NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company that delivers a new generation of social communication solutions for business, today announces the online availability of its interview with Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of innovative solutions for the worldwide life sciences industry.
The interview can be heard at http://NNW.fm/PBIO-Interview-October-2017
Kicking off the interview, NNW’s Stuart Smith introduces Richard T. Schumacher, founder and CEO of Pressure BioSciences, who describes the unique technologies at play with the company’s award-winning, high pressure table-top instruments.
“We supply instruments and consumables to life science laboratories all over the world,” says Schumacher. “These are the laboratories that are aggressively looking for the next billion-dollar drug, the next cure, the next preventive strategy, the next vaccine.”
Instruments designed and manufactured by Pressure BioSciences are constructed to handle extremely high pressure points, up to 100,000 pounds per square inch of hydrostatic pressure. Schumacher points out that everything in nature has its own pressure point, which means under the right pressure and temperature conditions every biological cell sample — whether it is from a virus, bacterium, normal or cancerous cell, animal or plant — can be placed under pressure to be broken open to release its biomolecules (e.g., DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids) for analysis. The company’s patented high pressure cycling technology (PCT) provides researchers with the ability to exquisitely control the critical sample preparation process. PBI believes that there are as many as 500,000 researchers worldwide who need to break cells in their studies, and that many are using old, archaic methods to do so.
Pressure BioSciences recently received patents for its Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Schumacher says this technology could provide a breakthrough when it comes to making cannabidiol (CBD) oil water soluble.
“We believe we can take CBD rich oil, put it through our system, break the oil down to very small droplets, and thus make it essentially water soluble, which means the bioavailability of CBD would dramatically increase,” he says, noting the problem of making CBD oils water soluble has plagued the cannabis industry from the beginning.
Pressure BioSciences, which completed 2016 with $2 million in sales with only one salesperson on board, has recently added five more people to the sales staff — and the team is diligently working to continue the company’s progress in the industry. Its newest table-top, high-pressure instrument is a finalist in the 2017 R&D 100 Awards, which are often referred to as the “Oscars of Innovation”. Furthermore, key opinion leaders around the globe are beginning to recognize the Barocycler 2320EXT instrument as a “must have” for laboratory research because of the many advantages the instrument has over its competitors, including a new USB output port where data generated by the instrument can be downloaded, making it a useful tool for FDA-required testing in biopharma quality control, a brand new application.
