We embrace “Open innovation” by which new mixing products required by customers are developed with the use of our unique intellectual property rights and research equipment, and also provide solution hardware and software. Please make full use of the equipment of our laboratory to achieve your purpose. The contracted numerical calculation for performing fluid calculation, structural calculation, thermal analysis, and coupled calculation is developed with systems such as a dedicated personnel system and EWS hardware / spreadsheet software, which comply with all high-level requirements. In our culture research department, instead of the customers who may be troubled by examination of scale-up and devices or examination of conditions, contracted cell culture evaluation is performed by specialized researchers. You can use this for the initial-stage examination and examination of devices for industrial production. In regenerative medicine and the use of iPS cells in drug development, a scheme in which the development and examination of dedicated devices for 3D floating mixed cell cultures is performed right from the beginning is constructed, and devices having the actions requested by customers are developed and provided. Of course, SATAKE also performs GMP validation at the time of installation of single-use equipment and production machines.

Evaluation of contracted cell culture
We are fully equipped with a clean room (cell culture room) dedicated to contracted cell culture in our mixing technology laboratory in order to comply with the various demands of the customers including the “Inability to reproduce the results obtained in the laboratory when scale-up is performed”, “Failure to understand what to do even though optimization in production has been examined earlier”, and “Desire to confirm if buying a new BioReactor would really be effective”, etc. Also, through cooperation with external subcontractors, we are now in possession of equipment with which we can examine scale-up up to the max. 200-l class, equipment and fields with which we can evaluate iPS cell differentiation induction, and at the same time, we can perform operation with the combined use of CFD simulation and contracted numerical fluid calculation, and provide optimum services in line with customers’ needs through our knowledge of the mixing technology cultivated for many years.Evaluation of contracted cell culture
Development of Regenerative Medicine / iPS Cell Differentiation Induction BioReactor
We perform research and development of 3D floating cell cultures for regenerative medicine and in the use of iPS cells in drug development. At the same time, we perform association between iPS cell differentiation induction and device operation conditions, as well as related research in collaboration with the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research, and apply it to the development of devices. Particularly, through the validation of numerical calculations and experiment results, we grasp the different characteristics of individual cells, and perform optimum device customization and development. As a result, there are almost no standard machines. We promote research, development, and promotion of products through joint research and development in close contact with our customers under the notion that “We are always the top runner” in 3D floating mixed cell cultures. While we cannot publish several of our developments that are bound by an NDA, we are promoting many application developments for industrialization. We request those customers who are migrating to a higher stage from the laboratory stage to get in touch with us once.
