The “one-shot” process paves the path for cutting-edge 3D cell culture methods with biomedical engineering applications, claim the scientists.

German scientists have created a new technology that helps them print 3D objects with sound waves.

The design creates pressure fields using several acoustic holograms, which can be used to print solid particles, gel beads, and even living cells, according to the study released on Thursday.


The new method of 3D matter assembly was developed by researchers from the Institute for Molecular Systems Engineering and Advanced Materials and the Micro, Nano, and Molecular Systems Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research at Heidelberg University.
