Medical technology for organ preservation and tissue regeneration. The experience of a spin-off company

EBERS Medical Technology is a medical technology company created in 2009 as a spin-off initiative of a research group of the University of Zaragoza. It has two main lines of activity.

First, the company designs and sells scientific instrumentation for in vitro tissue regeneration. The company commercializes a wide range of cell culture system that allow growing in vitro tissues like blood vessels, bone, cartilage, skin, tendon or ligaments. These products have been mostly focused to the academic market, although the company is progressively gaining access to the clinical segment.

More recently, the company has developed a new medical technology for the extracorporeal organ preservation of human organs for transplantation. The technology, based on the concept of normothermic organ preservation, overcomes the limitations of conventional static cold storage and allows increasing the number and quality of available organs for transplantation. This new device will shortly undergo clinical trials.
