Crystal Research Associates (www.crystalra.com) has issued an Executive Informational Overview® (EIO) on Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (PBIO-OTC). The full 76-page report is available on Crystal Research Associates’ website at www.crystalra.com.
Pressure BioSciences, Inc. develops and commercializes proprietary laboratory instruments and consumable products. Its product portfolio is based on its patented pressure cycling technology (PCT) platform, which is able to apply and release high levels of hydrostatic pressure in a safe and controlled manner. The Company has installed roughly 235 Barocycler instruments in approximately 150 academic, government, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical laboratories, including many of the top laboratories in the U.S.
To date, there are over 100 publications from leading scientists on the multiple advantages of the PCT platform.
While this technology has applications across many industries, Pressure BioSciences is initially using PCT to develop products that improve sample preparation—the vitally important process of preparing a sample for analysis. In life science research, sample preparation is integral to tens of thousands of laboratories worldwide yet it is often a significant bottleneck to discovery and progress.
Pressure BioSciences’ line of Barocycler® products enables scientists to harness the power of PCT in the lab. Biological samples (e.g., cells and tissues from humans, animals, plants, and microbes) are placed in single-use processing tubes inside a Barocycler instrument and exposed to programmable cycles of low-to-intense pressure—up to 58,000 psi. This act of “cycling” pressure can accelerate and control physical and chemical processes, including the breakup of cellular structures and release of biomarkers from a sample for subsequent testing and analysis. Pressure BioSciences’ portfolio also includes Shredder instruments (for rapidly shredding or grinding samples), sample preparation kits and reagents, and related consumable products (e.g., tubes to hold the samples during the PCT process).
