The 3D-Bioplotter is a versatile rapid prototyping tool for processing a great variety of biomaterials . The 3D-Bioplotter has the capacity of fabricating scaffolds using the widest range of materials of any singular rapid prototyping machine, from soft hydrogels over polymer melts up to hard ceramics and metals. Complex inner patterns can easily be designed using the 3D-Bioplotter software to control the mechanical properties, increase cell adhesion, as well as improve the flow of nutrient media throughout the interconnecting pores of the printed implants. The build volume (L x W x H) of the printer is 200 x 220 x 140 mm (7.87” x 8.66” x 5.51”).

Anton Paar Modular Compact Rheometer MCR 92
This rheometer is equipped with a highly accurate air-bearing motor for testing sensitive samples and can measure in both rotation and oscillation modes. The machine can test solids or low-viscosity liquids across a wide viscosity range. There is a motor that lifts up the measuring head automatically to a set measuring gap. The machine has a temperature device to cover a range from -40 °C up to 400 °C. the air-bearing-supported synchronous EC motor deploys a frictionless synchronous movement of the rotor inside that enables the most sensitive and therefore most precise movements.

Micro-Vu Vertex Automated Precision Measurement System
We are able to obtain high speed and high accuracy measurements using this system. This machine can both take color/monochrome images using a highly sensitive camera that has a 36:1 zoom range. The lighting angle ranges from 25 to 90 degrees and the LEDs have about a 10,000-hour lifespan. The machine is equipped with a touch probe, distance sensor, a rotary indexer, and InSpec Metrology Software. These allow for a variety of samples to be scanned and measured.

ADMET eXpert 7600
This single-column testing machine is capable of performing tension, compression, flexure, and peel/adhesion tests. The unit is capable of exerting a force up to 5 kN. The machine is ideal for testing high elongation materials since it is one of the industry’s largest vertical testing machines. ADMET also offers a wide range of grips, fixtures, load cells, extensometers, and heating/cooling systems. Modification of the stroke, speed, and torsion actuators for biaxial tests can be accommodated by ADMET as well.
