CELLINK launches new BIO X6 six-printhead bioprinting platform

The new systems is designed for flexibility in multi-material bioink extrusion

Swedish bioprinter manufacturer CELLINK is officially introducing the BIO X6, a new six-printhead bioprinting platform that enables users to combine more materials, cells and tools than any other system currently on the market. The product is the only bioprinter that combines six printheads with CELLINK’s patented Clean Chamber Technology and intelligent exchangeable printhead technology.

CELLINK’s mission is to provide innovative technologies to aid the most cutting-edge scientific research projects focusing on bioprinted tissues. The ability to proficiently build multi-material tissue is considered to be paramount in the quest for functional bioprinted replacement organs. The BIO X6 is thus positioning itself as an ideal platform for meeting the needs of advanced tissue engineers, regenerative medicine labs and cancer biologists that require high-throughput bioprinting and dispensing.

“Organs and tissues are comprised of many different cell types. With the BIO X6, users can combine six or more cell types to print advanced organ and tissue models,” said Itedale Namro Redwan, Chief Scientific Officer at CELLINK. “The BIO X6 gives the user freedom to combine multiple materials in one print, and the capability to create more complex architectures. Being able to use different pressures, temperatures and printing methods simultaneously in six different positions is revolutionary. Users can mix the cells in each printhead with a tailored bioink, providing the cells with the biological environment they need to achieve the desired architecture.”




The new technology, based on CELLINK’s award-winning BIO X platform, was developed by CELLINK in order to advance research and clinical applications in the bioprinting field. The system comes with a movable arm mount, enabling multiple possibilities in one system. Users can either control through a Wi-Fi connection or through a detachable tablet on the movable arm mount.

As has been the case in all of CELLINK’s recent new product announcements, the new product is already available to order.
