Our story

As part of BICO, the world’s leading bioconvergence company, we offer premium bioinks, bioprinters and services that enable critical breakthroughs in 3D cell culturing, tissue engineering and drug development.

History

By releasing the first universal bioink in 2016, we democratized the cost of entry for researchers around the world and played a major role in turning the then up-and-coming field of 3D bioprinting into the thriving $1 billion industry it is today. Our best-in-class bioinks, bioprinters, software and services are being used by the foremost academics and R&D labs and have enabled critical breakthroughs in a wide range of applications from 3D cell culturing to tissue engineering to drug development. CELLINK is dedicated to taking the on-demand biofabrication of human organs and tissues to the next level, in line with BICO’s vision to leverage bioconvergence in the life sciences and create the future of medicine.

Four years. 1,800 scientists. 60 countries.

In 2016, CELLINK commercialized the world’s first bioink, a biomaterial innovation eight years in the making. That milestone was the first of many along the company’s four-year journey to become the world’s leading bioprinting company with systems used to optimize cell-based applications.

Our products have been adopted by researchers around the world in more than 55 countries, 18 of the top 20 global pharmaceutical companies, close to 1,000 laboratories, and have been cited in over 90 publications on tissue engineering, biomaterials, and cell culturing applications.

CELLINK’s products are trusted by more than 1,000 laboratories, including ones at all the top 20 pharmaceutical companies, are being used in more than 65 countries, and have been cited in more than 1,600 publications.

Cellink Bio X Rating: 5
Application Area: Bioprinting to generate tissue/organ
Very user-friendly technique, therefore all students in my lab can bioprint! Three printer heads can make the most complicated structures and cell combinations with fast speed, high quality and always reproducible results. I am so pleased about my BioX, can´t wait for the next version. I highly recommend this bioprinter.

Inkredible+ : The Truly Incredible Bioprinter That Researchers Can Trust

Cellink Inkredible+ Rating: 5
Application Area: Immuno-Oncology
We have been using Inkredible+ 3D bio-printer for about 1.5 years. We were one of the early adopters of Inkredible+ (BioX was not on the market then, unfortunately) when there was almost no user feedback on the internet. We initially shortlisted two bio-printers (the other being a Philly-based 3D bio-printer company). There was a clear difference in CellInk’s customer approach, product robustness, and confidence in their products, all of which made CellInk stand alone in the market of 3D bioprinting. We trusted the company and now looking back we think it was not a wrong decision to go with CellInk. The technical team has been very helpful in designing different biological structure/models whenever needed. The bioprinter itself is very robust, we never had a mechanical or electrical failure. CellInk also offers different bioinks, which the end users should optimize for their specific research applications. The software side of the instrument is not well developed yet. An integrated single software that can design/draw a model, generate/edit G codes, is yet to arrive. End users can benefit from Bioverse, an useful platform (yet less publicized) to share ideas, designs, and codes. To sum up, Inkredible+ is really incredible: a very good bioprinter, within budget, and from a company who doesn’t forget their customers after selling their products.

Application Area: 3D-Bioprinting of skin and bone constructs
BIO X 3D-bioprinter is an easy to use out of the box piece of equipment with straight forward operating menu. Its design allows clean, sterile, and accurate bioprints. Through the BIO X bioprinter, CELLINK is close to the client with support not only on technical level, but also on scientific level providing various 3D-Printing technologies and bioinks. The CELLINK team is open to suggestions for improvements on their systems as well as custom made solutions. The purchasing of the equipment, training on the operation and after sales service was a pleasant and responsive procedure!

Cellink Bio X Rating: 5
Application Area: Scaffold printing
The BioX is extremely easy to use straight out of the box. I was able to get a couple of hydrogels printing within the first couple hours using the equipment. When new users are interested in learning to bioprint, this is the printer I start them out on before introducing them to more complex instruments. Of course, the simplicity to use comes with some slight drawbacks. The BioX doesn’t give quite as many options to use multiple materials in a single print like you can achieve with some other printers. The material choices are restricted to the infill, perimerter, and support of your single object that you are printing. Other printers enable printing of multiple objects at once with different materials, giving you slightly more options. However, those attributes are only necessary in certain applications, so we’ve found good uses for the BioX that complement our use of other bioprinters. For the price, this one is extraordinarily difficult to beat.

The product offers an amazing ease of use. The user doesn’t have to be an expert in the field to get started using the printer and the bioinks. Right out of the box the system is usable and it even comes preloaded with printable files so that you can test things out right away. It also comes with bioinks which is nice as our lab currently doesn’t have the capabilities to make our own materials. The system also comes with a built in clean environment, which is super helpful because we don’t have to put the printer inside our already crammed hoods.

My favorite thing about this printer is how easy it is to use. When going through the different screens everything is very intuitive and having the ability to use 3 different inks during a print is a huge plus!! Also the CELLINK team is so helpful with questions and always responds very quickly whether it’s through email or the chat feature on their website.

Every lab considering to buy a bioprinter should take a hard look at the BIO X system. It has also been a great pleasure to know some fantastic people working at the company. On behalf of all my lab members and doctoral advisor, I would like to thank Cellink for providing us with an ideal platform to pursue our research
