There has been little advancement in the technology used to transport organs for transplantation since the first successful heart transplant in the 1960s, but despite its ubiquity, the iconic ice box method has its limitations. We take a look at innovations at the frontier of the tech trusted to transport human organs.

Also, we examine a new bioengineering technique developed by scientists at the New York Stem Cell Foundation called segmental additive tissue engineering, which allows researchers to combine segments of bone engineered from stem cells to create large-scale, personalised bone grafts, and speak to US-based lawyer Matthew Jacobson to get the comprehensive legal view on 3D printing in medical device manufacturing.

Plus, we find out about the OLO blood diagnostics system launched by Israeli start-up Sight Diagnostics, which uses machine learning and computer vision to provide complete blood count test results on the spot.

And as always, we round up the latest news from the medical device industry, and get comment and analysis from GlobalData’s healthcare analysts on market dynamics, product innovation, regional developments and regulatory issues.
