bio-ink
 n.— «For years, tissue engineers have used souped-up printers, and in some cases off-the-shelf models, to print “bio-inks.” These inks consist of anything from proteins to individual cells printed in microscopic patterns. By printing layer upon layer of cell patterns, scientists may one day be able to “print” whole tissues or organs for replacement therapies.» —“Printing Muscle and Bone” by Jennifer Chu Technology Review Dec. 19, 2006.
