Israel-based Stratasys will partner with US company Jacobs Institute (JI) to develop a new Center of Excellence (COE) to expand the usage of 3D printing for a range of medical applications.

Stratasys’ 3D printing technology will be used by the new COE to develop and assess new medical devices using 3D printed prototypes and models, and promote clinical education and training activities for a variety of audiences.

The 3D printing technology is said to accelerate the medical procedures conducted by doctors, researchers and medical device manufacturers, enabling a thorough test and offer personalised care for patients.

The COE will serve as a referral centre for hospitals and medical research organisations that are planning to implement 3D printing labs.

"Working together, the respective institutions will leverage their strengths to make an impact far greater than they could make individually."

Jacobs Institute CEO Bill Maggio said: "By partnering with Stratasys, the Jacobs Institute is bringing the leader in 3D printing to Buffalo to work closely with the JI and its partners, Kaleida Health and the University at Buffalo, to accelerate the development of new medical technologies.

"Working together, the respective institutions will leverage their strengths to make an impact far greater than they could make individually."
