Tethon 3D launches low-cost bioprinter on the market

The 3D printing provider Tethon 3D, which specializes in technical ceramic materials, has introduced a bioprinter. The Bison Bio DLP 3D printer system is based on a design from Carima and is compatible with Tethon’s light-curing photoinitiators and the company’s own GelMA hydrogel.

The biocompatible GelMA hydrogel is used in regenerative medicine, for example for 3D-printed scaffolds for cell and tissue culture. It was developed in collaboration with the company Cell Bark.

The Bison Bio has numerous setting options that allow users to experiment with their own materials – always taking cell compatibility into account. The price is just 20,000 US dollars. This makes the entry price considerably higher. The biocompatible materials are also available in small quantities from 2 grams.
