Abstract

Bioprinting, an additive manufacturing technique, has become the cynosure of research and industry world alike. This emerging technology holds the promise of constructing artificial tissues and organs in future. This paper overviews the current state in bioprinting technology, distinguishes between different types of techniques and describes the bio-inks. Current challenges and limitations inhibiting the growth of this field are also discussed.
