A novel system can print
biological tissue in just 30 seconds.
The technology is
being used in a large-scale
European project to develop
a living model of the pancreas
for testing new drugs.
The bioprinting technology
uses a biological gel
containing a patient's stem
cells. A laser is applied to the gel to solidify it through polymerization.
The location and intensity of the laser beam can
be controlled in order to solidify only those areas of the gel
needed to form the desired tissue. It can create tissue in a
single block, making it particularly useful for printing soft
tissue like organs. Bioprinted tissue can be tailor-made since
it's created from a patient's own stem cells, and it eliminates
the need to conduct animal testing.
The technology could also one day be used to bioprint
other kinds of tissue for developing treatments for cancer,
for example, or eventually for producing transplant organs.

An innovative system may provide
a new option to use directed
energy for biomedical and applications.
The invention uses composite
based nonlinear transmission
lines (NLTLs) for a complete
high-power microwave system,
eliminating the need for multiple
auxiliary systems. The interest in NLTLs has increased in the
past few decades because they offer an effective solid-state
alternative to conventional vacuum-based, high-power micro -
wave generators that require large and expensive external systems,
such
as cryogenic electromagnets and high-voltage
nanosecond pulse generators.
NLTLs have proven effective for applications in the and biomedical
field. They create directed high-power microwaves that
can be used for sterilization and noninvasive medical treatments.
The system is charged using a DC high-voltage supply and
discharged using a high-voltage, gas-based switch. The system
eliminates the need for external pulse generation and is more
rugged due to the solid-state construction.
