A Robust Cell Manufacturing Bioprocess For Clinical Usage
Bioprocessing technologies used in scaling manufacturing production typically uses scale-up and scale-out approaches through microcarrier-based stirred tank bioreactors, wave bags or cell stackers and multi-layered flasks. However, during the research and development process of cell and gene therapies, there is a significant technical gap between basic research methods and these manufacturing process development, which causes problems such as increase in time and cost of the development process. Cell and Gene Therapy manufacturing is an emerging area in the biopharmaceutical industry that must overcome high barriers of resource, capacity, and cost constraints. Therefore, it is extremely important to consistently consider and design a culture process from R&D to commercialization as a closed system with a certain size of scale-up and automation.  This technology introduces a robust and economically viable culture process in a closed culture system which comprises of an automated cell culture medium change device that can be installed in commercial CO2 incubators, where the device is coupled with a patented microwell bag and V-shaped adhesion cell culture bag, capable of both spheroid culture (3D) and adhesion culture (2D). This novel technology has established a culture method that meets the requirements of clinical use by improving sterility, reproducibility, and operability, and produces a large number of uniform-sized clusters. The technology owner is seeking partnerships and collaborations with institutions, hospitals, biotechnology and biopharmaceutical firms.  This technology features three different components which can be applied separately or in combination with the automated cell culture system. 1. Spheroid culture bag designed in 2 measurements: A large scale 1,000cm2 (290 mm x 410 mm) surface area with a diameter of 350um and 650,000 wells at a volume of 200-800ml. A small scale 50cm2 (70 mm x 120 mm) surface area with a diameter of 500um and 18,000 wells at a volume of 10-20ml. Spheroid size can be controlled by changing the number of cells seeded. The microwells are treated with ultra-low adhesive substance to inhibit cell adhesion.  Spheroid culture bag has a dedicated holder that is portable, stackable and observable to prevent the movement of spheroids between microwells and inhibit formation of large aggregates. 2. Adhesion culture bag for adherent cells designed in 2 types of surfaces: A flat surface bag usable for microscopic observation. A V-shaped micro-patterned surface area enabling more than 3x of cells per unit area to achieve high density cell culture. A 1,000 cm2 bag would equate to an estimate of 3,000cm2 in area. The inner surface are treated to allow for cell adhesion. This adhesion bag can be applicable not only for cell therapy but also for small volume production of antibody, cytokine and proteins. 3. An automated closed culture medium change device adaptable to both spheroid and adhesion bags: It allows for microscopic observation under a closed system. It is patented in enabling precise pumping control of medium change rate by controlling liquid thickness.  For spheroid culture, it is possible to replace the entire medium while inhibiting the transfer of spheroids from one well to another.  Organoids for high-throughput drug dosing tiration testing.  High-throughput drug efficacy and toxicity screening.  Restructuring of organoids.  Cell therapies using adherent cells such as Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs).  Cell differentiation from ES or iPS cells  Mass production of cells for in vivo mice studies injection. The development of new manufacturing technologies and processes that can scale up the production of cell therapies while maintaining quality and reducing costs is a critical factor driving market growth. The global allogeneic cell therapy market was valued at USD 255.6 million in 2022 and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.40% from 2023 to 2030 (Research and Markets). A major driver of this growth is the increasing incidence of chronic diseases that can be addressed with allogenic cell therapies. The stem cell therapies segment, particularly allogenic stem cell therapies, dominated the market with the largest share in 2022 due to their widespread application in treating blood cancers, leukemia, lymphoma, and autoimmune disorders. The non-stem cell therapies segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 31.32% by 2030 (Grand View Research). The market size of this technology extends beyond the field of cell therapy manufacturing as it can be widely used for drug discovery screening and mass production of spheroids and organoids in other applicable areas including cultivated meat cultures. UVP of the culture bag:  This technology's patent stems in the design of a culture vessel with a high gas permeable film engineered with different layers of film at a specific thickness ratio, enabling efficient gaseous exchange of O2 and CO2 which is superior to conventional plastic vessels and reduces plastic wastage. The material of the film allows passing of culture gas but does not allow passing of microorganism which contaminates the cell. The size of the bags can be designed according to the purpose of culture. The culture bags has been proven safe and tested to use for clinical and manufacturing grade. Test conducted includes cytotoxicity, endotoxin, sterility, leachables and extractables. This novel microwell culture bag product has provided a superior alternative method for cell clustering.  