Electrostatically-Injected Droplet (ELID) method took place when high voltage was applied between a capillary tube filled with ion conductive liquid and a metal plate electrode. At the last DF conference, we reported that living cells were printed and demonstrated fabrication of simple 3D structures which contained living cells and scaffolds by the ELID method. However the stiffness of the simple 3D structures were low, it was necessary to print not only line-shaped scaffolds but also sheet-shaped scaffolds. In this paper, we developed new printing machine “Bio-Cell On”. We patterned a precise line and a thin sheet of gelatin with this machine. The width of the line was about several micron meters. It was narrow enough to be used as scaffolds because the diameter of cells was about several 10 micron meters. The thickness of the sheet was controlled by the time and amplitude of voltage application.

  • 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.
