The company developed an advanced process using a filtering system to boost the yield of cell production.
Steakholder Foods Ltd. (Nasdaq: STKH), (formerly MeaTech 3D: MITC), an international deep-tech food company at the forefront of the cultivated meat industry, today announced that it had developed a process that has achieved 50 times more growth in cell production yield than previously. This breakthrough process uses a filtering system integrated with the company’s growth method and is expected to result in greater outputs.
Due to the current high cost of growth media, achieving a high growth yield with minimal use of growth media is an industry-wide goal. Steakholder Foods is working to optimize its growth methodologies, creating more scalable solutions that will enable cell production at an industrial scale while lowering production costs.
The filtering system maximizes the usage of growth media by enabling the separation of cells from the media, continuously removing the used media, and replacing it with fresh media. The removed media can then be refreshed and reused to enable circular solutions. Implementing the filtering system has proved highly successful for Steakholder Foods, sustainably boosting its cell yields and stimulating the production of greater quantities of cultivated meat relative to the number of materials used.
Orit Goldman, Ph.D., VP of Biology at Steakholder Foods: “The Steakholder Foods’ biology team is pushing the boundaries of cell production methodologies to optimize our yields and enable the food tech revolution.”
