Slightly off-topic as the copyright of individual products custom built for
unique patients should not be an issue in this instance (as each "product"
uses cells from the patient), but the 3D tissue construction technology
development is Australian based and very much 3D fab.

01 DECEMBER 2009

Invetech delivered the world's first production model 3D bio-printer to
Organovo, developers of the proprietary NovoGen bioprinting technology.
Organovo will supply the units to research institutions investigating human
tissue repair and organ replacement.

Dr. Fred Davis, president of Invetech, said, "Building human organs
cell-by-cell was considered science fiction not that long ago. Through this
clever combination of technology and science we have helped Organovo develop
an instrument that will improve people’s lives, making the regenerative
medicine that Organovo provides accessible to people around the world."
