Swedish Firm Cellink Can 3D Print Human Body Parts

At the tender age of 1 year old, Swedish company Cellink is already a world leader in 3D bioprinting, being able to 3D print life-sized human body parts such as noses and ears in a Petri dish. Mixing human cells with bio-ink, a liquid composed of cellulose sourced from forests in Sweden as well as seaweed-derived alginate from the Norwegian Sea, a 3D printer dispenses the light-blue liquid into a Petri dish intricately and begins to cultivate a body part within a matter of hours.

Erik Gatenholm, the company’s chief executive and co-founder, believes that within 20 years the technology could be used to create fully functioning organs which are fit for purpose in human transplantation.
