Scientists develop ‘cell printer’ for embryonic stem cells
Catholic World News - February 06, 2013
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have developed a “printer” for processing human embryonic stem cells.
After the embryos were killed and the stem cells obtained, the stem cells were placed in a “nutrient-rich soup,” creating “bio-ink,” LiveScience.com reported. The “bio-ink” was then “printed” in clumps onto a dish.
A “cell printer” has also been developed for adult stem cell research, which is not intrinsically immoral, as it does not involve the destruction of innocent human life.
