Pre-validated protocols for easy use

Working with pre-validated protocols allows you to produce 3D cellular models with minimal effort. The pre-loaded detailed plans cover everything from construct geometry to biomaterial selection to dispensing settings. Additionally, each protocol includes step-by-step instructions for upstream and downstream analysis, so there are no bottlenecks in your workflow as you transition to 3D cell culturing.

Select from protocols pre-loaded on your system or from an ever-growing database of protocols offered as cloud-based updates.

A patent pending system activates when the camera points at the nozzle tip, triggering an algorithm to automatically prime the nozzle ensuring the right droplet size.
From bioprinting to biodispensing

Further reducing the barriers to 3D cell culture for reproducible and fully automated workflows

Whereas bioprinters produce complex models, biodispensers create simpler models and droplets while greatly increasing throughput.

Biodispensing makes the creation of biomimetic models accessible to everyone. By focusing on droplets and simpler geometries, it ensures reproducibility and increases the speed at which models are created. Furthermore, biodispensing requires much less input from the user, allowing for an unparalleled plug-and-play experience.
