SpinChem AB – the successful Umeå University spinoff company – announced last week that they have launched a collaboration with Purolite Life Sciences. Together they have released a range of novel products for biocatalysis in a totally new bioreaction concept that consist of cartridges into the innovative SpinChem® rotating bed reactor (RBR) systems. This new Product segment is being launched at the BNCM conference in Rostock, Germany on May 9th 2017.
On the 24th of march 2017, Umeå Biotech Incubator hosted a public Open House event to showcase the improved design of the refurbished facilities and rental spaces for startups. Top attractions included hands-on demos from both Brain Stimulation and SpinChem and a challenging quiz walk with an impressive high score list.
Despite the name, the Biotech Umeå Investment Day is not only about raising money and not only strict biotech anymore. This year’s event had a fair representation of innovations from ICT, digital health and chemical. And it seems that the investors are also widening their scope and contributing with more value than just capital to upcoming startups.
