Caption: Skin cell printer. Printer nozzle (top centre) deposits skin cells onto wells in an assay plate containing alginate growth substrate. Bioprinters such as this could one day be used to 'print' bioartificial tissues and organs for use in surgery. Photographed in 2008 at the laboratory of Professor Brian Derby, University of Manchester, UK.
