Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Gri3D (The industrialization and market entry of a novel bioengineered hydrogel grid to standardize stem cell cultures for precision medicine.)
Reporting period: 2018-03-01 to 2018-08-31
The second objective of this feasibility study was the production of 1’000 Gri3D units. Limited by the availability of sufficient custom multiwell base plates from our external manufacturers, we could only reach the production of ca. 100 Gri3D units.
These 100 units were tested and used for drug screening campaigns internally and externally. Ten new clients were acquired during the course of this feasibility study, including pharmaceutical industry groups who currently evaluate the technology for large-scale screening campaigns requiring 1’000 units annually.
Gri3D was presented at various industry-related conferences and fairs including Biointerfaces International 2018 in Zurich, EMSO 2018 in Cambridge, UK and the 2018 Basel Life MipTec Exhibition. The outcome of these conferences was a network of potential new clients, especially non-academic clients, who will be our focus for the coming 12 months to make SUN bioscience a sustainable business.
