Is the terminator already here? Human cells grown on the skeleton of a robot

In an attempt to improve the cultivation of organs from living cells, scientists used a robotic

manipulator. Discuss

The fact is that for the normal growth of cartilageThe tissues of the joints and tendons need constant loads, stretching and flexion. That is why scientists use automation. Recently, the researchers decided to use an anthropomorphic robot for this purpose, or rather the shoulder joint.

During the work, scientists placed on elasticplastic substrates human cells. They were fixed in an artificial shoulder joint for 14 days. For half an hour a day, the robot reproduced various movements. This made it possible to obtain the necessary loads on the growing tissue.

It turned out that under such conditions the cells grow faster. In addition, there are differences in the profiles of genetic activity. Scientists plan to improve this method.
