Ink-Jet Printing of Neuronal and Other Types of Cells

Dr. Patrick Smith's research group at the University of Sheffield used MicroFab's Jetlab® printing system to demonstrate ink-jet printing of biological and neuronal cells. The precise printing technique can be used for lab-on-chip technologies and to fabricate neural networks for fundamental neuroscience studies and applications. “Ink-jet printing can be used to produce finer neuronal networks than produced by other techniques since the printed cells produce longer neural processes,” Smith explains.
