Three-dimensional bioprinting refers to the process of developing cell patterns in a limited space with the help of 3D printing technologies. The viability and function of the cells are retained within the printed structure. Recent developments have made possible 3D printing of biocompatible cells and materials into three-dimensional, complex, and functional living tissues. The growing need for organs and tissues that are suitable for transplantation has fueled the application of 3D bioprinting in regenerative medicine.
Some of the leading industry technologies used in 3D bioprinting are inkjet-based printing, magnetic levitation, laser-based printing, and syringe-based printing. These technologies have expanded the application of 3D bioprinting in areas such as medical, bioinks, personal and consumer product testing, dental, biosensors, and food and animal product bioprinting.
