Groundbreaking Technology in Drug Discovery: Shorten Wet-Bench Experimental Time and Reduce Animal Use in Research

Share Article

One Million Solutions in Health™ is pleased to share this webinar, outlining how this innovative technology will lead to a decrease in the need for animal models; and, most importantly, GelCel will provide for the culture of primary cells acquired from any tissue of the body, as well as for stem cells.

Shorten Wet-Bench Experimental Time

GelCel can replace cell culture flasks, without any change to current protocols for the cell culture, and will provide results that are comparable to physiological conditions.

One Million Solutions in Health is pleased to share this webinar, “Groundbreaking Technology in Drug Discovery: Shorten Wet-Bench Experimental Time and Reduce Animal Use in Research” by Dr. Kaori Ihida-Stansbury, Research Assistant Professor, University of Pennsylvania.

GelCel is a cell culture system which can mimic the micro-scale physiological conditions of the body. Scientists work with model systems that are meant to be small-scale versions of the real-life conditions in the body. However, many scientists work on micro-level models with cells using plastic-based culture containers which are far from the natural environment of the body.

GelCel can replace cell culture flasks, without any change to current protocols for the cell culture, and will provide results that are comparable to physiological conditions.

This innovative technology will also lead to a decrease in the need for animal models; it saves time versus hydrogel-based cell culture because of the significant increase (at least 4 times higher) in the surface area for cell harvest; and, most importantly, it will provide for the culture of primary cells acquired from any tissue of the body, as well as for stem cells.

ABOUT ONE MILLION SOLUTIONS IN HEALTH:

As a not-for-profit, the goal of One Million Solutions in Health™ is to shape health care by sharing solutions and, importantly, to accelerate the discovery, development and delivery ... of innovative cures, treatments and preventative measures for patients around the world. By facilitating efforts to ensure organizations can Connect, Learn + Share, Innovate and Collaborate, our vision is to improve health care delivery, accelerate life sciences research and share patient and consumer-focused ideas and solutions.

By engaging scientists, entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, industry experts, health care professionals, and patients across various disciplines, and from around the world, we can utilize the power of the internet to disrupt things in a positive and transformative way to accelerate the movement of new solutions and scientific discoveries from the scientist to the patient.

The Technology Evaluation Consortium (TEC) brings together life sciences and/or health care companies and technology providers, and other relevant partners (e.g., government and Universities) to evaluate and validate technologies or services in a collaborative environment. The model empowers technology providers and industry end users to collectively assess a number of technologies in a cost-effective manner, producing a depth and breadth of results that no company can achieve alone.

We are on our way towards accelerating high-potential innovations, catalyzing investment and increasing awareness of, and support for, important ideas to improve health and save lives. We are thrilled to have you be a part of this transformative journey!
