Novel Bioprinting Print Head Concept Available Shortly
Brinter will soon release a totally new bioprinting print head concept – a pneumatic dispensing head with a cooling option together with an integrated UV/Vis LED module. The cooling function will enable a constant temperature from 4 °C to RT throughout the print head syringe barrel. In addition, the print head is equipped with UV/Vis LED module emitting at three different wavelengths, from which the user can choose the most appropriate one for the job: 365 nm, 405 nm or 450 nm. It allows in situ photocrosslinking of photosensitive bioinks during the extrusion, hence enabling the printing of non-viscous bioinks, which might not be printable otherwise without the use of rheological additives.
