The bioprinter will print bodies in space


The experiment starts at the ISS on October 13. The printer will collect human cartilaginous tissue and a thyroid gland of a mouse. The test purpose — preparation for the project possible in the future on cultivation in an orbit of human bodies the International Space Station.

On October 11 the Russian Union ship will deliver to the ISS the unique device — 3D - the bioprinter for the press in zero gravity. Lack of gravitation — ideal conditions for work on cultivation of bodies. During the first in the history of an experiment which starts in an orbit on October 13 the printer will collect human cartilaginous tissue and a thyroid gland of a mouse. The bioprinter is called "Body.Avt". The principle of its work differs from usual. In the device there are no moving parts, in stronger magnetic field in the conditions of a microgravity the sample is formed not layer-by-layer, and cages are organized in fabric and begin to grow. In the device the cameras are mounted to watch the events. At the ISS together with the printer ditches with biomaterial in special gel will depart. In space gel will turn into nutritious liquid. Assembly of a biodesign will require less than a minute. Then within a day it will get durability. After that will add a clamp that bodies remained before sending to Earth in several weeks to a ditch. Upon return scientists will study the turned-out biodesigns to correlate them to those that turn out on Earth. Developers consider that the press in space allows to reproduce more precisely process of growth of fabrics, how it occurs in the nature. On Earth more powerful magnetic fields, but, despite it are required for the printer, total designs are all the same deformed because of terrestrial gravitation. The customer of an experiment — the Russian laboratory 3D Bioprinting Solutions. Researches are conducted under patronage of Roskosmos. The test purpose — preparation for the project possible in the future on cultivation in an orbit of human cages and bodies. In the long term from the biosample of the specific patient taken into an orbit it will be possible to grow up body or fabric necessary for it. It will solve a problem of survival of fabrics and search of the donor. The director of development 3D Bioprinting Solutions Dmitry Fadin tells about the project: — We assume to derive practical benefits from this experiment. It consists in working off of the most this way of the press when by means of magnetic forces, and subsequently possible combined magnetic and ultrasonic we collect an object. The second — we plan to use this method for assessment of how three-dimensional live educations in space behave. And for distant astronautics it is quite perspective. — In the long term from the biosample of the specific patient taken into an orbit it will be possible to grow up necessary body. About what prospect there is a speech? That is three years, five years, 50? — There are suspicions that it strongly depends on about what bodies we speak. If we speak, for example, about skin, then it can be not