UVP of the spheroid culture bag: The spheroid culture bag has been optimized in its height to ensure consistent production of homogenous uniformed cell clusters while affirming that diameter does not affect cluster uniformity. The spheroid culture bag exhibits user-friendly operability. Firstly, it allows easy removal of air bubbles in microwells. By simply setting the bag in the holder and incubating overnight, air bubbles can be removed by specific pressure (200-400kgf/m2) applied by the pressing plate holder during incubation. Secondly, formed spheroids can be easily recovered from the bag without pipetting by simply turning the bag upside down. Thirdly, almost all clusters (>99% of total number of cells) after culturing could be collected. Lastly, the microwell bag consistently produces uniform sized clusters.  UVP of the adhesion culture bag: Since the culture area is about three times larger than that of flat substrates, it is possible to perform adhesive culture at three times higher density. In addition, after treating cell detachment solution, cells can be detached without pipetting. The bag volume is smaller than that of rigid culture vessels, saving space during stocking, culturing and disposing.  Biopharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Cell Therapy Manufacturing, Bioprocessing, Culture bag, Automated Cell Culture Device, Gas Permeable Film, Uniform Cell Clusters, Spheriods and Organoids, Adherent Cells, Microwell Cell Culture Materials, Plastics & Elastomers, Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals & Therapeutics, Life Sciences, Industrial Biotech Methods & Processes
Water-Soluble Conjugated Oligoelectrolytes as Advanced Fluorogenic Dyes
The technology comprises fluorogenic dyes based on Water Soluble Conjugated Oligoelectrolytes (COEs), a class of organic molecules designed for improved detection of extracellular vesicles (EVs) and lipid nanoparticles. EVs are naturally occurring lipid nanoparticles released by cells and crucial in cell-to-cell communication. Once thought as a way for cells to clear trash, EVs are of increasing interest in medical research. However, traditional methods for EV detection can be plagued by background noise and difficulty in specifically targeting EVs. COEs offer a solution by functioning as biocompatible and water-soluble probes that specifically bind to EVs. This enables sensitive and accurate detection of EVs using techniques like flow cytometry. The dyes are not just cosmetic improvements—they are fundamentally new intelligent materials. Their novel design permits them to span the full depth of the lipid bilayer, a feat that no other dye has achieved. In comparison to classic dyes used in life science, this dye does not give false positives. They are intelligent molecules that only light up when the dye finds an exosome. This novel technology has immense utility in bioimaging applications, thanks to their tunable optical properties and affinity for lipid bilayers in the academic as well as industry settings where exosome detection is involved.  Conjugated oligoelectrolytes (COEs) are amphiphilic, fluorogenic molecules that spontaneously intercalate within lipid bilayer membranes. Being a full lipid bilayer spanning dyes, COEs are gaining attention as optical probes, particularly for EV detection by flow cytometry. Their unique structure consists of a hydrophobic core and two hydrophilic tails. This grants COE dyes excellent water solubility and prevents them from clumping together. Additionally, COEs mimic the structure of cell membranes, allowing them to interact with and label EVs selectively. This targeted approach minimizes interference from other particles and enhances the accuracy of EV detection. Ideal collaboration partners for this technology include research institutions and medical diagnostic manufacturers focused on developing advanced tools for EV analysis and IVD kits. The fluorogenic dye is highly relevant in the detection of exosomes. This technology holds promise for various applications in the life sciences sector. COEs can be instrumental in: Extracellular Vesicle Research: Studying the role of EVs in various diseases and developing EV-based diagnostic tools. Drug Discovery: Utilizing EVs as drug delivery vehicles and monitoring their effectiveness. Biomarker Development: Identifying specific EVs associated with particular diseases for earlier diagnosis. QC Validation: Ensuring and validating Quality Control in cosmetics as well as therapeutics based on exosome technology. The global exosomes market size was valued at USD 112.25 million in 2022 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 32.75% by 2030. Exosomes are also known as Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) and are encased within a single outer membrane. They are secreted by all cell types and have been found in saliva, urine, plasma, semen, breast milk, Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF), amniotic fluid, bronchial fluid, bile, lymph, serum, gastric acid, synovial fluid, and tears. These vesicles carry proteins and genetic information throughout the body and create paths for communication between cells. The key factors driving the industry include technological advancements in exosome isolation and analytical procedures, advanced applications of exosomes, growth in government and non-government initiatives for exosome research, and the increasing prevalence of cancer. COEs offer significant advantages over existing methods for EV detection: Enhanced Specificity: COEs specifically target EVs, minimizing background noise and improving detection accuracy. No False Positives: COEs have a unique structure that does not cause micelle formation and hence reduces the chances of false positives considerably. Water Solubility: Their water solubility allows for easier use and eliminates the need for organic solvents, which can be harmful. Biocompatibility: COEs are designed to be biocompatible, minimizing potential harm to cells or biological samples. Versatility: Not just for EVs also for bacteria typing and animal models. exosome, exosomes, lipids, flow cytometry, extracellular vesicles, nanoparticle, confocal microscopy, membrane, lipid bilayer, optical probe, NTA, liposomes Healthcare, Diagnostics, Chemicals, Organic
Capitalising On Spent Coffee Grounds (SCG)
Only 20% of actual coffee is extracted from beans to produce coffee in its beverage form, leaving the remaining 80% (six million tons annually) deemed as spent coffee grounds (SCG) to be disposed or used in landfills or as non-food product components to make fertilisers, furniture, deodorisers or skin care products. A technology was created to counteract SCG wastage and valorise it for human consumption. This particular invention comprises of methodologies to create two types of ingredients using leftover SCG - oil-grind and water-grind processed SCG. A simple, reproducible method of conching is employed to convert leftover SCG into smooth pastes, where specific conching parameters help refine the SCG to an acceptable particle size, eliminating grittiness in numerous valorised products similar to SCG. The product utilises common ingredients like oil and water to conche SCG with improved taste and textural properties. The shelf stability and nutritional composition (including caffeine) of the ingredients were also validated to ensure the food possessed good sensorial properties and are scale up ready. This technology increases SCG’s potential use as a versatile ingredient in different food applications. The technology provider is seeking off-takers from food manufacturers, food services industry, companies interested to valorise side streams to turn SCG into edible compounds. Technology Features: Uses reproducible method of conching into a functional ingredient with high insoluble dietary fibre (13g/100g) content. Fibre content is higher than instant coffee powder (<1g/100g) and coffee flavourings (0g/100g) and Lower caffeine levels (133mg/100g) compared to regular coffee (3600mg/100g) and is similar to decaffeinated beverages Sodium (<3mg/100g) and sugar free (<0.1g/100g)  Additive free (clean label) Specifications: SCG with particle size ranging between 4.82µm D(v,0.1) to 39.3 µm D[4,3] Moisture content 58.6% The technology was validated by incorporating SCG ingredients into a range of common food products such as beverages and ice cream (water-grind SCG), spreads and chocolate (oil-grind SCG) to help relevant food industries gain a deeper understanding of SCG valorisation, for a greater adoption among food manufacturers to create products using SCG. Can be developed into Ready-to-Drink (RTD) beverages, coffee ice cream, coffee spreads and confectionary (e.g. chocolates and cakes) Companies specialising in upcycling sidestreams and sustainability can explore this technology   Coffee consumption in Singapore increased by 4.8% in the last seven years with 105000, 60kg bags of coffee consumed in 2023 and the market is growing. There is a global push to reduce food side streams and Singapore's Zero Waste Masterplan on the treatment of such side streams by commercial and industrial generators, which aligns with the proposition of this technology. Similar technologies such as these may not be as cost effective. The technology uses basic ingredients such as water and oil and is easily reproducible. It does not involve high CAPEX investment or vigorous training processes that disrupts production process. Conching machines are commercially available, and the licensee can choose to purchase the equipment based on their production scale requirements. The conching process is easy to pick up. In addition, replacing coffee flavouring agents with SCG, customers can benefit from the natural and functional coffee flavour and caffeine SCG imparts into all the food applications.

