About Us

We are a Deep Tech 3D Bioprinting Company focussed on the development of products and services for R&D and clinical applications. Our multi-disciplinary team that is working to change the paradigm of Indian and Global 3D Bioprinting research and development.

We developed our first 3D Bioprinter within the first 7 months, since our inception in May 2016. To create an impact in the domain of 3D Bioprinting, We, at NBIL, developed Trivima, India’s first customisable 3D Bioprinter. The printer has been developed to cater to the diverse requirements of researchers working in the domain of 3D Bioprinting in India.

With a long term vision to one day bridge the gap between organ demand and availability via 3D Bioengineered organs, our team has taken its first step in that direction. We are currently in the final stages of development of 3D Bioprinted Human Skin (Innoskin®). Although the initial application for the Bioprinted Skin would be in cosmetic, pharmaceutical and chemical testing applications, the long term goal of us at NBIL is to translate its 3D Bioprinted Skin into a clinical use case.

No single entity can achieve what we want to achieve – This is the belief within the company. We have developed a platform – “Jivan” (made up of the team, tech, processes and patents) – that allows researchers and companies alike to use in order to create a leapfrog jump in the state of research in 3D Bioprinting.

Trivima

India's First Customisable 3D Bioprinter

The initial months of NBIL was full of interactions with researchers working in multiple facets of 3D Bioprinting. Amongst those who were working with commercial 3D Bioprinters, we got to discuss about the engineering behind the commercial machines and about their real world applications.

Three main pain points stood out –

  1. The technology customisation options were low and unable to cater to the diverse requirements of 3D Bioprinting
  2. The cost of technology, in the Indian subcontinent, is high
  3. The post sale servicing options were minimal

These three reasons motivated us to build Trivima and to build out our own engineering technology. Trivima is a customisable 3D Bioprinter which provides any 3D Bioprinting researcher with the means to conduct his/her research without the constraints that are normally with other machines.

Innoskin®

3D Bioprinted Human Skin

Innoskin® HE

Innoskin® HE is 3D Bioprinted Human Epidermis and the first in the line of Innoskin® Products. Innoskin® will be available for testing in early 2020. Innoskin® HE can be used for a plethora of tests in cosmetic, pharmaceutical, chemical and agrochemical testing such as Skin Irritation, Anti-Oxidant Testing etc.
