What is Biofabrication?
Biofabrication is a programmed creation of tissues and organs that contend with health threats in Medicine. It utilizes the 3D printing which is also known as the theory of additive manufacturing. Its main objective is to merge gels, cells and fibres into a solo construct that can substitute an ailing or wounded tissue.

Breakthrough in Biofabrication of replacement body parts
The QUT (Queensland University of Technology) biofabrication team has been making a name for itself through printing mechanically reinforced, tissue engineered constructs in order to restore the human body parts, in 3D. As published in Nature Communications, the biomedical engineers explained how they had strengthen soft hydrogels by printing a 3D scaffold.
Cosmetic ingredients produced by Biofabrication
According to a scientist that works in the field, the raw materials that produce both living and nonliving biological ingredients for personal care products will be Living cells, organic molecules and the like.
A new research carried out in Germany, what makes 3-D printed algae a reality is using the hydrogel substructures. A team of researchers together with Dr. Anja Lode of the Centre for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research at the Dresden University of Technology as well as the University’s Institute of Food Technology have published their technical findings in the journal of Engineering in Life Sciences. As explained by Brian Krassenstein in his article on the scientific development for 3Dprint.com, “This means that not only can animal tissue be printed, but so too can plant tissue, or perhaps even a combination of both animal and plant cells via coculturization process”.
