    Advantages

    Our innovative technology of microbioreactors - c.bird is the first microbioreactor that combines high-throughput culture screening, monitoring and optimization from early stage of cell culture. It enables users to have better predictability of cell clones from day 1 and save weeks in the very cost intensive early-stage cell line development process. Besides, cell culture based research (e.g. synthetic biology, stem cell research and cell therapy) can potentially also benefit from c.bird technology.
