How did this Edinburgh Professor move from studying physics to starting a Biotechnology spin-out company? In our new episode, we hear from Professor Teuta Pilizota all about how her past research experiences led her to where she is today, how her research keeps leading her to new technological developments and how this culminated in her starting a biotech spin-out company.  

Many researchers spent a significant amount of time cultivating microorganisms, so they reach the desired growth phase and density. But what if that whole process could be automated, monitored and measured? This is where the OGI Bio Bioreactor comes in, to save time and allow specifications of culture conditions.
