Inkjet-Like Device Prints Skin Cells
Scientists have developed a device which sprays new skin cells onto wounds directly to heal them.
Doctors at the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine have designed an inkjet like device that emits new skin cells onto damaged burn tissue. The device contains a tank holding a mixture of harvested skin cells, stem cells and nutrients and a computerized nozzle which first sprays a layer of fibroblast skin cells and then a layer of protective keratinocyte cells.
