To accomplish their ambitious mission, they were looking for a solution that would enable their scientists to explore vast design spaces without the need to write code.
Their core challenges included:
- Astronomical costs associated with commercial media
- Feasibility of the necessary factor screening
- Reproducibility of experimental processes for iterative development
While being a relatively small team, these challenges represented a fundamental obstacle HigherSteaks needed to overcome in pursuit of its goals.
HigherSteaks ultimately selected Synthace as their core experimental solution as it aligned with their vision of being able to explore large design spaces, create repeatable workflows, and automate the execution of their experiments.
HigherSteaks were able to optimize cell growth and differentiation by understanding the full range of factors at play with far fewer experimental runs. This saved time and money, and helped the team move with confidence towards better results.
The HigherSteaks team obtained a significantly increased cellular yield, and at the same time, greatly reduced their costs “by an order of magnitude.”
Reducing costs “by an order of magnitude.”
"In just a few months Synthace saved me from performing 20,000 manual calculations—it’s all done for me."
Stem Cell Scientist III, HigherSteaks
HigherSteaks is on a mission to reduce traditional meat consumption by having a 5% share of the global pork market by 2030 and from there, to reduce meat consumption further by bringing other cultured meat products to market.
