a reality that we will not be able to avoid.

But the news that also human organs will be able to be printed, was a mixture of joy with uncertainty, something similar to which happened when the era of the cloning began and the debate was put in the table on doing it with humans.

The medicine is a field where the advances, at least at public level, usually respect the ethical concepts for which they were created. It is by that the alliance between Autodesk, the company of development of software for modeled 3D more important of the world, with Organovo, experts in biotechnology, to create printers that model human organs, we could say that it is the equal news of controversy that the one of the impression 3D of arms, in the incorrect hands by all means.

That guarantees to us that the merchants and dealers of organs begin to use them to even lower their risk levels and, to increase its margins of gain?

The announcement of Autodesk to develop software to order of Organovo will have as beginning the mapeo of human tissue, which will be created from models of known printers as Bioprinters, designed by this company.

“ Tenemos machines that can make almost any thing, but we do not have the design tools ” commented Hod Lipson, director of the Creative Laboratory of Cornell Machines, on the process of growth of modeled 3D, something that it requires not only of a printer but of a software and in many cases, a scanner 3D, that it captures and it reproduces in vectors, the object that is desired to print.

For Organovo, company that was made well-known in 2010 create the first bioimpresora in 3D, the initial step to print weaves will give in the future near the experience them necessary to do it with organs destined to the investigation and why no, also alive beings “ who they at present undergo the inefficient process of donation of organs ”.

In 2011, the surgeon Anthony Atala participated in a TED chat and demonstrated that the impression of organs is not a project that is so far from becoming in fact, from already, as long as organisms as FDA (Food and Drug Administration of the United States) does not take part or tries to block the development of this new field of the medicine.
