BIOPRINTING: PROSPECTS OF A RAPIDLY GROWING TECHNOLOGY
Hossein Fakhrzadeh, Bagher Larikani

Abstract


The behavior of tissue fragments in permissive jells is like liquid drops. Under appropriate conditions this phenomenon could be used to print tissues of prescribed shape. Application of the principles of rapid prototyping to tissue engineering or robotic biofabrication is a novel technology that holds promising future in producing suitable human organs in large scale. An  introductory discussion of the new interdisciplinary technology of bioprinting is presented in this article.
