Our products and services enable our customers to achieve their research goals

I lead the Microbiology & Infection Research Group at Cardiff Metropolitan University where we have been using Copner Biotech’s bio-printer to develop and modify our in vitro chronic wound infection model. The support and guidance we received following installation of the bio-printer has been both excellent and invaluable, and it’s great that were still are able to contact Copner Biotech to discuss our bio-printing project and needs as the work progresses. The bio-printer doesn’t need a lot of bench-space, and is easy to set up and use; I’m looking forward to seeing where this technology continues to take the groups research.

The scaffolds are incredibly easy to use. The preparation protocol is simple to follow and quick to do so. My stem sells attached proliferated and migrated onto the scaffolds with ease, with no adaption needed. The scaffolds are robust and easy to handle.

this novel 3D cell culture platform offers enormous potential for research into multiple cell types, including: cancer cells, cardiomyocytes, fibroblasts and liver cells. Experts believe that the applications for this product are genuinely limitless, and the reality is that researchers are routinely discovering new opportunities provided by these advanced scaffold designs.
