Designed for live cell printing
The new tight temperature control, a smooth printing mechanism, and sterility across the printing workflow, join together to increase cell viability. The autoclavable build platform has increased reusability without compromising on sterility.
Accurately tune the stiffness of your material and create biomechanical gradients on demand to capture the finer details of in-vivo biology
Tight Temperature Control
Work with a wider than ever range of materials or focus on studying the thermal properties of a single material by setting the temperature anywhere between room temperature and 60 degrees Celsius.
Consistent prints - every time
With a uniform distribution of intensity across the entire build platform, the LUMEN X™ Gen 3 ensures consistent crosslinking of photoinks independent of position. Levelling up the ability for array printing.
Precise and complex printing
An intuitive software combined with high feature resolution and optimized photoinks makes working on organ-on-a-chip models and developing microfluidic chips an effortless experience.
Modular build platforms
With an expanded range of build platforms, print a variety of model sizes and materials with ease and say goodbye to unnecessary waste of photoinks.
The new standard for light bioprinting
Understanding the printing mechanism
The LUMEN X™ is optimized to build solid hydrogel structure by beginning with a droplet of light-sensitive, liquid PhotoInk™ hydrogels in a vat. Learn more about available biomaterials further down.
Building life, one layer at a time.
Complex microfluidic structures
With high precision and resolution, the LUMEN X™ Gen 3 enables the creation of complex microfluidic structures with intricate geometries for controlled fluid flow. Users can work directly with cells or seed them later. The LUMEN X™ eliminates lengthy casting processes and finally brings a much-desired, time and cost-effective solution for reproducible microfluidic fabrication.
Develop your own materials without workarounds
The LUMEN X™ allows users to develop and use their own materials without workarounds or extra fees, opening the door for the development of materials with unique properties and novel tissue engineering applications. With precision control over all key parameters like temperature, intensity and exposure times, researchers can glean a greater understanding of their material’s behavior.
Addressing tissue-engineering challenges
Supported by the DLP technology, the LUMEN X™ enables researchers to address one of the most long-standing challenges – fabricating complex vascular networks. Coupled with grayscale printing onboard for the first time ever, the LUMEN X™ Gen 3 truly unlocks a new degree of capability in capturing in-vivo like conditions.
Providing greater insights & lowering costs
With LUMEN X™ Gen 3, we’re able to provide greater insight into the efficiency of medicinal candidates. With greyscale printing allowing multi-stiffness constructs, an increased build size, it is easier than ever to create diseased or healthy tissue constructs with fully accurate biomimetic properties. These constructs are ready to be dosed with compounds for evaluation in the early-stage compound selection process.
