First 3D-printed Heart-on-a-Chip Built @ Harvard


Collecting bio-data in a reliable fashion is going to be easier with this 3D printed heart-on-a-chip. This organ-on-a-chip with integrated sensors mimics the structure and function of native tissue. It was made using multi-material 3D printing in an automated procedure.

The sensors measure the contraction strength of the muscle. Makes collecting data for studies easier. Harvard has more on the story here.
