MAGDEBURG, Germany (ESA PR) — Tissue engineering is a fast-developing field reaching new heights thanks to space research. An experiment on the International Space Station is opening up possibilities to grow artificial blood vessels for surgery on humans.
Washington, DC, October 21, 2019 (NanoRacks PR) – Nanoracks Space Outpost – Europe (Nanoracks Italia) and Kayser Italia have announced today that the organizations have sign an agreement to broaden research opportunities on board the International Space Station which leverage the Bioreactor Express Service.
Kayser Italia, in partnership with the European Space Agency, will have access to the KUBIK Incubator, under the Bioreactor Express Service partnership agreement. KUBIK is a small controlled-temperature incubator or cooler with removable inserts designed for self-contained microgravity experiments. On board the Space Station since 2004, KUBIK has hosted numerous extensive microgravity biology and biochemistry experiments.
