+ How do I download the software?
Download the software from our software page. Detailed instructions can be found in the user guide above.

+ Can I print below room temperature with my Allevi Bioprinter?
The Allevi 2 and earlier models do not have cooling capabilities, but printing in a cold room achieves the same result. However, the Allevi 1, 3, and 6 can print as low as 4°C!
