invested in development
The FELIX BIOprinter raises the bar in terms of flexibility and adaptability, and is ideally suited for an array of research, scientific, and medical applications. The unique features of the system allow the BIOprinter to print with two different material types within the same print, improve material dosage and material flow, and print a wide range of viscosities and bio-inks.
FELIXprinters has nearly 10-years experience developing robust, cost-effective, accurate, and ground-breaking 3D printing solutions. All this experience has been used to develop the modular and easy to use BIOprinter.

Upgradable Design, did you know that all FELIXprinters are upgradable?
We have designed our machines to be future-proof. You can upgrade quickly and easily when new advancements and technologies are launched. Guarantee a lifetime of use from your FELIX BIOprinter, and eliminate the need to invest in an entirely new printer to stay up to date to newest developments.
The UV curing module allows you to print with UV curable viscous materials. The high-powered UV light module enables quick curing of a layer to harden it to the desired consistency.
Open System, the FELIX BIOprinter consists of a flexible & adaptable ecosystem to ensure it can meet the needs of a wide range of research applications without generating unnecessary costs. The FELIX BIOprinter has been designed to use any standard 5 ml syringe, meaning it is not restricted to expensive branded products that drive up operating costs. Similarly, standardised petri-dishes and culture plates are easily accommodated ensuring no limitations on type of instruments and materials to be used.
Your support in bioprinting
BIO INX® is a spin-off company of Ghent University focusing on the commercialisation of materials and bio-inks for 3D bioprinting or biofabrication by utilizing decades of academic experience in the field of polymers and biomaterials.
By offering a unique material portfolio with a diverse range of material properties, the applications become nearly limitless: the bio-inks can be applied for various tissue types with applications in regenerative medicine and drug and cosmetics screening. Additionally, by offering a bio-ink portfolio suitable for multiple printing technologies, attainable resolutions range from hundreds of micrometers to hundreds of nanometers.
STABLE INX F100© and SUPPORT INX© F100 is developed specifically for use with the FELIX BIO printer and is sold exclusively through FELIXprinters.
Empower the flow of your research
Claro delivers advanced gelatins for tissue engineering.
ClaroTM originated in 2018 following an innovative idea developed between PB Leiner (part of Tessenderlo Group) – a leading global manufacturer of high-quality gelatins and collagen peptides – and Tessenderlo Group’s Innovation Center.
PB Leiner’s expertise in gelatins ignited the breakthrough in materials for bioprinting applications: gelatin with outstanding printability in extrusion-based bioprinting. Claro was incubated at the Tessenderlo Innovation Center and supported by a cross-functional team of scientists with backgrounds in organic chemistry, biochemistry, bioengineering, and chemical engineering, as well as over 30 years of activity in the pharma segment (developing and producing active pharmaceutical ingredients).
Claro™ and FELIX BIOprinters ensure successful bioprinting with GelMA
FELIXprinters has joined forces with Claro to supply extrusion-based printable gels. Claro develops gelatin featuring tailored behavior for extrusion-based bioprinting. It can also be offered in a functionalized form. This powerful combination of material and printing technology will ensure bioprinting without interruptions and no nozzle blockage.
For research use only. Not for human use.
BG800 is a gelatin-based bio-ink modified with methacryloyl groups (GelMA) exhibiting rheological properties tailored for extrusion-based bioprinting. BG800 overcomes clogging and poor shape-fidelity without affecting the intrinsic biocompatibility of gelatin and the gel strength of the matrix. BG800 is crosslinkable under UV or visible light, depending on the photo-initiator used in the formulation.
BG800 is produced under high-quality standards of purification, ensuring ultra-low levels of impurities such as methacrylic acid and guaranteeing batch-to-batch consistency.
To facilitate ease of use, the BIOprinter uses industry standard and market-leading slicing software. This allows users the ability to take advantage of the versatility of the BIOprinter, and to have total freedom to explore the possibilities of specific applications.

Touchscreen with user friendly interface and embedded print server, allows remote print file monitoring, multi-user environment and print-file management.
All information at your fingertips, duration of print, Estimated time of completion, calibration, tutorials
Unique nozzle probing system, enables automated bed leveling and calibration of the nozzles. This gives a perfect first layer, saving you valuable research time.
Camera module let’s you monitor your prints remotely from your smartphone or PC.
Ultimate research freedom
The novel dual head dispensing unit allows you to use almost any viscous material accurately. You have ultimate design freedom with the flexible dispensing unit.
Dispensing on the FELIX BIOprinter is performed with a linear motor. This allows accurate dosing and retraction capabilities. These are two crucial criteria for reliable and precise end results.
The BIOprinter dispenses a wide range of viscous materials up to a viscosity of 64 000 Centipoise. You have the ability to extrude materials and bio-inks that range in consistency from liquids to pastes.
Open Source System
The printer is designed to use standardized 5ml Luer lock syringes. Benefits of this are:
- This volume is large enough to facilitate research needs
- Low cost
- Easy to obtain
