Sensors and video to keep quality on lock

Ensure quality of your print job from start to finish through sensors and video data. Save time by controlling the system from the touchscreen or the desktop software.

Extensive biomaterial offerings

Choose between our functionalized biomaterials developed at Nanoscribe, CELLINK and Advanced BioMatrix, or from externally available photoresins.


Game-changing bioprinting chamber

The chamber creates temperature and humidity controlled conditions, and a HEPA-filtered airflow with optional connections for pre-mixed air/CO2.

In-chip printing


Quantum X bio is a powerful 3D Microfabrication system that provides the flexibility and capabilities to print on a variety of substrates, including microfluidic systems for organ- or lab-on-a-chip applications. With these capabilities, microfluidics meets cell culture, enabling the creation of organoids.

Be prepared for live-cell printing

Quantum X bio provides all the features you need for printing with bioresins containing living cells – and keeping them alive. This allows you to explore exciting new applications like vascularized tissue printing, smart / living materials, topology for cell mechanics and migrations, sub-micron patterning and more.

Cultivate cells in 3D

Cultivate cells in 3D printed microwell arrays. Thanks to the use of biocompatible materials, the cells can attach and proliferate as seen in the fluorescent microscope image.

3D printed drug delivery

Due to the precise microfabrication technology, the Quantum X bio enables 3D printed drug delivery applications. The image demonstrates our technology’s ability to realize high aspect ratio.

And more applications

What is 2PP bioprinting?

2-photon polymerization (2PP) requires two photons to deliver the energy necessary to cause a photoreaction, and this only happens when two photons overlap in the same time and space (X, Y, and Z). The 2PP technique allows users to print into the photoresist which enables complex constructs to be printed without additional supports. Additionally, since two photons are required to trigger the photoreaction, the smallest feature size is confined to the volume where the two photons overlap, enabling submicron precision for the features!


Ready. Set. Print.

Organize and monitor your research project with our intuitive software and excellent data tracking. Generate, upload, print, and monitor your print job directly from the device’s touchscreen or remotely from your PC.

With Nanoscribe’s UX-optimized software solutions, inspired by a bioprinting library of proven STL models, and monitoring of sensor and video data during printing, it’s genuinely easy to achieve printing success.
