Mini-CellFate™, a product developed in collaboration with BioCellTis/RegenTis (www.biocelltis.com). CellFate™ is a 3D platform for cell culture and tissue studies.
Bacterial cellulose hydrogels of macroscopic dimensions are being extensively studied at InteLAB. We have succesfully produced bodies of up to 200 mL, with several composites and internal structures. The pictures at the left show untreated "cocoons", the basic starting point of our novel products.
We are committed to do our best for the development of science and engineering, assuming a holistic view of actual problems that might benefit from engineering principles and scientific knowledge.
InteLAB is part of the Chemical & Food Engineering Department (EQA) infrastructure, the Graduate Program of Chemical Engineering (Pós-ENQ), at the Technological Center (CTC) of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC).
Most people working at InteLAB are also part of the Genomic Engineering Group.
