The Facts Behind Our Design

SMALL FOOTPRINT

BioBot 1 is the first desktop 3D bioprinter. With a measurement of only 12 inches cubed, BioBot 1 was designed to fit into any bio-safety hood to ensure the system is easy to use and easy to sterilize within your existing work environment.

ACCESSIBLE

We designed BioBot 1 to be the most accessible 3D bioprinter in the world. It is easy to upload designs, choose biomaterials, and print tissues. We support the use of standard lab dishes, whether that’s circular petri dishes or 96 well plates.

VISIBLE LIGHT TECHNOLOGY

BioBot 1 uses visible blue light to cure biomaterials rapidly without damaging cells.

DUAL EXTRUDER SYSTEM

BioBot 1 includes two heated extruder heads, with temperatures ranging from room temperature to 120°C.

OPEN SYSTEM

The cartridge houses two disposable BD syringes, making it easy to switch between materials and ensure sterility. Users can choose any bioink that can be extruded from a syringe.

PRESSURE DRIVEN

BioBot 1 runs off of a compressed air pneumatic system, making it very easy to achieve clean starts and stops in printing. Pressure ranges between 0 and 100 PSI accommodate a wide range of viscous materials.

PRECISION

Our team of engineers has worked hard to ensure precision in every aspect of BioBot 1. We use linear rails over less expensive belt systems that slip and require adjustment, guaranteeing a consistent 10 micron precision on each axis.

Testimonials

  • "Working with BioBots has allowed us to embark on new directions in research to answer important questions in tissue engineering and disease modeling. The bioprinters are cleverly designed, cost-efficient, and very user friendly. The company itself is forward-thinking, energetic, and truly committed to helping scientists make advances in 3D bioprinting."

    Angela Panoskaltsis-Mortari, PhD | University of Minnesota | Mortari Lab

  • "We love the versatility of our Biobot - we’re using it to study all sorts of tissues, and its portability lets us bring it to the optimal location to print each tissue type"

    Kara Spiller Phd | Drexel University | Spiller Lab

  • "The instrument is ready for use. The platform is flexible. It is easy to maintain."

    Dayu Teng, Phd | University of California San Diego | Chien Lab

  • "We are very glad to be one of the labs that bought this printer and explored its function. In general, this system is very convenient to use, the interface is user friendly, and the printer works stable. I personally like it very much."

    ZaoZao Chen, PhD | Columbia University | Leong Lab

  • "We are using the technology to look at creating heart valves from various biopolymers and biocompatible synthetic polymers that are compelling as the future of heart valve replacements."
