Yang Keng, the company chairman said, "The creative breakthrough in the 3D blood vessel bio-printing means we have mastered the stem cell-based 3D bio-printing technology."

James Kang, an expert who led the program, said, "Blood vessels that transport nutrients to organs are indispensable elements when creating any organs."

The research team has created a novel type of bio-ink - 'Biosynsphere', whose primary goal is the personalized stem cell bio-printing to pave the way for organ regeneration. Kang said, "We have successfully realized the blood vessel regeneration by relying on the 3D bio-printer, the biosynsphere technology and the data model based on cloud computing."
