Overview

The Lumen X leverages digital light processing (DLP) printing to offer users high resolution, high throughput and high fidelity, enhancing applications in microfluidics, cell-laden hydrogels, macroporous structures and more. The BioPACIFIC MIP Lumen X bioprints with with near UV light (385 nm) and can achieve complex branching and tapering of vessels.

Advanced Functionality and Versatility

  • Compatible with a wide range of biocompatible photoinks.
  • Compared to extruded scaffolds, Lumen X scaffolds are significantly more isotropic, allowing users to control mechanical properties with geometry in all dimensions.
  • DLP technology coupled with Volumetric PhotoInks allow the Lumen X to build watertight channels in hydrogels with greater consistency and precision than extrusion.
