Profile Description

Nanoscribe is a supplier of high-precision microfabrication systems based on Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP). The German company is a spin-off of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) that was founded in 2008 and has been part of the BICO Group (formerly CELLINK Group) since June 2021. The award-winning company develops and manufactures advanced high-resolution 3D printers and maskless lithography systems as well as specially developed printing materials. Providing complete solutions is key to the customers success and the crucial driver for applications in a wide range of scientific research and industries such as life sciences, microoptics, photonics, material engineering, microfluidics, microrobotics, micromechanics and MEMS. More than 3,000 users and operators at top universities and market-leading high-tech companies developing future technologies worldwide benefit from Nanoscribe’s groundbreaking technology and application-specific solutions for 3D Microfabrication, which are highlighted in more than 1,200 peer-reviewed journal publications.

  • High-precision additive manufacturing solutions for industry and science.
  • In-house developed 3D printers, software, materials and processes for microfabrication.
  • Quantum X: World´s first Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography (2GL) system for industrial microfabrication.
  • Photonic Professional GT2: World´s highest resolution 3D printer for rapid and powerful nano, micro and mesoscale microfabrication.
  • Dedicated customer support and worldwide service



Quantum X is the world´s first Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography (2GL) system for the fabrication of free-form microoptics, microlens arrays, and multi-level diffractive optical elements. This maskless lithography system offers interfaces for industrial process control and powerful components for fast scanning and very precise synchronization.

Photonic Professional GT2 is the world´s highest resolution 3D printer for rapid and powerful nano, micro and mesoscale microfabrication. The system uses Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) to produce filigree structures of nearly any 3D shape: crystal lattices, porous scaffolds, naturally inspired patterns, smooth contours, sharp edges, undercuts, and bridges are all possible. Flexibility in design combined with straightforward operation and a wide range of materials and substrates make the Photonic Professional GT2 an ideal instrument for science and prototyping in multi-user facilities and research laboratories.
