3D print chip placenta scientists from mother to child nutrition
Aug 17, 2018

"Our chip is composed of two regions - a representative, on behalf of another mother", Denise Mandt explained that her as part of the paper is involved in the project."We use a special 3D printing process between them form the partition - artificial placental membrane."

                                                                         Denise Mandt in the lab.

High resolution 3D printing involves hydrogel with good biocompatibility.

"Based on model of natural placenta, we produced a small, curved surface of the villi.Then the placenta can colonize, forming a very similar natural placental barrier, "explained Ovsianikov.

Initial tests have shown that the human placenta on the chip does show a similar way to natural placenta: small molecules are allowed through, and macromolecule is prevented.The model now aims to dedicated to research from mother to fetus important aspects of nutrient transport.
