uFraction8 provides scalable bioprocessing technology enabling biomass filtration, separation and dewatering, used with wide range of microbes like micro algae, yeast and bacteria, sorting biomass from culture medium with no harm and no flocculants unlike centrifuges, filters and membranes.
What We Do
We use a range of our microfluidics based devices to perform industrial scale tasks such as:
Liquid - Particle Processing
Stem cells, blood/plasma separation
Environmental Sample Preparation
Selective concentration of pathogens for detection
Who We Are
uFraction8 is a young biotech startup based in Scotland and London.
At uFraction8, we are focused on sustainable solutions for bioreactor downstream processing.
We aim to propagate our innovative solution, replacing filters, membranes, flocculants, centrifuges and other technologies.
We target a wide range of microbes like micro algae, yeast and bacteria, sorting biomass from culture medium with no harmful high shear processes
Our downstream processing, cell separation technology can help your business achieve sustainability
AND generate higher margins on your product
We can scale our technology far beyond the limits of flow centrifuges allowing you to decide optimal throughput parameters for your facility.
Process savings of up to 75% through energy effciency, process simplification and superior output.
Energy savings directly translate to increased margins on your products.
Industrial problems in downstream processing and our SOLUTION
Current downstream processing solutions in bio-production space are costly and inefficient. 1. Filters and membranes clog easily, need frequent cleaning and replacement 2. Chemical flocculants are not edible therefore cannot be used for consumables production 3. Centrifuges are energy inefficient and suffer limitations on ability to scale up 4. Freeze drying costs are high because of high water content in biomass
uFraction8 instead of filters, membranes, flocculants and centrifuges! uFraction8 can be used for cell separation, biomass harvesting and dewatering. It does not need pre-concentration steps and can replace filters, membranes, flocculants and centrifuges all at once, leading to production of more dry biomass for freeze drying, lowering the costs.
uFraction8 builds products around a disruptive new liquid particle processing technology. Following our world leading research, establishing new levels of throughput for massively multiplexed microfluidic devices, our technology will be the key to unlock a prosperous and sustainable future.
Our team are always ready to answer your questions. You can call us at the weekends and at night. Also you can visit our office for personal consultation.
Our company works according to the principle of individual approach to every client. This method lets us to get success in problems of all levels.
Our technology offers superior performance and cost savings against the big three liquid processing technologies of filtration, flow centrifugation and flocculation. High volume applications benefit by our unique ability to granularly match targeted volumetric throughputs and our ability to scale this beyond the physical limitations of competing technologies.
