Pressure BioSciences Inc., ("PBI") (OTCQB: PBIO) was one of the presenting companies at the recent FSXinterlinked Investment Conference held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village, California.
PBI is focused on the development, marketing, and sale of proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables based on Pressure Cycling Technology (“PCT”).
PCT is a patented, enabling technology platform with multiple applications in the estimated $6 billion life sciences sample preparation market. PCT uses cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to control bio-molecular interactions for the subsequent, high-quality analysis of samples in scientific studies.
As a presenting company at the event, Chairman of the PBI Board Mr. Jeffrey N. Peterson was interviewed by FSXinterlinked host Michael Fugler.
"Michael is able to ask just the right questions to get the simplest, most informative descriptions of what our presenting companies do and who these entrepreneurs are,” stated Mr. Delray Wannemacher, FSXinterlinked President.
During the interview, Mr. Peterson said, “Pressure BioSciences is a company focused on a very important step that is a part of all life science studies worldwide: sample preparation. In life science research and development, the better the quality of the preparation of the sample being analyzed, the greater the quality of the result (per the old adage, “garbage in, garbage out”). Scientists may be looking at tumor biopsy samples of patients who responded to treatment and those who did not, trying to detect the reasons why the response to therapy was so different. Or they might be breaking open a pathogen (e.g., a virus or a bacterium) trying to find its “Achilles Heel”. The answer to these and many other investigations may be the discovery of a “bio-marker” that can lead to the detection, prevention, control, or cure of a disease and disorder. To find such bio-markers is an incredibly difficult course of events, since cells, pathogens, etc, are very complex samples. The challenge is often how you open the cell of interest that may contain thousands of different proteins, lipids, DNA, and other biomolecules, and present the one and only biomolecule you need to find the difference.”
The key today in the important step of preparing a sample to liberate biomolecules to study differences is that research scientists currently use physical abuse, temperature abuse, or chemical abuse as methods to tear up the sample to liberate the biomolecule of interest. Unfortunately, in many cases, the biomolecule that is being sought after is modified or destroyed in the process.
Mr. Peterson refers to pressure as the gentle giant. “PCT has the unique and immense ability to disentangle and liberate things and to subsequently present the bio-molecules we need to see without destroying them,”
