RUSSIAN AND CYPRUS SCIENTISTS are on the scent of a bioprinting discovery
The Cyprus State University and IQJET ARTISIA Company are going to open the most advanced bioprinting laboratory next year.
The project is carrying out in collaboration with NextGene Biosystem (Blagoveshchensk, Russia), Amur State Medical Academy (Amur region, Russia) and IQDEMY SA Holding (IQJET ARTISIA Company is a part of the Holding, Switzerland). NextGene Biosystem and Amur State Medical Academy are Russian science leading organizations of cell engineering and health technology scientific studies.
The research activity of this bioprinting laboratory is aimed at the development of diseases treatment, based on application of structural cell changes.
Today, the major joint project of IQ ARTISIA and NextGeneBiosystem is development of a innovative bioprinter to create a kind of artificial skin for patients with skin burns and scalds as well as trophic ulcer.
Bioprinting laboratory is supposed to be a result of long-term collaboration of IQDEMY SA and NextGene. The joint research in bioprinting area started in chemical laboratory IQDEMY CHEMISTRY in Novosibirsk, Russia.The laboratory is located in Novosibirsk Akademgorodok, that is a concentration space of companies, acting in IT, pharmaceuticals, metallurgy and fossil fuels and due to this fact this area is sometimes called Silicon Forest. IQDEMY CHEMISTRY makes researches in the field of material rheological properties, bio-ink researches, bioprinter engineering, that meets both biotechnology and digital printing requirements.
Bioprinting and 3D printing are very perspective lines of research nowadays because the solution for bio-cellular printing will definitely forward breakthrough in medical science and implantology.
This is the reason why bioprinting industry becomes so popular among scientists and potential investors and is raised with ever increasing frequency as a topic discussed by scientific communities. One of the significant events in this field, The Biointerfaces International Conference, took place in Switzerland last August. The conference was organized by University of Zurich. At the conference, Doctor George Güttinger specified the need for development of Bioprinting laboratory in Europe, that would satisfy the world needs in such technology.
This idea inspired ARTISIA IQJet company and initiates the meeting of Vladislav Mirchev (IQDEMY SA President), Olga Kondratieva (IQDEMY SA Development Director) and The Head of University of Cyprus. Vladislav Mirchev and Olga Kondratieva act as ARTISIA IQJet Company representatives. The meeting was organized by KPMG Company. KPMG is a professional service company, being one of the Big Four auditors, along with Deloitte, EY and PwC, for another hand KPMG is official ARTISIA IQJet auditor. On the part of KPMG Mr. Angelos M Gregoriades (KPMG Cyprus Chairman) and Mr. Tassos Yiasemides (KPMG Cyprus Board Member) attended the event.
In that meeting companies’ representatives discussed possibilities of joint investment in bioprinting laboratory project. In the course of the talks Artisia IQJet and University of Cyprus decided to start the common scientific project of bioprinting industry researching and development.
Project initiators are sure, that research base of NextGene Biosystem, Amur State Medical Academy and IQDEMY Chemistry in collaboration with theoretical base of European Scientists will help to reach scientific breakthroughs in bioprinting sphere.
