Traditional consumables, such as well plates and Petri dishes, have been in an important role when solving many fundamental issues in cell biology research. However, they will not be anymore sufficient in more demanding applications requiring mobility, more precise control of the environment conditions and more precise control of the molecule compositions provided to cells.
The main objective in the project SoLab is to create a basis for starting new business on advanced cell laboratory products in Tampere. The project will focus on mobile cell culture environments and molecule permeation systems.
SoLab is one of the three projects funded by the City of Tampere to boost industry and business in Tampere. http://www.tut.fi/en/about-tut/news-and-events/tampere3-innovation-prize-winners-chosen-x171949c2
