Exciting news! Lab on a Bead AB has been awarded a grant of 1.7 MSEK for a one year project together with our partner Dr. Véronique Chotteau, Dep. of Industrial Biotechnology, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in Stockholm. Our project, Novel Technology for Purification of Biopharmaceuticals, aim to show proof-of-concept for Lab on a Bead’s system in pilot scale; a crucial step for being able to move into bioprocess scale.
Out of 49 application, of “…very high quality…”, and peer-reviewed by an international panel, ours was one of 11 projects that were awarded grants from Vinnova in their research program Next-generation Biologics; a program that focus on development and production of biopharmaceuticals. Vinnova is a Swedish government body working to “ensure a well-functioning innovation system in Sweden and to make Sweden attractive for businesses”.
We are very excited about the obtained grant and the possibility it gives us to move towards the industrial bioprocess market
