About HCS Pharma and BIOMIMESYS®

BIOMIMESYS® hydroscaffold 3D is the only technology based Hyaluronic Acid  (HA) and extracellular matrix compound ready to use. BIOMIMESYS® technology is protected by an exclusive patent held by HCS Pharma.

As it is physiological “by design” BIOMIMESYS® hydroscaffol is well adapted to in vitro meat development. It answers to several challenges of clean meat production like the structuration of meat (with a possible adaption of scaffold stiffness according to the kind of meat) or co-culture of cells (muscle and fat cells) which is mandatory to produce meat taste. The matrix is also well adapted to be used with synthetic or plant-based serum.

Due to these unique properties, BIOMIMESYS® hydroscaffold from HCS Pharma has been chosen in the european project ScaLABle-MEAT with three partners Meatable (Holland), Bit Bio (UK) and Ebers (Spain).

The physicochemical properties of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in which cells reside have emerged as an important regulator of cell behavior. To mimic the ECM, we need to know the physicochemical properties (mechanical & composition) in normal and pathological organs. BIOMIMESYS® hydroscaffold 3D technology allows to reproduce the cell microenvironment of each organ by modifying the composition and the elastic modulus to reach the target healthy or pathological organ.
