Shaochen Chen’s 3D-printed liver-inspired device in CNBC video

The Chen lab’s device for removing pore-forming toxins from blood is the first to employ either toxin-absorbing nanoparticles or 3D printing for in vitro detoxification. Further, the combination of the two creatively sidesteps a potential challenge to systemic administration of the nanoparticles, which may accumulate in the liver. This futuristic device has thus received attention not only from scientific outlets like Gizmag and ScienceDaily, but was even explained in a video from CNBC.
