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 Manufacturer Series was designed as a tool for advanced tissue engineering and also for use in a production environment. It is the most versatile and advanced of the 3D-Bioplotter options and is capable of utilizing up to 5 materials in a build as well as UV curing capabilities and both heated and cooled platform options.
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.
This sugar derivative can easily be processed as a melt in prolonged jobs with no measurable degradation. The material is biocompatible and cell friendly, ensuring that residue material does not negatively affect the final object’s biological properties.
LT Support RG can easily be processed as a hydrogel in short to medium long jobs. The material is biocompatible and cell friendly, ensuring that residue materials do not negatively affect the final object's biological properties.
Polycaprolactone (PCL) is one of the most versatile thermoplastic materials for Tissue Engineering Applications. With little thermal degradation, it is an excellent material for large, time-consuming parts.
This very versatile material can be used for numerous demo appllications: from trying out new shapes and patterns using a cheap material; through making technical parts (e.g. gaskets); to medical device casings
