Introduction to the project
In the last years, regenerative medicine has been developing rapidly: cellular therapies are beginning to be used on a large scale, many artificial tissues have already been produced and studied, and bioreactor technology is making progress. However, there are still missing measurement samples and protocols, without which it is not possible to ensure process and product safety.
The Metregen project began with the aim of helping to close this gap, developing innovative measuring devices, validation methods for cell culture processes, materials and reference methods to be used in processes and products in regenerative medicine. A more efficient metrology system in the field of health is the basis for a more reliable and efficient use of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques as well as of new technologies development, necessary to enhance healthcare and patient care.
Objectives of the project
This project has the objective to develop traceable measurement technologies in order to characterize cellular and macromolecular behaviour of products and processes in regenerative medicine. An objective made possible by the great cooperation between the Italian National Institute of Metrological Research, the University of Piedmont and the partner companies in order to share the respective expertise in nanoscale measurement techniques, tissue engineering, stem cell genetics and chemistry for the research development on measurement methods and technologies applied to regenerative medicine.
Tecnolab’s role in the project
Tecnolab has carried out the study regarding morphology and measurement on devices, the so-called bioreactors on which, subsequently, it was expecting the growth of artificial organs.
