This project is focused on retrofitting an off-the-shelf printer to print biomaterials by using a microfluidic process called hydrodynamic focusing. Hydrodynamic focusing by means of disposable printheads would allow a printer to cheaply and easily print multiple biomaterials out of a single printhead. This design and prototype will serve as a proof of concept for future iterations which will be able to print multiple materials, including cells, in three dimensions, and in a sterile environment.
