Caption

Polymer encapsulated cells. Light micrograph of living cells encapsulated within polymer droplets. These droplets are sprayed from inkjet nozzles using a technique known as 'pressure assisted spinning'. An electric field applied to the droplets causes them to form very fine threads that can be woven into bio-artificial tissues for organ transplant surgery or as 'living' bandages. Photographed in 2009 at the laboratory of Suwan Jayasinghe at the University College London, UK.
