Holliston, MA, United States, 2010/09/29 - The presentation, “CellJet: A Novel Technology for Bio-Printing,” will cover the recent successes that Digilab has had with their live cell printer, in printing various cell types and hydrogel architectures - DigilabGlobal.com.
Digilab, Inc., a global provider of innovative solutions for life-science research, announced today that Brian Syverud, mechanical engineer, and Chirantan Kanani, application scientist, will be presenting at the 2010 International Conference on Biofabrication on Wednesday, October 6th at 3:20PM at the Sheraton University City Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Syverud and Kanani have been invited to present their recent research using Digilab’s CellJet live-cell printer.
The presentation, “CellJet: A Novel Technology for Bio-Printing,” will cover the recent successes that Digilab has had with their live cell printer, in printing various cell types and hydrogel architectures. The validation studies have significant implications of establishing the CellJet as a reliable tool for Biofabrication. These developments bring the CellJet within reach of constructing three dimensional structures using cells and other biological materials, with the eventual aim of regenerating human tissues.
Digilab (digilabglobal.com) has a rich history of technology and applications market leadership in spectrometry and photonics spanning over the past 40 years.
In September of 2004, Digilab sold its product assets to Varian Inc., Digilab, Inc invested the proceeds of this transaction in a business model focused principally on life science research tools and downstream point of need clinical, safety and security applications.
In June of 2006, Digilab acquired SpectraCode, Inc. in West Lafayette, Indiana. This acquisition provides Digilab core competence and products in high growth applications which require the versatility and ease of use of Raman Molecular Spectroscopy