Standards-Based Communications Platform for IoT
A new approach to a standards-based communications protocol for one-to-many Internet-of-Things devices. Being based on a standard, adopters are free from vendor lock-in. The protocol is particularly useful for IoT devices fitted with low-power displays (e.g., electronic labels). The technology is ideal for supermarkets (electronic price labels), pick-to-light systems, inventory management, and can easily be extended to any system where a one-to-many sensor network is critical.  Using a standards-based approach is also more environmentally friendly because users no longer need to dispose of their devices should they choose another communications service provider that uses the standard. An open-source software framework is also available that provides a cloud-based interface for devices using this communications protocol.   New approach using an existing 2.4GHz, wireless, standard protocol that is widely available. The technology extends the standard to an intermittent advertising framework for ultra-low power consumption on devices. The protocol is suitable for sending data (e.g., images and pricing) and commands (e.g., turn on an LED), as well as receiving data (e.g., temperature, sensor data, battery status), with up to 32,000 devices per access point. Devices can be connected to and updated within as little as 1.5 seconds. Open-source software framework immediately available for ease of implementation. Retail sector: Electronic shelf labels (ESLs) showing data and/or images, including e.g., price and product information, stock levels, and/or inventory management data. Standards-based communications ensures greater freedom-to-operate for retailers, with ESL displays ranging from 1.5” to >10” and multiple colour options (black-and-white to multiple colours). Inventory management/warehousing: Pick-to-light systems with displays showing inventory and updatable stock information. Hospitals/healthcare: Low-power information displays that can be used to show critical data (e.g., patient name, allergies, conditions), potentially replacing manually created slot-in cards. Sensor network: One-to-many standards-based platform for IoT sensor deployment (e.g., temperature sensors in cold-storage facility, especially if fitted with displays). A significant opportunity exists for this standards-based communication protocol to be used in supermarket electronic shelf labels (ESLs). While a cumulative total of 788 million ESLs have been installed worldwide, the potential market is upwards of tens of billions, and one of the major reasons for slower uptake of ESLs has been market fragmentation primarily driven by the proprietary protocols offered by ESL vendors. By shifting to a standards-based communications protocol, retailers will no longer be locked-in, and can benefit from the broader ecosystem offered by a standards-based platform. Regarding using the new protocol for IoT generally, many IoT customers have held back in adopting IoT technologies for fear of a particular technology becoming obsolete or are holding out on the promise of something better in the future. Consequently, many IoT customers partner with multiple vendors to diversify their supply of devices and ensure they are not trapped into a single vendor. While there are standards readily available for IoT already, this new implementation significantly broadens the scope by allowing for display integration as well as a higher-speed and lower-energy framework for IoT. For electronic shelf labels, the present ‘state-of-the-art’ is entirely proprietary. This technology’s unique value proposition stems from the implementation of a standards-based solution for ESLs that: increases Interoperability: One of the major benefits of adopting a standards-based platform is that products and solutions from one vendor can work with those from another. Improves flexibility and reduces vendor lock-in: Retailers who adopt a standards-based solution can switch to a different vendor if they become dissatisfied with their current solution provider. Benefits from economies of scale: Standards-based enables greater product choice, increased competition, a larger selection of products, a reduced burden of entry, faster time to market, and collaboration from a wide number of players across the value chain. For IoT devices, this technology further improves on ‘state-of-the-art’ protocols by increasing IoT device flexibility, improving device communications speed all the while reducing power consumption and extending battery life.
