Cells rigid effectively reduce the printing cost _ rigid, woodblock printing, living cells printing, inkjet printing
With the development of science and technology, new technology emerge in endlessly.
Recently scientists will Chinese woodblock printing, printing introduction of living cells, not only ensure the cell survival rate also contributed to the reduced the printing cost.
According to the report, from China's woodblock printing, demands a high degree of nearly 20 years and more are used in the molecular printing.
Zhang kai's team found that they called cell rigidity (
Woodblock printing, can be in any surface to print all biological cells into a variety of shapes, it need half an hour, living cells can be flat printed, nearly 100% survival rate.
In addition, woodblock printing mould cost will be $1 (
Compared with inkjet printing needs tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Originated in China's printing made great contributions in cultural transmission, it has also appeared in cell research field recently.
According to the Oriental Hong Kong newspaper reported on February 13, a scientific team led by Chinese scientists in the United States, China will be one thousand years ago to the woodblock printing, printing introduction of living cells, is widely used in laboratory for years living cells compared samples printing ink jet printing, the printing way with Chinese characteristics can not only improve living cell survival, expand the cell shape of printing, will also be able to cut costs.

He said: woodblock printing is a convenient technique, it have revolutionized the printing industry.
Inkjet printing not only it is hard to single cell layer of flat, printed effect sometimes exist error.
The major disadvantages is that living cells after printing the survival rate of only 50% to 80%.
The research results have been published in the proceedings of the national academy of sciences (
