NetworkNewsBreaks – Pressure BioSciences Inc.’s (PBIO) Ultra High Pressure HUB Platform Featured at World’s Largest Annual Food Science Conference

June 19, 2019 11:07:38

Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO) today announced the featuring of its HUB platform of unique, ultra-high pressure instruments in three presentations at the world’s largest annual food science conference, the Institute of Food Technologists (“IFT”), held in New Orleans, Louisiana, earlier this month. According to the update, the presentations reported the use of PBIO’s HUB440 and HUB880 Explorer systems to advance understanding of the effects of high pressure processing (“HPP”) on serious food-borne pathogens in liquid food products and ground meat, as well as the decontamination of such pathogens. “The need for safer food is a world-wide concern.  In recognition, the United Nations proclaimed June 7, 2019 as the first World Food Safety Day,” PBIO President and CEO Richard T. Schumacher said in the news release. “HPP currently plays an important role in food safety: although this unique process is barely 20 years old, it has nonetheless already grown into an estimated $20 billion market.  By 2026, the projected market size of the high pressure processing food market could reach approximately $42 billion (Visiongain, 2016).  We believe that presentations such as Dr. Fouladkhah’s at this year’s IFT Conference will help generate awareness of our new, powerful yet affordable bench-top HUB family of products in the food industry, government, military, and academic laboratory environment, and that this added exposure will result in an increased demand for our HUB equipment in this large and growing market.”

About Pressure BioSciences Inc.

Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) is a leader in the development and sale of innovative, broadly enabling, pressure-based solutions for the worldwide life sciences industry. The company’s products are based on the unique properties of both constant (i.e., static) and alternating (i.e., pressure cycling technology, or “PCT”) hydrostatic pressure. PCT is a patented enabling technology platform that uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to safely and reproducibly control bio-molecular interactions (e.g., cell lysis, biomolecule extraction). PBIO’s primary focus is in the development of PCT-based products for biomarker and target discovery, drug design and development, biotherapeutics characterization and quality control, soil & plant biology, forensics, and counter-bioterror applications. Additionally, major new market opportunities have emerged in the use of its pressure-based technologies in the following areas: (1) the use of its recently acquired PreEMT technology from BaroFold, Inc. to allow entry into the biologics contract research services sector, and (2) the use of its recently-patented, scalable, high-efficiency, pressure-based Ultra Shear Technology (“UST”) platform to (i) create stable nanoemulsions of otherwise immiscible fluids (e.g., oils and water) and to (ii) prepare higher quality, homogenized, extended shelf-life or room temperature stable low-acid liquid foods that cannot be effectively preserved using existing non-thermal technologies.
