    Inkjets may soon repair fractured arms 2005

    Scientists at the University of Manchester in England think they’ll soon be
    able to repair fractured arms and help other medical conditions by using inkjet
    nozzles that spray live human cells onto the patient.  The technology is being
    developed in cooperation with British inkjet manufacturer Xaar who are refining
    their equipment for human cell delivery.  While bone replacement will likely be
    the first application put into use, they are also working on tissue engineering
    cartilage and blood vessels.  They are cautious to point out, however, that a
    lot more work still needs to be done in order to ensure that the cells are not
    altered in some way by the delivery process.
