Caption: Bio-artificial tissue. Researcher holding a sample of bio-artificial tissue created by 'printing' a mixture of living cells and viscous polymer into a tissue scaffold. The technique, known as 'pressure assisted spinning' uses a small electrical field that cause the droplets to disperse as a superfine thread with cells encapsulated within. Bioprinters could one day build artificial tissues and organs for replacement organ surgery. Photographed in 2009 at the laboratory of Suwan Jayasinghe at the University College London, UK.
