ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
For preparing and presenting a seminar, one needs support from number of persons who directly or indirectly contribute by way of discussing, interacting and guiding. It is impossible to thank all those who have helped in this seminar but I must express heartly gratitude to few of them. I sincerely thank to out H.O.D. Mrs. VINITA THANVI for her critical advice, valuable guidance, keen interest and encouragement which I have received throughtout the seminar. Her suggestions helped me a great deal in presenting this seminar. Last but not the least, I express my gratitude to our institution MAHILA P.G. MAHAVIDYALAYA, Jodhpur and faculty members of the department under whose efficient guidance I successfully or unnamed encouraged me in writing this report.

INTRODUCTION
A 3D Bio-Printer is a device, in which, a Human Organ is scanned, and a 3D dimension of a brand new organ is created and printed using the person’s own cell or stem cells as “ink.” With just a small amount of cell used from the patient’s body.

The 3D bio-printers include a software interface that allows engineers to build a model of the tissue construct before the printer commences the physical constructions of the organs cell-by-cell using the automated, laser-calibrated print heads. The printer is the result of collaboration between Australian engineering firm Invetech, and Organovo, a regenerative medicine company based in San Diego, California. Organovo selected Invetech in May 2009 as its technology development partner and asked the company to design and develop a highly integrated, extremely reliable and simple to use 3D bio-printer system, which could then be transferred to manufacture and commercial sale. Now, just eight months later, Invetech has delivered the first production model 3D bio-printer to Organovo. Invetech plan to ship a number of 3D bio-printers to Organovo during 2010 and 2011 and Organovo will be placing the printers globally with research institutions investigating human tissue repair and organ replacement.

Organovo CEO, Keith Murphy, says the bio-printer represents a breakthrough because they provide for the first time a flexible technology platform for organizations working on many different types of tissue construction and organ replacement.

The advantage of using a bioprinter is that it eliminates the need for a scaffold, so Dr Atala, too, is experimenting with inkjet technology. The Organovo machine uses stem cells...
