How UNI-GEL works?

UNI-GEL is a platform solution for drug discovery and regenerative medicine through the ability to

  • mimic the human body to support cell culture for drug discovery.
  • flex to the required tunability to mimic different parts of the body
  • be used within printable biocompatible bio-inks for regenerative medicine.

Target markets

  • Short-comings in predictive modelling are impeding effective drug discovery and regenerative medicine techniques
  • Regenerative medicine requires biomaterials, scaffolds and cells generated from robust and reliable materials
  • 3D-Bioprinting offers potential to implant tissue therapeutics rather than whole organs in a consistent and safe manner
  • Cell Based Assay Mkt $22bn in 2025
  • Regenerative Market $39m in 2023

B2B Proposition:

1.HYDROGELS that are a superior alternative to Matrigel

2.BIO-INKS which will be utilized in large scale regenerative medicine.

Peptide hydrogels combine all the key attributes that are essential for robust and highly reproducible cell-derived data.

Ease of use and regenerative adaptability make biogelx a future market leader.
