A recognized world leader in biofabrication, EnvisionTEC’s 3D-Bioplotter family of bioprinters is being used for groundbreaking medical research and manufacturing, such as organ and tissue engineering, among other amazing things. With three levels of functionality, this printer family processes open-source biomaterials using air or mechanical pressure to a syringe, which can fabricate scaffolds. These printers have been designed for use in a sterile biosafety cabinet. Build sizes up to 192.4 cubic inches.
The 3D-Bioplotter Starter Series is designed for research groups new to the field of tissue engineering with few requirements in parallel material processing and automation. It consists of the same basic hardware and software as the other two 3D-Bioplotter models, but lacks modular capability and platform temperature control. The 3D-Bioplotter Starter Series comes with 2 fixed high-temperature heads.
The 3D-Bioplotter Developer Series is designed for research groups new to the field of tissue engineering, as well as for specialized use, where limited capability may still meet requirements. It consists of the same basic hardware and software as the Manufacturer Series with reduced functionality regarding camera and park positions, but is still capable of using a UV curing head and an optional heated platform.
The 3D-Bioplotter System is a versatile rapid prototyping tool for processing a great variety of biomaterials for computer-aided tissue engineering (CATE), from 3D CAD models and patient CT data to the physical 3D scaffold with a designed and defined outer form and an open inner structure.
