The 3D printing of functional human organs could be a reality within the next decade, and Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) is helping to lead the bioprinting revolution now underway.
Extremely promising breakthroughs in recent years have generated global interest in 3D bioprinting. Last August, Chinese researchers announced that they’d printed a small working kidney that lasted four months. In the U.S., researchers at Cornell University bioprinted a bionic ear last year, and San Diego firm Organovo showed promising results in printing human liver tissues.
With techniques and technology advancing rapidly, RBCC has positioned itself on the front lines of 3D bioprinting research through its joint venture with Nano3D Biosciences (n3D). The companies have teamed up to market and develop the BiO Assay, the first commercially available 3D bioprinter designed specifically for rapid, high-volume drug screening.
The automated toxicity assay uses biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles to print cells into 3D structures much faster and more affordably than competing bioprinting tech currently on the market. The automated toxicity assay uses biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles to print cells into 3D structures much faster and more affordably than competing bioprinting tech currently on the market.
“By making this technology available to researchers around the globe, we hope to advance the science of human cell culturing toward an era of 3D printed organ replacement and regeneration,” said RBCC CEO Kimberly Palmer.
RBCC formed a biotech subsidiary, Rainbow Biosciences, to market and develop new medical and research technology innovations to compete alongside companies such as Biogen Idec Inc. (NASDAQ: BIIB), Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT) and Amgen Inc. (NASDAQ: AMGN). In 2012, Rainbow Biosciences acquired an equity interest in n3D.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
