- With today’s 3D bioprinters, two separate extruders are typically used; one for laying down a “bioink” and another for laying down the cells onto that ink. With CELLINK, the cells and the bioink may be mixed together as one in a process that allows a single nozzle on a bioprinter to lay down both the bioink and the cells all at once.
- The company, which has showed off this technology by 3D printing miniature ears, currently is looking to expand their presence and increase the types of human tissue capable of being printed.
- As for the CELLINK Bioink, it is now available for purchase, starting at $99.00 for 3ml or $199 for 10ml. Of course you probably want to know what you are doing before you try and 3D print living cells.
