INTEGRA Biosciences competition winner looks to transform cell culture

INTEGRA Biosciences is delighted to announce that Alt Biotech – an innovative French start-up making waves in the cell culture space – has been chosen as a winner of the 'INTEGRA supports start-ups’ competition.

Alt Biotech aims to revolutionise cell culture, using its innovative bioproduction method to generate growth factors, hormones and cytokines.

The company will receive 12 EVOLVE manual pipettes and $1000 worth of GRIPTIPS pipette tips to help develop its potentially game-changing technologies.

Jade Pellet, CSO and Co-founder of Alt Biotech, explained: “Our proprietary process relies on a new, more sustainable and scalable bioproduction method, combined with a microorganism that produces protein at a higher rate than E. coli alternatives. The EVOLVE manual pipettes we received from INTEGRA have allowed us to set aside dedicated equipment for each of our development workflows, eliminating any chance of cross contamination. The multichannel units have proved to be particularly valuable, helping us to minimize repetitive tasks, increase throughput, reduce well-to-well variation and expand our experimental batch sizes. In addition, the ECO rack GRIPTIPS are a much more sustainable solution than the temperamental alternatives we were previously using, simply snapping into place and putting an end to the constant inconvenience of poorly fitting tips.

“Winning the ‘INTEGRA supports start-ups’ competition has given our workflows a much-needed efficiency boost, allowing us to streamline the development processes that will ultimately provide the cell culture industry with affordable growth factors, cytokines and hormones.”
