Pebble offers our proprietary state-of-the-art living organ systems to researchers who want to develop tangible healthcare products and innovations. Line-of-sight to patients is important to us, and sits closely with our strong moral objective to make a difference. We will continually strive to improve our living organ system models, and will bespoke build systems based on a researchers need – this is often the best part of the job!
We will maintain our strong 3Rs focus (reduction, refinement and replacement of animals in research) and offer an ethical alternative to large animal research, not using laboratory pigs in Pebble’s laboratories. Instead, we will support local farmers in rearing pigs to the highest husbandry standards, and only use surplus biological material. This is important, not only ethically, but also to ensure that we have full provenance of our biological material – we know the health of the animal throughout its life.
We are a high-knowledge, innovative company, and inherently we are developing our own products and therapies across three business units. Our pipeline includes a broad range of perfusion and preservation solutions, protocols and systems, and first-in-class blood purification devices (for leukocytes, cytokines, complement components, and electrolytes).
