Belarus’ Academy of Sciences presents bioprinter, GPS Cardio complex in Zhitomir

Belarus’ Academy of Sciences presents bioprinter, GPS Cardio complex in Zhitomir

MINSK, 3 October (BelTA) – The Physiology Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus presented a new-generation 3D bioprinter and a software and hardware complex GPS Cardio during the high technology, robot technology, mechatronics, and startup expo held as part of the 2nd Forum of Regions of Belarus and Ukraine in Zhitomir, BelTA has learned.

The bioprinter can create three-dimensional cell populations by printing live cells in hydrogel. It can also be used to work out promising in vivo (inside cell) methods for restoring impaired brain functions using neural networks created in vitro (in test tube). The product allows using the technology for restorative medical purposes.

The mobile complex GPS Cardio is a compact cardiograph fitted with a GPS module. It can record a cardiogram in real time and keep an eye on the patient’s heart rhythm. The system also provides a precise location of the patient. Scientists believe the product can save patients from sudden death syndrome.

The Physical-Technical Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus demonstrated medical implants with biocompatible protective coatings. The new coatings boast increased wear resistance and improved frictional properties. Implants can be color-coded and can be better integrated into bone tissue.

The Experimental Botany Institute presented an environmentally friendly therapeutic preparation for agricultural animals. It is based on biologically active components of microbial and phytogenic origin. The preparation is designed to prevent and cure dysbiotic states in young cattle, adjust microflora in the digestive tract of agricultural animals and stimulate immune response.

The Belarusian National Technical University presented the MelaSearch system. The end user can upload an image taken with a dermatoscope to the server and a program running on a remote supercomputer cluster can compare this image to a database of over 200 descriptions of clinical cases of skin cancer to determine whether the patient has melanotic cancer.

A total of over 100 Belarusian R&D and innovative products are on display in Zhitomir.
