Systemic Bio opens new headquarters at TMC Innovation Factory Labs

Systemic Bio, a 3D Systems company, recently opened its new headquarters for hydrogel scaffold manufacturing and organ-on-a-chip research and development. The state-of-the-art facility is located in the TMC Innovation Factory Labs on the Texas Medical Center campus in Houston and features a clean room for manufacturing bioprinted hydrogels.

From here, Systemic Bio engineers and scientists will continue the development and production of the company’s proprietary h-VIOS (human vascularized integrated organ systems) organ-on-a-chip platform.

The h-VIOS platform enables the replication of various organ and disease functions and consists of vascularized hydrogel scaffolds. It allows the survival and function of human cells, both healthy and diseased, and the physiological delivery of drugs to these cells. The new manufacturing facility will enable sterile and quality-controlled production of h-VIOS chips and plates used by Systemic Bio’s pharmaceutical partners for drug testing.

“The opening of this facility is a fantastic milestone in Systemic Bio’s journey to accelerate drug discovery and development, and a leap forward for the bioprinting space,” said Taci Pereira, CEO of Systemic Bio. “With 3D Systems’ state-of-the-art print-to-perfusion bioprinting technology, our new cleanroom and an exceptional team of scientists and engineers, we can now produce patterned sterile hydrogel scaffolds for commercial use with unprecedented precision, quality and scalability. This is a game-changer for bioprinting – moving from experimental research to large-scale production. The h-VIOS platform is just the beginning of what we can unleash with this new capability in the biotech industry, and we look forward to continuing to work with pharmaceutical and biotech companies to pursue these new opportunities.”

Systemic Bio is pursuing multi-year partnerships with pharmaceutical companies and is partnering with biotechnology companies interested in utilizing its hydrogel manufacturing capabilities. The company is also currently hiring for several open positions. For more information, please visit the company’s website.
