3D bioprinting is among the most innovative technologies in the world today. It involves creating human tissues using biomaterials as 'inks' and printing layer-by-layer to create living structures. These formed structures mimic the behavior of their natural living counterparts and are used for pharmaceutical development, drug validation, and bioengineering.
Here are some of the world’s most innovative 3D Bioprinting startups:
Located in the US, CELLiNK develops some of the best 3D bioprinters, inks, and technologies on the market. This technology enables breakthroughs in 3D cell culturing, and drug development. It was the first company to release the first universal bioink in 2016 and has played a crucial role in turning 3D bioprinting into a multi-billion dollar industry.
Located in the US, ALLEVI develops 3D bioprinters and bioinks to test novel drugs, cure diseases, and eliminate the organ waitlist. It uses a special bioink combined with biomaterials to build living 3D tissue and human organs for their clients.
Located in the US, Organovo Holdings develops therapeutics and drug profiling capabilities based on 3D bioprinting tissues that mimic the critical aspects of diseases and their biology. It also has a proprietary 3D printing platform that generates human tissue that can be used in research, drug discovery, and as implants for damaged or injured tissues.
Located in the US, Digilab creates technologies used for clinical diagnostics and other life science areas. It offers the CellJet 3D printer that can print cells with 95% viability. These cells can be used to study cell-drug interaction, stem cell research, cancer biology and regenerative medicine
Located in the UK, Arrayjet uses non-contact inkjet printing technology to provide innovative solutions to the pharma, life science, and diagnostic industries. This CRO offers in-house printing services that provide excellent throughput, and precision delivering reproducible microarrays faster than its competitors.
Located in Finland, BRINTER prints tissue models layer-by-layer using a cell-laden hydrogel solution loaded onto their 3D printer. These constructs are later evaluated to ensure structural integrity. It also develops personalized medicine for treating cancer by 3D printing patient-specific tumors and then testing potential drugs on them.
Located in the US, TeVido Biodevices uses 3D printers for reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries designed for breast cancer survivors. It applies patient's’ melanocytes during 3D printing to lower the chance of rejection. TeVido Biodevices offers treatments such as nipple reconstruction and cell therapy for patients suffering from vitiligo.
Located in Germany, Cellbricks uses novel stereolithography techniques for 3D bioprinting. Stereolithography is a 3D printing method that utilizes photochemical processes for printing. It can create complex 3D structures using multiple bioinks simultaneously. Cellbricks specializes in creating customized organ models, 3D cell cultures, and scaffolds.
Located in Canada, Aspect Biosystems utilizes its proprietary 3D bioprinting platform to assist researchers in developing therapeutics and regenerative medicine. It has been working in collaboration with Frampton Lab at Dalhousie University to create synthetic tissue and is in a partnership with Johnson & Johnson to 3D print knee meniscus tissue.
Located in Japan, Cyfuse enables faster tissue generation by using a tissue fabrication process that doesn't require scaffolds such as polymers or collagen. It uses robotic systems for tissue fabrication that can assemble spheroids into complex 3D shapes.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
