The world’s most accurate 3D bioprinter
The Quantum X bio is an exceptionally capable, versatile bioprinter with the highest resolution available. Powered by Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) and grounded in engineering excellence, the proprietary technology is customized and reimagined through the eyes of a biologist.
The light-based 3D bioprinter offers essential features such as precise temperature and humidity control, HEPA-filtered airflow and an optional connection for pre-mixed air/CO2. A variety of functionalized biomaterials can be used to unlock a new level of bioprinting and effectively accelerate innovation in tissue engineering, microbiology, materials engineering and biomedical devices.

Benefit from a comprehensive library of STL models provided jointly by CELLINK and Nanoscribe. Instead of spending hours creating designs in CAD, simply select a design from our database, download it and customize it to your needs. The designs provided are inspired by biological and biomedical applications. The designs are scalable, so you can use them not only on the Quantum X bio but also on other bioprinters such as CELLINK’s BIONOVA X or BIO X6. This is your fast track to printing success.
DeScribeX is a print job development software for creating custom 3D prints. The built-in import wizard can load STL files as a widely used 3D CAD format. Pre-installed software printing parameter presets are perfect starting points that guide you to a successful print in just a few steps. The export function makes it easy to transfer the print job to the Quantum X bio remotely.
