3D Systems sets up new firm to support drug development with bioprinting technologies

3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) said Thursday it formed a new wholly-owned biotechnology firm called Systemic Bio, which will use advanced bioprinting technologies in drug discovery and development, with initial $15M seed investment from DDD. Systemic Bio will leverage DDD's production-level bioprinting technology to create vascularized organ models using biomaterials and human cells for its proprietary organ-on-a-chip platform called h-VIOS. These proprietary organs-on-chips can be used to study drug metabolism and the effects on healthy or diseased tissue. The ability to simulate human response to an experimental drug significantly reduces costs and time required for to bring a new drug to market. It could also eventually reduce or eliminate the need for animal testing. Systemic Bio will likely create a biotech revenue stream for DDD that could approach $100M annually over the next five years.
