Inkjet printing of cells and biopolymers
Abstract:We are using inkjet printing to deposit patterns of silk, collagen and ionic complexes of polypeptides. These guide the growth of cells deposited on the patterns. Yeast has been printed onto agar and the effect of overprinted biopolymer layers on the growth of yeast is being studied. This method allows organized structures of differing cells and biopolymers to be printed in order to study cell-cell interactions.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
