AQIX® - Liquid Life
Physicians and scientists have a major problem of keeping organs, tissues and cells in a viable state during storage/transport by plane, train and car. The current products on the market are designed to keep donor organs/tissue biopsies/therapeutic cells preserved and viable for up to 24 hours, after which time they usually die.
With this limited time window and growing demand, there is a need for a solution that preserves the tissues and organs and cells for a significantly longer period for the benefit of physicians, scientists and patients around the world. Aqix Ltd have developed the product, AQIX RS-I®, which gives up to 72 hours of storage/transport time for all types of human biopsied tissues, thus adding a further 48 hours more transport time to enable delivery to international destinations. Extending the viable storage periods and transportation times by 66% will enable access to a much wider range of people in need and will facilitate an expansion in the use of live samples for vital research.
AQIX RS-I® can currently only be used for laboratory research purposes only. It is used in the storage and transport of cells and tissue biopsies and normothermic perfusion of tissues and non-transplantable, human donor organs for use in new drug design bioassay investigations. CE Mark status is currently being sought for the AQIX RS-I® product to be sold as a preservation and normothermic perfusion fluid.
