Whilst 3D printing is a well-established tool in manufacturing and research until now the public has largely viewed it as the preserve of niche hobbyists. Since the COVID19 pandemic, however, 3D printing has enjoyed a considerable awakening in the public consciousness. As global supply chains for medical equipment have been disrupted, the 3D printing community is coming together with a number of initiatives to help. Here are a few ways companies & organizations are helping:⠀ ⠀ 1) Coronavirus tests: @Formlabs who normally make (awesome) 3D printers are now using their printers to manufacture nasal swabs for COVID-19 testing. ⠀ ⠀ 2) PPE: NASCAR and Toyota are using their 3D printers to make face shields for healthcare workers. @copper3d_global has shared an open-source file for a 3D-printable N-95 mask (NanoHack) whilst the Pugliese-Sicilian open-source mask project, allows users to freely download and print a face mask at home.⠀ ⠀ 3) Ventilators & Respirators: A consortium that includes Consorci de la Zona Franca (CZFB), HP, Leitat, SEAT, Consorci Sanitari de Terrassa (CST), and the Parc Taulí Hospital in Sabadell, created the first medically approved 3D printable respirator. Ford is working with GE Healthcare to build air-pressured ventilators, Chevrolet is partnering with Ventec Life Systems to build ventilators and Toyota collaborating with medical device companies to speed the manufacturing of ventilators.⠀ ⠀ 4) Treatment: the hunt for a vaccine or treatment is ongoing and one exciting prospect is @prellisbio who are producing human antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 using 3D printed synthetic lymph nodes. If successful, these antibodies could confer temporary immunity and prophylaxis.⠀ ⠀ We're unlikely to see the end of this pandemic anytime soon but the advances in 3D printing and biotechnology over the last 20 years are providing us with tools to fight back. Over the next few weeks and months, we're likely to witness the adoption of many technologies and industries that just 3 months ago seemed futuristic.⠀ ⠀ #biotech #bioworkshop #3dprinting #covid19 #coronavirus #tuesdaythoughts #science #startuplife #biotechnology #technology #medicine #technews
