Abstract

Bioprinting is a method of deposition of cells and biomaterials to create models of functional tissue. The development of bioprinting is to meet the needs of organ donors and also to reduce experiments in other living things. At the beginning of its development, bioprinter was made by changing the functions of inkjet printers in the market. Initially, this method was only able to print cells and biomaterials in 2-dimensional form. However, as the development of Additive Manufacturing, or more commonly called 3D printing, progresses, many researchers developed a bioprinter that can print cells in 3 dimensions. In this research, the bioprinter that is made is based on 3D printers available in the market. The 3D printer was modified by the extruder and the software so it could be used to print cells. It uses a hydrogel-based support bath as printing environment to maintain the shape of the printed cell so we can print a relatively complex design.
