Lifeonics Limited, the developer of smart, in‐situ analytical devices is pleased to announce the signing of a distribution agreement with K.K LIFEM, a company established to offer new and innovative tools to life science and industrial markets.
LIFEM will launch, market and support SMOD™, a unique, miniaturized device for non-‐intervention monitoring of cell culture fermentation, ideally suited for laboratories growing cells in flasks. SMOD acquires optical density and temperature measurements within the flask, according to user‐defined protocols and reports data via wireless communication to a lab-‐based PC. Data is also made available to mobile devices over local networks.
Clive Seymour, CEO of Lifeonics comments, “LIFEM, with its exceptionally experienced management is taking a fresh approach to supplying technical innovations to the large and sophisticated Japanese life science markets. We are particularly excited to be bringing all the advantages of out in‐situ sampling system to the cell culture laboratories of Japan”
Kihachiro Shiraishi of LIFEM comments, “LIFEM is a new company dedicated to bringing to the Japanese life science and industrial markets, modern and exciting innovations to improve efficiency and performance. The unique SMOD technology offers a smart and automated approach to what is currently a time consuming and often inaccurate method for the cell culture monitoring process. We look forward to introducing SMOD in Japan”
