Bioinks creating new opportunities → CELLINK is the first bioink company in the world and is also the creator of the world’s first universal bioink. This opens up the opportunity for scientists to bioprint using any type of cells. CELLINK also provides a wide range of bioinks for different applications. A bioink is a hydrogel biomaterial that is suitable for bioprinting and it provides a temporary support to the cells while they produce their own extracellular matrix.

BIO X is the new go-to bioprinter for life science companies, researchers and innovators who work with bioprinting. Built to meet the needs of today’s bio-scientists, BIO X’s responsive Neocortex M1 internal computer allows the user to orchestrate the intricate process of building human tissues. BIO X is the most user friendly bioprinter on the market and complete standalone product with features scientist have been waiting for:

  • Bioprint human tissues with a wide range of biomaterials that mimic the cell’s native environment. Whether it’s tissues like heart, skin,cartilage or bone, the user has full control on the selection of biomaterial for their tissue application.
  • User exchangeable, intelligent printheads with a wide range of features, such as cooling, heating and different extrusion methods, which make it possible to bioprint a wide range of bioinks and cells with minimal effort.
  • Equipped with our patent pending Clean Chamber Technology through HEPA filtration.
  • Ability to control the temperature of the printbed to widen the selection of printable biomaterials.

The easy-to-use BIO X software is designed to guide the user in every step of the way to simplify the bioprinting process.

Bioprinting utilizes 3D-printing technology combined with bioink to create complex 3-dimensional structures. By using bioink the structures can be built with living cells to create real, living tissue. The additive technique ensures precision and flexibility when it comes to the placement of cells and different cell types. The bioprinting technology opens up for a wide range of different applications. For example, bioprinting in bone cells, skin cells or tissues for internal organs. These tissues can then be used for oncology research, drug testing, high-through-put drug screening or testing of cosmetic compounds.
