A recognized world leader in biofabrication, ETEC’s 3D-Bioplotter system is being used for groundbreaking medical research and biomedical manufacturing. Launched in 2000, the 3D-Bioplotter is the most seasoned bioprinter in the market, backed by the most research, with 450+ research papers to date.
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.
Three levels of functionality — Starter, Developer and Manufacturer
This family of bioprinters, processes open-source biomaterials using air or mechanical pressure to a syringe, which can fabricate scaffolds to create tissue, organs and more. Our bioprinters are extremely accurate with X-Y repeatability down to 1 μm. All models have been designed for use in a sterile biosafety cabinet, meet standards for clinical trials and offer build sizes up to 192.4 cubic inches.
If you are interested in any of these series we can connect you with the ETEC Biofabrication Team to discuss your needs.
3D-BIOPLOTTER® STARTER SERIES
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.
3D-BIOPLOTTER® DEVELOPER SERIES
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 but with reduced park position functionality. It is still capable of using multiple modular head types and an optional heated platform.
3D-BIOPLOTTER® MANUFACTURER SERIES
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.
