New block-cell printing ups brain cell survival rate

Researchers in Houston have developed a way to print living cells in virtually any shape onto any surface. Unlike recent, similar work using 2D or 3D printing, almost all cells survive the process, say scientists in this week’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

„We feel the current technologies are inadequate,“ Qin said. „Inkjet-based cell printing leaves many of the cells damaged or dead. We wanted to see if we could invent a tool that helps researchers obtain arrays of cells that are alive and still have full activity.“
