– A testbed for the production of biological products.
Testa Center is a private-public initiative between the Swedish government and Cytiva to secure the life science industry’s growth and manufacturing capabilities. It is an essential infrastructure for the development of biological products, which is a pinpointed strategically important area by the Swedish government. Testa Center is a purpose-built open-access bioprocessing testbed with modern upscaling equipment to verify technology or scale-up processes. The main objective is to promote the life science sector’s growth and bridge the gap between discovery and industrialization.
STUNS Life science has collaborated with Testa Center since before its establishment in 2018. In 2017, STUNS Life Science, Region Uppsala, and Testa Center worked together and secured funding for development and brought the center into operation. In this collaboration, STUNS contributes as an independent actor in the application process for funding and project prioritization. STUNS also develops innovation processes and collaboration formats as well as engaging service providers from the ecosystem.
STUNS Life science works with Testa Center through our three initiatives: Testa Center Outreach, Verification Funding and Testa Challenge.
