3 Dimensional Prints (3DP) of Artificial Cell Structures
Abstract:Nano bio innovation studies on iPS cell, ES cell, DNA and miRNA are highly focused to clear pathogenic mechanisms and develop personalized medicines. On the other hand, 3D organ is required for donor shortage problem. To fabricate 3D organ, printing technology is suitable because 3D structures will be fabricated by repeatable print, and position of cells and biomaterials is easy to control by 3D image data. Electrostatic patterning (electrostatic inkjet, electrospray, and electro spinning) is highly focused. Electrostatic patterning has good merit that is possible to eject highly viscous liquid. Electrostatic inkjet has another merit that is high resolution to print. These characteristics are suitable to fabricate precision 3D cell structures. Electrospray and electro spinning are suitable to fabricate scaffolds and extracellular matrix (ECM) those are composed of biomaterials. In this presentation, I would like to introduce products fabricated by electrostatic patterning.

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.
