Ink jet printing has attracted increasing interest in recent years as a tool for medical research. The ability to precisely position pl volumes of liquid has a number of potential applications in tissue engineering. The dispensation of bioactive chemicals, e.g. adhesion and growth factors, can be used for the directed growth of nerve cells. Whole cells have been dispensed without excessive damage to their function. This leads to the possible construction of biologically active structures from cells and other materials with applications in: fundamental cell biology, cell arrays for toxicity testing, bioreactors and cell factories for pharmaceutical and tissue (cartilage) manufacture, external assist devices (e.g. next generation dialysis, and even complete organs for implantation.)

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
