nano-dimension-accellta-1x1Israeli 3D printer firm Nano Dimension has successfully lab-tested a 3D bioprinter for stem cells, paving the way for the potential printing of large tissues and organs, the company said on Wednesday.

Nano Dimension shares in Tel Aviv, which had been suspended ahead of the announcement, leapt 19 percent when they resumed trading and closed 16.6 percent higher. The company’s shares on the U.S. Nasdaq were up 16.8 percent in early trade.
