New Technology Can Combat Drug Resistant Bacteria

New technological devices can combat antimicrobial resistance in 3 different ways. They can prevent the spread of healthcare associated infections, identify bacteria properly and determine medication susceptibility, and properly tracking and containing pathogens. This new technology includes artificial intelligence to

Get your own H&H at home using a 3D printer

Add a drop of blood to this clear plastic 3D printed device and then link it up with a phone app that uses color scale-based tests to detect anemia. The researchers still have to optimize the device, but the prototype looks promising. Read

Don’t like your current organs? 3D print one!

Researchers at UCSF have developed a method called DNA Programmed Assembly of Cells (DPAC) that brings us one step closer to being able to print fully functional living organs – for now, they’ve created tiny models aka Organoids! Full article

3D printing drugs? Oh, the possibilities.

The FDA recently approved the first 3D printed drug – SPRITAM® levetiracetam for oral use as a prescription adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial onset seizures, myoclonic seizures and primary generalized tonic-clonic seizures in adults and children with epilepsy.
