Overview

Black and white image files are used by the Lumen X+ to separate 3D models into stacks of horizontal layers.

It improves a variety of applications, including macroporous structures, cell-filled hydrogels, and microfluidics.

Each image is projected onto a droplet of liquid PhotoInk™ on a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) vat using an industrial-grade visible-light projector.

The illuminated areas respond and solidify, and the build platform then lifts and clears the cured layer to make room for more liquid PhotoInk to be cured with the following image.

Key features

Details like never before

  • For applications requiring embedded cells, fluid absorption, and bulk solute exchange with channels as small as 150 µm, direct-printed microfluidic hydrogels from the Lumen X+ can be used in addition to or in place of PDMS.
  • Users will never have to struggle to simulate fluid exchange, cell adhesion, or water retention within the device or deal with laborious and time-consuming PDMS prototyping.
  • The Lumen X+ is the ideal partner for the quick manufacture of microfluidic channels and organ-on-a-chip devices, thanks to its speed, resolution, and biocompatible PhotoInks.

Unlock complexity

  • The potential for developing treatments that are unique to each patient lies in 3D-printed scaffolds. To precisely tailor porosity and mechanical properties in all dimensions, the Lumen X+ can construct scaffolds similar to trabecular bone polyhedral lattices.

Applications

Design

  • Create the specific model in the CAD program of preference that can be exported to a .stl file. Additionally, CELLINK provides a variety of .stl files to the Bioverse community.

Prepare

  • Choose the .stl file that the users would like to print, then carefully navigate the software’s tabs. Layer construction will be done automatically by the printer. The quantity of PhotoInk required for the design will be determined in the final step.

Print

  • Select Start Print and feel satisfaction. The Lumen X+ will predict how long it will take to finish printing after the first layer has been printed.

Post printing

  • The construct should be taken off the printing platform and cleaned in a water bath. Depending on the needs, keep the construct in PBS, water, or media.

Photoink tailored for user’s applications
