(VancouverIsAwesome) British Columbia’s biotech firm Aspect Biosystems has received $1 million from BC’s Industry Innovation program to ramp up Aspect’s efforts to commercialize its 3D-printed human tissue technology. The University of B.C. spinoff specializes in developing complex tissues better suited for drug testing than cells in a Petri dish.
Aspect has created a 3D bioprinting platform known as Lab-on-a-Printer, which enables the rapid creation of functional living tissues.
“With this additional financing, we are further increasing our capacity to meet key commercial demands and continuing our rapid growth as we work towards enabling the creation of human tissues on demand,” Aspect president and CEO Tamer Mohamed said in a statement.
