U-M spin-off 3D Biomatrix to bring 3D cell matrices to market this year

Some of the companies looking to move into the Venture Accelerator at the University of Michigan's North Campus Research Complex are enabling research rather than actually conducting it.

3D Biomatrix is a prime example. The University of Michigan spin-off develops and makes 3D cell matrices for cell growth in testing. These small scaffoldings provide small dips for the cells to develop. Most of the current products on the markets offer flat surfaces, such as slide or Petri dishes.  

"We have had some sales of the scaffolding and we are about to sell the commercial drop plates," says Meghan Cuddihy, senior scientist with 3D Biomatrix. "We're ready to commercialize."

The three-person company is hammering out the details for a lease at the Venture Accelerator. It expects to begin selling its products, with more in the offering, later this year.
