3D Printer

Here Lawrence Bonassar describes how he has developed a technique which allows living cells to be printed with a material and go on to be used to reconstruct tissues in the body. After taking a 3D scan a printer can then be loaded with “ink” which contains living cells. This living “ink” is alive before and after it is printed. As the printer uses cells, the body readily accepts the final printed product as part of the body.
