This printer has a single extruder (bio-head). It uses a standard BD 10mL syringe with interchangeable luer-lock tips. This printer can print a variety of materials including, but is not limited to; gelatin, alginate, chitosan, collagen, etc. The limitation of printing is the material viscosity. Thick materials combined with extremely small tips may prove to be more difficult to print, compared to thinner materials and larger tips. You can print from a Windows or Mac PC using a USB connection or print from 3D model files stored on a microSD card without the need for a computer connection. This printer is easy to use and setup.
- Micron scale resolution.
- A nozzle that is available in any biology lab. Yes – this means no extra operating cost to buy new tips every time you need to print.
- A heated nozzle and print bed to maintain a cell friendly environment or to manipulate material viscosity.
- A small footprint for portability and to be placed within the smallest bio-hood for 100% sterile printing.
- Print a variety of cells and biomaterials. If you’re in the biofabrication field, this is a must have!
