CryoBiomed is an spin-off company from the CryoBiotech group at the University of Sevilla (Spain), placed into the Engineers School at the Cartuja Campus, an ideal environment to develop research projects boosting multidisciplinary interactions with a wide range of technological companies and academic groups. Several several companies from the Aero-space, IT and Biomedical sectors have chosen this campus to place their headquarters. The city holding the warmest climate in Europe hosts the development of benchmark ultra-low temperatures-based technologies.
Cryopreservation is an state-of-the-art technology that has proven to be useful for long term storage of biological samples preserving their biological activity. Nowadays, cryopreservation of blood cells, ovules, spermatozoids and embryos is usually used with medical purposes, whereas its application for complex tissues and organs is still to be investigated and is the main goal of CryoBiomed. Several approaches are being assessed to improve the treatment of the organ during the process. Computerized Tomography enables the real time monitoring of the cryo-protectant perfusion process and electromagnetic rewarming guarantees a quick thawing to reactivate the organ.
To achieve these aims, CryoBiomed is enhancing the R&D activity in a wide range of methodologies such as electromagnetic rewarming, for deep frozen specimens, or the use of Computerized Axial Tomography to monitor the perfusion of organs with cryoprotectants before the application of the ultra-low temperature.
