CytoNest is proud to be part of Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) - Greater Yield Initiative

Agribusinesses looking to pursue cultured meats — grown from animal cells, with no need for animal slaughter — require platforms called 3DCC (3-dimensional cell culturing). CytoNest uses nanofiber technology to create 3DCC platforms that overcome some of the limitations of other commercial-grade systems on the market... read here

3D fiber scaffolds for shrimp

This project will help engineer an edible nanofiber scaffold tailored specifically for Pacific white shrimp. The work would enable thicker cut production of cultivated shrimp with improved texture. The project would also assess the feasibility of scaled-up cell expansion with the developed nanofiber scaffolds. Ultimately, this work could enable large-scale production of cultivated seafood via tailored scaffolding. more here
