3D printer for stem cells

Scientists Heriott-Watt University in Edinburgh have created "Cellular 3D-printer", which reproduces stem cells, which will in the future create the donation of organs of the patient's cells and refuse testing medicines on animals. It is reported by Reuters.

Scientists hope that, thanks to his discovery, they will soon be able to create individual tissues in which it will be possible to test drugs, and then the whole donor organs.

If we combine the printed cells with cells that are in the process of formation, such as the lungs or liver, you can get the fabric of the body. Participants of the project are hoping to 2015 "printing" the liver. It is expected that, if it succeeds, then "printed" organs will not be rejected, but the millions of terminally ill people do not have to wait years for donors.
