Pressure BioSciences, Inc. develops pressure cycling technology (PCT) solutions in the United States. Its PCT technology uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to control the actions of molecules in biological samples, such as cells and tissues from human, animal, plant, and microbial sources. The company offers Barocycler instrumentations, including Barocycler NEP3229, Barocycler NEP2320, Barocycler HUB440, PCT MicroTube Adapter Kit, The Shredder SG3, Barocycler HUB880, Barozyme HT48, BaroFlex 8-well Processing Strips, and PCT-HD laboratory instrumentation.
It also distributes Constant Systems cell disruption equipment, parts, and consumables. In addition, the company offers Barocycler consumable products, such as PULSE Tubes, which transmit the power of PCT from the Barocycler instrument to the sample; Non-Disk PULSE Tubes that offer variable sample volumes; ProteoSolve for Systems Biology, which is a PCT-dependent method for the extraction, isolation, and fractionation of nucleic acids, proteins, and lipids from animal and plant samples used in laboratory research.
Its Baracycler consumable products also include ProteoSolve for Conventional Extraction that is a PCT-dependent kit for the extraction of proteins from various samples; mitochondria isolation kits that contain the chemical ingredients required for a scientist to extract mitochondria from skeletal muscle and lung tissue for subsequent analysis; and PCT Micro-Pestle and PCT MicroTubes to enhance the extraction of protein, DNA, RNA, and small molecules from small amounts of solid samples, such as soft animal tissues or biopsies. Pressure BioSciences, Inc. serves researchers at academic laboratories; government agencies; and biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and other life sciences institutions. Pressure BioSciences, Inc., formerly known as Boston Biomedica, Inc., was founded in 1978 and is based in South Easton, Massachusetts.
