Extrusion 3D bioprinting
Based on computer numerical control (CNC) machining processes, extrusion-based bioprinting precisely dispenses bio-compatible materials layer by layer, following tool paths generated in slices from 3D models. Our extrusion-based 3D bioprinters are designed with flexibility in mind to give bioengineers the freedom to work with a wider range of biomaterials, opening the door for more relevant tissue engineering.
Light-based 3D bioprinting
Adapted from stereolithography (SLA) processes, light-based bioprinting produces constructs by initiating chemical reactions that solidify or cure bioinks only where they have been illuminated. With multiple types of light-based technologies, like digital light processing (DLP), they are typically much faster because they cure whole layers simultaneously. Thanks to small points of light in the millions, light-based bioprinters are also able to recreate more intricate details at much higher resolutions.
