Which input provides your business model/core technology towards a bio-based economy?
aquila biolabs focuses on the development of innovative laboratory devices. Together with leading scientists, aquila biolabs systematically identifies challenges in the area of bioprocessing, evaluates respective solutions and turns them into marketable products. Thereby, aquila biolabs contributes to the digitization of bioprocessing and hence the realization of a global bioeconomy.
Which market/clients do you address and which short-term/long-term goals do you have?
Nowadays, researchers in both academia and industry perform countless shake flask fermentations. To them aquila biolabs offers technologies for non-invasive biomass monitoring (CGQ) and automated feeding of liquids (LIS), adding a new level of bioprocess understanding and control. In the long-term, aquila biolabs’ vision is to act as an enabler for Industry 4.0 applications in bioprocessing.
What makes your approach unique compared to other stakeholders in the field?
As the first smart sensor for non-invasive online monitoring of biomass, the CGQ eliminates the need for manual biomass measurements in shaken as well as stirred systems. The LIS technology allows for automated feeding experiments and enables users to take their shake flask fermentations to the next level. Thus, aquila biolabs provides the tools for smart bioprocess development in shake flasks.
You can meet aquila biolabs GmbH at EFIB in Brussels on 30 September – 2 October 2019.
