Aether 1 – 3D Bioprinter

Across the ages from the ancient to the modern world, human potential has been defined by our tools.
Give an innovative mind a powerful new tool, and there is no limit to what can be accomplished.
That’s why Aether has developed Aether 1, the most versatile tool ever created.
Aether 1 will help university, government, and private researchers achieve their most ambitious and world-changing goals, for a price that any lab can afford.
Aether 1 is a revolutionary new 3D bioprinter that allows you to print with up to 24 materials and mix multiple fabrication methods into one simple print.
The easy-to-use modular 3D bioprinter includes a 10 extruder fabrication system, featuring 8 syringes and 2 hot-ends.
Aether 1 includes four never-before-seen automation features, Machine Vision Automatic Air-pressure Calibration, Machine Vision Automatic X/Y Offset Calibration, Dual Automatic Multi-Function Nozzle-Cleaning Stations, and Automatic Mechanical Stage-Leveling.
Aether 1 along with its modular add-on tools can print with viscous pastes, gels, ceramics, filament, oils, liquids, resins and more.
Aether’s wide range of tools, fabrication methods, and printable materials empower researchers to create structures at tissue-scale complexity.
Aether 1 is the world’s most advanced 3D bioprinter. This groundbreaking system will open up entirely new possibilities for bioprinting research.
