How it Works

BioBot - Advanced Solutions

Through the seamless integration with TSIM® 3D tissue models can be designed within the parameters of BioBot™’s unique circular stage. The Turret dispensing print head allows for automated selection and exchange of material via it’s inherent revolving motion. Experiments that require 3D tissue structures printed on glass slides, petri dishes, or multi-well plates, can all be completed on the ease with this benchtop system.
