CELLINK Bio X designed for printing viable human organs

The printer uses bioinks to create structures infused with living cells.

Students and faculty in East Carolina University’s College of Engineering and Technology had the chance to see and discuss the operation of a 3D bioprinter, technology that could lead to the printing of viable human organs.

The CELLINK Bio X is a standalone 3D bioprinter that is designed for user friendliness, allowing the possibility of hands-on student use. It looks and operated much like a normal 3D printer but uses soft materials and cells instead of plastic.

It was neat to see how simple it is and how easy it would be to integrate with other 3D printing systems, and let the students learn about this technology.
