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.
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 applications: from trying out new shapes and patterns using a cheap material; through making technical parts (e.g. gaskets); to medical device casings
