Adipose tissue and the regenerative cells contained therein are the focus of LipoRegena, a company providing assistance to doctors with gaining those cells. Liposuction material is processed directly on site to get access to regenerative cells in a one-step procedure, bringing the cells right back to the patient for regenerative or aesthetic purposes. Alternatively, the cells can be banked for future use.

The continuing trend towards miniaturization delivers ever more compact and powerful products. The requirements placed on microparts in the production sector, as well as academic and industrial research are constantly rising. To keep up with these developments new manufacturing standards are needed. We establish high-resolution 3D-printing as a supplement to established tooling-based fabrication methods. 

UpNanos novel and innovative 3D-printing process enables economical production of polymeric microparts with highest precision and resolution in the 100 nm range, without exceeding tolerances. The lead product NanoOne combines the precision of 2-photon polymerization with unmatched throughput. And thus, economic efficiency!
