What is 2PP bioprinting?

2-photon polymerization (2PP) needs two photons to provide the energy that has been essential to produce a photoreaction. Also, this only happens when two photons tend to overlap in the same time and space (X, Y, and Z).

The 2PP method enables users to print into the photoresist, allowing complicated constructs to be printed without extra support. Besides, since two photons are needed to activate the photoreaction, the smallest feature size has been limited to the volume where the two photons overlap, allowing submicron precision for the features!

Ready. set. print.

Users can organize and track their research projects with the help of intuitive software and outstanding data tracking. Also, they can generate, upload, print, and track their print job instantly from the touchscreen of the device or remotely from their PC.

With the availability of Nanoscribe’s UX-optimized software solutions, inspired by a bioprinting library of proven STL models, and tracking of sensor and video data at the time of printing, it is genuinely simple to obtain printing success.
