3D-Paint: hyperelastic bone 3D bio-printing materials for bone regeneration research
Mar 30, 2018

Allevi Inc., a maker of 3D bio-printers, has added Dimension Inx LLC's hyperelastic skeletal 3D coating material to its roster of bio-printed materials."3D -Paint" will allow researchers to explore the potential of repair and regenerative bone using 3D bio-printing technology.

The innovative materials were first introduced in 2016 by northwestern university researcher Dr Ramille Shah and Dr Adam Jakus, who published research on their hyperelastic bone biological chain (or 3D coating).Not only does the material have biocompatibility, but because of its elasticity, 3D printed scaffolds and implants can be operated during the operation. Importantly, bone regeneration and bone growth can be promoted simultaneously.

Now, the biomaterials have been sold on the market through Allevi's hyperelastic bone kit and are being sold to researchers and scientists for further testing and exploration.(hyperelastic skeletal 3D-Paint material is still available for use in research and testing.)

The biological print materials by 90% hydroxyapatite (constitute minerals of bones and teeth), but also integrate the elastic material, which makes its remarkable superiority over other hard tissue of biological materials.The physical flexibility of the material improves its ease of use and makes 3D printing implants easy to adapt to.

Allelle explained: "hyperelastic bone 3D-Paint can be 3D printed into user-defined structures and processed immediately after 3D printing.Then 3D printing materials and structures can be cut, folded, rolled, punched, etc., according to the user's requirements.

Using super elastic skeleton 3D - Paint will more or less similar to other biological printing method, because the user will be based on patients with CT or MRI scans to generate specific 3D skeletal model, then use the material to print the model.The implant can then be placed in the patient's bone space, where it will provide customized strength and support and promote natural bone regeneration.

"Over the years, bio-printers are still exciting, but the problem is still there, how useful they are," said Ricky Solorzano, chief executive of Allevi."Hyperelastic bones and their promises are a clear example of how advanced biomaterial printing can have a huge impact on humans."

Allevi's recently released hyperelastic skeletal suite includes 3ml Dimension Inx super-elastic bone 3D paint, Allevi 5 ml syringe, metal wire drawing needle, printing needle and Allevi printing plate.The kit is compatible with Allevi bio-printers, starting at $250.
