Tomolite leverages our contactless tomographic illumination technology to shape sensitive cells and biomaterials into biological systems, without impairing their viability. Volumetric printing not only preserves cells but also makes research more efficient by simplifying design iterations and statistical studies.
Centimeter-scale structures are fabricated within a few tens of seconds, making both design iterations and statistical studies straightforward.
With our ultrafast printing process, cells spend very little time outside of an incubator. The low photoinitiator contents also considerably limits cytoxicity.
Sensitive cells and biomaterials are shaped without contact through sealed glass vials, which can be sterilized in an autoclave.
Our optical approach can define three-dimensional light dose distributions with a resolution below 100 µm, regardless of print size.
Our software Apparite directly imports STL files of the construct and gives full control over object and print parameters.
Go beyond simple grids. Thick or thin, hollow or overhanging, complex organic shapes are printed easily with Tomolite.
