Cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes claim the lives of over 14 million people every year. To cure and treat these diseases, scientists and healthcare professionals conduct their research using in vitro and in vivo models.

 .

Unfortunately, because these models fail to fully replicate the human physiology, they tend to undermine the success of this research. As researchers look for new solutions, many are turning to high-resolution 3D printing to create organs-on-a-chip devices.

 .

An organ-on-a-chip is a device that accurately mimics the human body’s environment for use in disease modelling and drug testing.

 .

“3D printing gives us the potential to create organically shaped, highly accurate, microfluidic replicas of blood vessels,” says Pedro Costa, CEO and CTO of Biofabics , a Portugal-based company […]
