Quest For Manufacturing Human Tissue In Space Via 3D Printer to Be Launched In July

GREENVILLE, Ind., June 3, 2019 — Two high-tech companies have teamed up to develop the first 3D printer capable of manufacturing human tissue in the microgravity condition of space. Techshot Inc., a commercial developer and operator of spaceflight equipment; and nScrypt, a manufacturer of the world’s most advanced industrial 3D bioprinters and electronics printers, developed the 3D BioFabrication Facility (BFF). The BFF will use adult human cells (such as stem or pluripotent cells) and adult tissue-derived proteins as its bioink to create viable tissue. A small bio-ink startup, Bioficial Organs, also was consulted on the project. It will launch to the International Space Station in July aboard the SpaceX CRS-18 cargo mission from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
