CELLINK has this week unveiled a new addition to their range of Bioprinters with the launch of the new BIO X printer which provides tissue engineers with both Pneumatic and syringe extrusion technologies in one system.
CELLINK is the first bioink company in the world and is also the creator of the world’s first universal bioink enabling scientists and tissue engineers to bioprint using any type of cells.
For those unfamiliar with bionic technology 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”, explains CELLINK.

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.
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
