London, UK, 8th November 2023: H.E.L Group (H.E.L), a global developer and manufacturer of innovative laboratory tools for process optimization, safety, and scale-up, today announced it has received the BioIndustrial Innovation of the Year at the 2023 Biotech Breakthrough Awards. The awards recognizes exceptional achievements across the life science and biotechnology sectors, reflecting the potential of H.E.L’s BioXplorer bioreactors to support small-scale bioprocess development.
H.E.L’s BioXplorer bioreactors enable automated, parallel experimentation from 50ml to 5L. They are suitable for applications such as cell-free enzymatic reactions, bio-product manufacture, process scale-up, scale-down, and gut microbiome simulation, supporting H.E.L’s mission to make the world healthier, safer, and more sustainable.
Launched in June 2023, the BioXplorer 400XL and BioXplorer 400P are the latest products in H.E.L’s portfolio, further enabling efficient, cost-effective development and optimization of industrial bioprocesses. Optimized for syngas fermentation, the BioXplorer 400P combines easy-to-use software with modular hardware to give complete control of four high-pressure bioprocesses simultaneously. The BioXplorer 400 XL features 8 configurable bioreactors, which can be controlled independently or in parallel. Its modular design allows accurate and precise additions of liquids and gases, controlled by up to four sets of peristaltic pumps and up to two sets of mass flow controllers, respectively, with software enabling control of all eight bioprocesses at once.
The Biotech Breakthrough Awards program conducts a comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top companies, solutions, and products in the biotechnology industry. With categories including biopharma, genomics, therapeutics, and bioagriculture, recipients of the awards are driving a positive impact in these industries worldwide.
Louise Madden, CEO at H.E.L Group, said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded the BioIndustrial Innovation of the Year at this year’s Biotech Breakthrough Awards! This award not only underscores H.E.L’s position as a leader in solutions for the biotechnology industry but affirms our commitment to continuous innovation. At H.E.L we strive to pioneer biotechnology solutions that ultimately align with our mission of creating a better world.”
