Cellink Expanding to China for Bioink 3D Printing of Human Tissue


In Sweden, Cellink is using bioink and 3D printing technology to create biomaterial structures with living cells. Long are the days of waiting on a list for transplants for new body parts or of having to test consumer products on animals, now that you can 3D print them. Cellink is finding a growing interest for its printers in the cosmetic sector for things like new noses and ears, especially in countries like China. The company is doing quite well after going public within 10 months of being founded and having its shares 1070% oversubscribed. With only 20 people in the company, Cellink’s customers are still mainly universities but some big name cosmetic companies are looking into 3D printing of human tissue as a way to avoid animal testing.
