Meat-Tech 3D Ltd . , an R&D company working towards developing animal-free alternative foods, announced that it has successfully produced 3D printed animal-free meat from stem cells.
Meat-Tech’s successful experiment is a technological breakthrough that significantly increases the feasibility of Meat-Tech’s technologies. Meat-Tech’s most important experiment to date transpired as part of the company’s multi-year work plan.
The plan is to develop an industrial process, with integrated 3D digital printing technology, for growing and producing cuts of beef without harming animals.
Designated as “Project Carpaccio”, due to its similarity to the thinly-sliced meat delicacy, Meat-Tech applied its proprietary 3D printer for tissue construction, followed by a cell-growth process. Meat-Tech’s scientists succeeded in printing several cell types, which coalesced into a single fat and muscle tissue grown in Meat-Tech’s laboratory. This feat has brought about the coalescence of a living tissue composed […]
