We fabricated living cell lines, cell wall and cell cylinder utilizing electrostatic inkjet phenomena. The inkjet phenomena have two merits, higher resolution than commercial printer and ability to eject highly viscous liquid. These merits were preferable to print liquid with cells precisely and to eject liquid with scaffolds that were relatively high viscosity. In spite that high voltage was applied in case of the electrostatic inkjet phenomena, cells were living because current did not flow through cells but around cells.
