Printer makes human skin for burn patients

Technology can replace cosmetic healing and is seen as biggest breakthrough since antibiotics's invention.

A new invention could signal a major breakthrough in the way patients with burns injuries are treated.

A researcher in Canada has developed a three-dimensional prototype printer which will produce human skin from a patient's own cells.

Doctors say it will revolutionise the process of skin graft operations, and can save the lives of hundreds of burns victims every year.

And not just skin: the technology may also pave the way for producing entire organs for transplants.

Al Jazeera's Danel Lak reports from Toronto.
