Black Drop supplies a variety of bioinks for different applications. The inks are optimized for printing using the BioPrintingCartridge system.
Black Drop BioInks can be delivered in two ways, either in a flask to be loaded in the printer on-site, or preloaded and ready to use in a Black Drop BioPrintingCartridge.
Delivery of a specific volume of bioink in a flask (5 ml, 10 ml, 20 ml). Depending on the ordered bioink type the delivery comprises separate substances that have to be prepared and mixed on-site.
The bioink is prepared and loaded into the BioPrintingCartridge at Black Drop. The client only needs to mount it to the printer and can start printing immediately. For cartridge delivery a deposit for the borrowed cartridge has to be payed, which will be refunded upon return of the cartridge.
Please note: cartridge delivery is only possible for selected Black Drop BioInks.
Each ink is delivered with a document describing the rheological behavior of the material, the optimal printing parameters (nozzle size, pressure), and the expected nozzle shear stress, which determines the post-printing cell viability.
