Generation 3 of the BIO X6 harnesses the power of the most advanced bioprinting software available today.

Advanced functionality and versatility.

3D bioprinting with total control of your process.

BIO X6 has you covered however you want your lab set up. The intuitive, onboard software allows you to work from the included tablet or a computer.

Control every aspect of your print from the intuitive and easy-to-use DNA Studio software on your tablet or laptop. Whether it is multilayer printing, layer-by-layer crosslinking, custom material definition or even protocol saving, the BIO X6 software has it all.

Patented Clean Chamber for better cell safety

Built-in UV sterilization and a HEPA filter bring the sterility of the biosafety cabinet to the benchtop.

Four 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 X6, part of the BIO X series, 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 and tissue-specific bioinks.

Excellent temperature control

Bioprint with a wider range of materials and cell types thanks to precise printhead and printbed temperature control.
With a printhead temperature range of 4°C to 250°C and a printbed temperature range between 4°C and 65°C, enjoy precise control of temperatures when working with temperature-sensitive materials like collagen and gelatin. The possibilities are limitless when you are able to work with a wider range of materials and cell types.

Grow your research with multiple, interchangeable, Intelligent Printheads

Leverage multiple biofabrication modalities on one system with a total of 8 available printheads and toolheads.

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.
