Electro Photography (“Laser Printing”) an Efficient Technology for Biofabrication

Electro photography – the second wide spread digital printing technology beside ink jet – is on the way to prove its capabilities as a manufacturing technology, at least for applications in biofabrication. On DF2008 we first introduced a novel and highly efficient manufacturing process for biochips (peptide arrays) based on electro photography. After the major scientific goals were achieved the step towards a series production has been made in the last two years. We now present the biochip printing facility capable for a series production.

Next, we introduce the application of electro photography as a rapid prototyping technique for the (potential) production of artificial tissues. Similar to other rapid prototyping techniques 3D-structures are build layer by layer from toner powders. Since different approaches to manufacture scaffolds for tissue engineering have been made until today the comparison of the results is interesting.

  • 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.
