UFraction8

Low Energy, Scalable, Bioprocessing Technology

Pitch

The bioeconomy revolution should be upon us already. Where is it and why hasn’t it had the impact promised for almost 20 years? The answer lies in harvesting. Current technologies for harvesting cells from large volumes of culture are inefficient and expensive. uFraction8 has developed a technology exploiting a new mechanism for harvesting cells at high concentration and low energy. Using the power of microfluidics, multiplexed in modular form, uFraction8 will reduce harvesting costs down to a quarter of the costs of present solutions. uFraction8 technology has many unique benefits, including rapid scalability, simplified maintenance and operation and gentleness on the products processed and increased product recovery/yield.
