UPM Biomedicals GrowDex and GrowInk protocol competition Now Open

This year we announce a new competition for the most interesting cell culture protocol used with GrowDex hydrogels or GrowInk bioinks. No matter which application you are working with or which cells you have cultured, we are interested to hear about your interesting results and the protocol you have used. The prize for the best protocol is an Oura Ring!  For participating in the best protocol competition, please email us to biomedicals@upm.com and we will provide the competition form to submit your protocol.


The winning entry will be announced at the 6th Annual Biomedicals Conference 17-18th September 2020, Helsinki, Finland where leading scientists will gather again to present and discuss the latest hot topics and trends in 3D cell culture, organ-on-a-chip models, 3D printing and much more. 

The conference is open to scientists interested in 3D cell technology and offers both educational and networking opportunities. This year the conference is arranged as a live and online event. Register today through this link in order to guarantee your place (free).
