Lulzbot LulzBot Bio Open Source FRESH-Certified 3D Bio Printer
Lulzbot is once again revolutionizing the field of additive manufacturing. Lulzbot has created an open-source, affordable bioprinter, made in the USA; The Bio. In a collaboration with FluidForm, researchers and technicians can use LifeSupport, a biocompatible support gel for bioprinting research, as the 3D printing medium for collagen, alginate, bio-inks, and other soft materials using FDF (fluid deposition fabrication). The “FRESH” (Freeform Reversible Embedding of Suspended Hydrogels) 3D printing process the Bio utilizes was developed in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon University, where the syringe pump system deposits material in the LifeSupport medium, which is a thermoreversible support gel, that is then dissolved to reveal the 3D printed biomaterial.

UTILIZE 3D PRINTED BIOTISSUE TO REVOLUTIONIZE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
3D printing is undergoing the next big paradigm expansion with the exciting new technology of bioprinting, which will rapidly expand the materials and systems to innovate pharmaceutical development, cosmetic testing, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. 3D bioprinted tissues can be used as phantom organs that behave just like actual organs or tissue mimics which behave just like actual tissues for surgeon training or graduate research within hospitals and labs. Pharmaceutical organizations can use bioprinted tissues to better predict the efficacy and toxicology of potential drugs early on in the drug discovery process. Even chefs experimenting with molecular gastronomy can design and execute complex and fancy foods, drinks and desserts that have heretofore only been dreamed of. Upgrade your lab, university, hospital or research center today with the LulzBot Bio.
OPEN SOURCE AND MADE IN THE USA FOR FUTURE PROOFING NEW BIOPRINTING DEVELOPMENTS
Although the Bio is capable of 3D printing with several materials like collagen, alginate, and bio-inks now, the open-source utility of the Bio means that undiscovered materials and processes can be incorporated into future applications quickly and easily without proprietary restrictions. Researchers and lab technicians will be able to modify and tweak the settings of the Bio to conform to their newly discovered, specific needs. As fast as researchers and industries can innovate, the Bio can grow to fill those needs.
OPEN NEW AND INNOVATIVE AREAS OF ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
Utilizing the capabilities of the Bio 3D bioprinter, anyone can move into experimenting and creating products that can include wearable sensors, customized body-contacting surfaces, surgical models, lighter and stronger components for aerospace and automotive needs, as well as 3D printing with silicones, urethanes, liquid metals, epoxies and more. With the semi-liquid medium as well as the ability to 3D print with unconventional materials, the possibilities for innovation are endless.
OVERCOME GRAVIMETRIC EFFECTS BY 3D PRINTING IN SUPPORT GEL
By 3D printing materials in the LifeSupport gel, the effects of gravity on the printed material can be almost eliminated, giving researchers a greatly expanded catalog of known and soon to be discovered materials. Because the materials are printed in support gel, this allows for the design and fabrication of unlimited geometries and multiple materials imbedded within one another in a single print.
