Regemat 3D Seeks 1.5 Million to Accelerate in Bioprinting

Based in Granada, Regemat 3D is one of the main players in this new industry. The company manufactures tissue and organ biofabrication systems, bioprinters, and bioreactors, which researchers use to try to find solutions to tissue injuries in tissues such as cartilage, bone, spinal cord, and muscle tissue, among others. With Regemat 3D’s 2020 round of funding, the company increased revenue.

Regemat 3D is in search of more capital, to continue growing. The company from Granada that manufactures tissue and organ biofabrication systems is seeking $1.7 million (€1.5 million) to continue advancing in this sector and to be able to go public in the next few years, according to Manuel Figueruela, CEO of Regemat 3D, as he explained to PlantaDoce.

To make this a reality, the Spanish company is opening a round of financing via crowdfunding through Crowdcube and expects to complete the remaining amount to reach $1.7 million (€1.5 million) through “loans for research and development (R&D) projects,” says Figueruela.

The company started with a first investment of $114,000 (€100,000), by the end of 2020 it raised more than $514,000 (€450,000) and is now opening this third round through the British-based platform.

Regemat 3D has the REG4Life bioprinter and a bioreactor to manufacture articular cartilage

Based in Granada, Regemat 3D is one of the main players in this new industry. The company manufactures tissue and organ biofabrication systems, bioprinters, and bioreactors, which researchers use to try to find solutions to tissue injuries in tissues such as cartilage, bone, spinal cord, and muscle tissue, among others.

With Regemat 3D’s 2020 round of funding, the company increased revenue, brought out a new bioprinter, REG4Life, and fine-tuned a bioreactor to make articular cartilage.

The company also launched the labmethods.org platform where researchers from around the world will share their tissue manufacturing methods in a way that will accelerate the development of solutions in the area. “It’s like a recipe website where researchers find descriptions of how to make a particular fabric, and they can access to buy all the necessary ingredients easily and quickly,” explains José Manuel Baena, founder of the company.

Regemat 3D was founded in 2015 and is located in the Granada Health Technology Park. The company was born out of another company, Breca Health Care, which was founded in 2011, and which specializes in 3D printing of medical devices. Regemat 3D emerged as a project focused on cartilage cells.

The 3D bioprinting market will reach a value of $1.647 billion by 2024, according to a study by Markets and Markets. The large number of tissue pathologies resulting from aging and the need to speed up the development of new drugs and reduce the use of animals for research make 3D bioprinting a sector that is gaining a lot of interest in the research and scientific field.
