Next up was Jack Reid, co-founder and CEO at Unicorn Biotechnologies, which is “developing the next generation of biomanufacturing equipment to become the go-to manufacturing partner for the cellular agriculture industry.”
He added: “Existing biomanufacturing systems are not designed specifically for cellular agriculture processes. They are primarily developed to produce simple cells like bacteria, not complex animal cells, and these repurposed technologies are not able to grow all of the animal cell types we want to use in this industry; it's like trying to put a square peg into a round hole.
“At Unicorn, we’re developing a fit for purpose, fully automated, biomanufacturing system to affordably and rapidly scale cellular agriculture products from the lab to the factory floor. Our patent pending technology combines hardware, software, and analytics to scale out and fully automate proven processes used in the lab to produce animal cells.”
