Stem from joint NUS/Mechanobiology Institute and CNRS’s patented device, Pickcell Lab aims to develop a range of versatile, low cost and easy to use micro-consumables for the 3D cell culture.
Pickcell Lab Pte Ltd was incorporated in Singapore in July 2016 and is the result of the collaboration between the French Biotech Company Builder Quattrocento and the joint NUS-Mechanobiology Institute and CNRS lab’s research team.
The core technology consists in a bio compatible membrane with through-holes that can be placed on any substrate to create artificial micro-niches for 3D cell culture:
• Fully customizable for cell culture
• Compatible for super high resolution microscopy
Our products, currently in their prototype phase, consist in a set of three systems based on that core technology offering various degrees of control over cell culture.
Elice (Easy Life Sciences) was created in October 2009. It specializes in developing and marketing innovative equipment (devices, consumables, reagents, etc.) for the Life Sciences community (academic researchers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, bio-tech companies, analysis laboratories).
Based on a patented technology, ELICE’s ambition is to market easy-to-use devices designed for daily use and intended for the research equipment market.
Since its creation in December 2010, Alvéole has been developing easy-to-use microfluidic devices adapted to standard cell culture formats (Petri dishes, microplates).
The targeted fields of application are live cell assays, cell and tissue engineering (cell strains) for research, toxicology and drug development.
Created in 2011, Thamis manufactures devices
for quality control of particles beams used
Hadrontherapy is a cancer treatment method that uses particle beams (protons, carbon ions) to destroy
radio-resistant and inoperable cancer cells.
Created in November 2012, Azalée develops medical devices based on a patented technology using ultrasound to measure cortical bone and assess its structural and mechanical parameters.
A first application is being developed for the assessment of the fragility of cortical bone in the field of osteoporosis.
