bio-ink
 n.— «Here’s how it works: A customized milling machine prints a small sheet of bio-paper. This “paper” is a variable gel composed of modified gelatin and hyaluronan, a sugar-rich material. Bio-ink blots—each a little ball of cellular material a few hundred microns in diameter—are then printed onto the paper. The process is repeated as many times as needed, the sheets stacked on top of each other.» —“Printing Organs on Demand” by Rachel Metz Wired Dec. 5, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
