The printer uses 3-D modeling software to robotically pick up and place cellular spheroids onto stainless steel needle arrays. The spheroids can be assembled into the desired 3-D tissue or organ shape.
After the cells are allowed to mature in a bioreactor, the 3-D tissue maintains its shape without the needle support structure.
