Three dimensional bioprinting is the modern technique extensively used in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering for the development of multifaceted biological structures such as complex tissues and organs. Computer aided design (CAD) is being used to design complicated three dimensional structures. After designing the desired structure, next step of bioprinting involves the deposition of “bio inks” in the designed shapes. These bio inks are enriched with living cells and any medium supporting and nourishing these cells. Various bioprinters and bio inks based on agarose, collagen, hyaluronic acid, fibrin, Matrigel and pluronic® F-12 are discussed with respect to the advantages, disadvantages and suitability in the development of complex 3D biostructures. 3D bioprinting technology is a futuristic approach for tissue engineering and synthesis of other biological structures with greater feasibility which will help to overcome the hurdles in all medical fields.
