3D Bioprinting Information Resources
Mary Chitty, MSLS, Library Director & Taxonomist, Cambridge Healthtech,
printing in the life sciences encompasses medical devices, dental implants
both for prototyping and personalized for individual patients. Live cell
and tissue printing is now used to produce “organs on a chip” for drug
Using cells, proteins, biomaterials and/or other bioactive elements as building blocks to fabricate advanced biological models, medical therapeutic products and non-medical biological systems. Scope note, Biofabrication, IOP Publishing http://iopscience.iop.org/1758-5090
bioprinting: A material transfer technique used for assembling biological material or cells into a prescribed organization to create functional structures such as MICROCHIP ANALYTICAL DEVICES, cell microarrays, or three dimensional anatomical structures. MeSH 2013
New manufacturing technologies under the banner of rapid prototyping enable the fabrication of structures close in architecture to biological tissue. In their simplest form, these technologies allow the manufacture of scaffolds upon which cells can grow for later implantation into the body. A more exciting prospect is the printing and patterning in three dimensions of all the components that make up a tissue (cells and matrix materials) to generate structures analogous to tissues; this has been termed bioprinting.
