Vexon 3D Technologies is currently developing the 3D Biopen, a novel surgical instrument for orthopaedic surgery. The 3D BioPen offers a means to successfully repair bones afflicted with osteoarthritis or fracture. The BioPen deposites a two-part a bioactive gel and cross-linking agent. This is used to repair cavities of the bones repair them. The ink protects the cells during the operation and helps them integrate.
Vexon is developing this instrument as an effective treatment for Arthritis. This extremely common condition that affects over 350 million people worldwide. The Vexon BioPen is a revolutionary device that allows surgeons to 3D bioprint cartilage directly.
By bioprinting stem cells suspended in a hydrogel these can be deposited into the right area. The cross-linked hydrogel sustains the cells while they mature, produce collagen fibre and form cartilage.
