Japanese Wagyu beef grown in laboratory using 3D bioprinting technology
According to the Global Times, Japanese scientists recently used 3D printing technology to successfully create Wagyu beef with a marbled effect. The manufactured meat products contain protein, fat, and even blood vessels. Researchers say such "cultured" steaks are more environmentally friendly than their traditional counterparts. Wagyu is an expensive and highly sought-after beef breed from Japan.
As a new manufacturing technology that is different from the past, 3D printing technology is based on digital model files and uses materials such as metals and polymers to print and stack layer by layer to form physical objects. Currently, in aerospace, aviation, and medical fields.
In recent years, 3D printing technology has been increasingly used in the medical industry. Scientists have successfully printed human organs and tissues, such as 3D printed liver models, blood vessels, bones, chests and even miniature hearts. Experts believe that 3D printing will have great potential in the pharmaceutical industry in the future.
On August 23, the Jinan Private Economic Development Bureau and China Economic Weekly jointly launched the theme publicity activity of "Central Media Look at Jinan - Entering Jinan's Private Economy" in Yinfeng Biotechnology Park.
Led by Anhui Medical University and participated by Yinfeng Cryogenic Medical Technology Co., Ltd., the "Engineering Research Center for Life Resources Conservation and Artificial Organs of the Ministry of Education" was officially accepted and awarded by the Ministry of Education. As one of the four major platforms for the transformation of the center's project, Yinfeng Cryogenic Co., Ltd. is responsible for the "development, promotion and application of cryogenic preservation technology of biological matrix materials".
On March 28, 2023, the kick-off meeting of the International Alliance for Life Extension Research was held in Jinan, Shandong. The "International Alliance for Life Extension Research" was initiated by Shandong Yinfeng Life Science Research Institute, and jointly established by 13 international scientific research institutions engaged in the field of cryogenic biomedicine from North America, Europe, Oceania, etc., and appeared at the conference through online and offline forms.
