Explore the most user-friendly and flexible bioprinter in the world
While we offer an extensive portfolio of biomaterials, we understand the necessity and importance to make the BIO X compatible with the widest range of biomaterials available.
Thanks to built-in UV sterilization and a HEPA filter, our patented Clean Chamber™ technology, the BIO X brings the sterility of the biosafety cabinet to the benchtop.
Our range of intelligent printheads brings users of the BIO X the utmost flexibility and interchangeability. The printheads are developed to suit many different biofabrication projects.
DNA Studio 4 Compatible
Advanced functionality and versatility
Streamline your workflows in a wide range of application areas.
The BIO X’s compatibility with virtually any material makes it the bioprinter of choice for industry leaders at the forefront of today’s biggest scientific breakthroughs. Whether you are automating 3D cell cultures, developing complex tissue constructs or testing new drug compounds, the BIO X 3D bioprinter has the advanced functionality and versatility to streamline workflows in a wide range of application areas.
Patented Clean Chamber for better cell safety
Dual high-powered fans channel air through a HEPA H14 filter to remove 99.995% of unwanted particles and microorganisms as part of the Clean Chamber™ technology, which also includes UV-C germicidal lights, rounded edges and positive air pressure.
Initiate Clean Chamber before beginning your experiment to ensure full sterility around the print area for the duration of the print.
Open material platform, bioprint with the widest range of materials.
Universal biomaterial compatability
We offer an extensive portfolio of bioinks but understand the importance of material development, which is why we built the BIO X to be an open system that is compatible with the widest range of materials available. Start developing your own bioinks with our high-quality bioink development products or explore our ready-to-print bioinks.
Excellent temperature control
Grow your research with multiple, interchangeable, Intelligent Printheads
BIO X is the first 3D bioprinter in the world with Intelligent Printheads (iPH), ensuring your research is always at the forefront.
With an ever-growing list of Intelligent Printheads, the possibilities are limitless, giving you more freedom to push your research further. Our family of intelligent printheads is always growing. Each printhead system is made to suit different biofabrication application, which helps ensure the best possible result for your 3D bioprint.
Designed to do even more
The BIO X’s exceptional features maximize versatility to enhance your success in the following application areas and beyond.
Three-dimensional cell cultures offer multiple advantages over 2D cell cultures, including the precise geometrical arrangement of multicellular constructs that can better recapitulate the native 3D human physiology. Extrusion-based bioprinters such as the BIO X offers great flexibility when designing 3D cell culture systems, as they allow researchers to precisely control geometries and the spatial patterning of cells and other biomaterials.
The merger of bioprinting and microfluidics opens the door to on-demand and personalized organ-on-a-chip models and may replace many preclinical steps in future drug trials. The BIO X, combined with microfluidic systems like the VasKit perfusion system allow for complex organ-chip models; and multi-printhead technology can be used in a one-step fabrication design with spatial heterogeneity of tissues.
The BIO X allows for 3D bioprinting with up to three printheads, enabling multi-material and multi-cell flixbility during small and large tissue engineering. The world’s your oyster.
