The year 2019 was crucial for the development of the CryoHolder. Half of the year we had the privilege of being a part of the Health Venture Lab accelerator Reactor 2019 in Budapest, Hungary, run by EIT Health and General Electrics Healthcare Health Venture Lab is operational since 2018, however COVID-19 has been the cause of cancelling or moving most of events to virtual platforms and so the 2020 edition of the Health Venture Lab Reactor has unfortunately been postponed to September. Last year we were lucky enough to attend it, however, and we decided to share some experience on the
It is impossible to exist without at least mentioning the SARS-CoV-2 that has been dominating the world these past few months. The virus that causes COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome - CoronaVirus-2), turned our life upside down in March and April as it has been spreading across the world like wildfire. Going from the “New Chinese Virus” phase (something that was happening far away from Europe, in China) to engulfing the whole world and keeping us sleepless at night was such fast development, that health authorities and governments are struggling to keep up. To try and help the factual news world,
Frozen cryovial transfer or cryogenic tubes can be quite a hassle. That is why good tools are absolutely essential for a safe and efficient workflow. And the CryoHolder is just that, a great tool. What is the CryoHolder? If you still don’t know what the CryoHolder is, you’re in luck! You can read about it here. 1. Simplicity The CryoHolder is simple. It’s shaped just like a pencil. You only use one hand to use it and there is no extra training required in order to use it. You just pick it up, plug it in the vial cap (or tube), lift and
The F0 Baby Bioreactor can be used in different combinations of modules, all controlled with the ROSITA Bioprocessing Software. On your way to becoming the world’s foremost producer of antibiotics, you will need to gather the best equipment. You will also have to perfect your culture and culturing process, which can be a long journey, full of errors and you cannot afford them with big and expensive equipment! That is why you need something smaller. Something simpler. Something for every counter. You need the best laboratory scale bioreactor. And the F0-BABY bioreactor is just that - convenient and yet professional.
Cryopreservation basics and tips for using it. Since the dawn of time, we humans have been searching for a way to prolong our lifespan. With the advancements in medicine, we manage to live up to about a hundred years. But there is also a way to extend that time by preserving our bodies in freezing temperatures. Unfortunately, that type of cryopreservation is not what this post is about. Maybe some other time. The cryopreservation we are talking about is the preservation of different samples, may they be cells or whole tissue, plants or animals. The gist is freezing and storing samples
A quick introduction to Bioprocessing. So you want to know what is all the fuss about Bioprocessing: 1. Some substances and products are quite hard or impossible to produce chemically. 2. Many people don’t like that their food, drugs and other things are made chemically, Well luckily, there is a way to kill two birds with one stone. The answer lies in the field of bioprocessing. A bioprocess is a specific process, in which you use whole cells or their organelles to produce some desired product. Since many substances we use for medicine or food were originally found produced by other organisms in
