Our History

tebu-bio past & present

2017

We are pleased to launch a new service for 3D cell culture spheroid production, recreating the 3D environment seen in the body, thus permitting complex in vitro cell / tissue interactions thus mimicking in vivo environments.

tebu-bio again this year presented a poster at the AACR meeting in Washington, DC (USA). Nadia Normand Ph.D, Business Development Manager at tebu-bio, presented our abstract produced in collaboration with the CNRS (France), Anaxomics (Spain) and the Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy (Poland) :
"miRNome analyses reveal that activity of CAF expressed podoplanin in the tumour microenvironment is modulated by exosome miRNAs involved in PTEN/PI3K/AKT/mTOR signalling"

tebu-bio's CIR accreditation is again renewed for a further three years (2017, 2018 & 2019), enabling private French companies to benefit from tax refunds on their expenses for  R&D performed by tebu-bio's own European laboratories based near Paris. We initially obtained this accreditation in 2008, which has subsequently been renewed each time.

2016
tebu-bio is pleased to announce their distribution agreement with Dojindo EU GmbH, under which tebu-bio becomes their exclusive European distributor as from June 1st, 2016. Dojindo is a renowned chemical reagent manufacture for chelating agents, analytical chemistry, diagnostic research, molecular biology, cell biology, oxidative stress research.
 
tebu-bio enters an agreement to provide European researchers with access to Time Bioscience's rapidly growing portfolio of drug discovery platforms, consisting of high quality proteins involved in the Wnt/catenin pathway and reporter cell lines designed to monitor the activity of β-catenin-based Wnt signal transduction pathway.
2015
Nadia Normand of tebu-bio laboratories at the AACR 2015Nadia Normand, R&D manager at tebu-bio's laboratories, was pleased to present two posters at the AACR meeting in Philadelphia in April:

tebu-bio participates in the "Experimental and Molecular Therapeutics" poster sessions at the AACR 2014 (San Diego, USA) to present the recent data in Drug Discovery obtained with the SilenciX® KD cellular model applied to synthetic lethality in oxygen controlled (hypoxic) conditions similar to tumor physioxia.
2013
tebu-bio is a partner of the Glycoskin 1 project, certified by the Cosmetic Valley competitive cluster, which has been selected among the call for proposals (AAP) of the FUI 16. tebu-bio brings to the project their expertise in the screening of molecules in cellular models and in multiplex studies to this project.
 
tebu-bio selects StemCultures' Stem Beads FGF2 (but also Activin-A and EGF), a revolutionary growth factor supplement offering a far more efficient way to grow FGF2 dependent stem cells and iPS cells by enabling feeding only bi-weekly.
 
To cover researchers' needs for high quality & high purity fluorescent & luminescent dyes and assays, our experts choose Marker Gene Technologies, expanding tebu-bio's existing offer in nucleic acid labelling, cell-based assays, live imaging and molecular biology by 300+ references.
 
A variety of new, innovative brands for cell culture are introduced, among which GlobalStem and Celartia. tebu-bio also enters into partnerships with Eurogentec (for their research antibodies and molecular biology solutions), and Detroit R&D (antibodies, ELISA kits & antibody arrays).
 
The French Government renews tebu-bio's authorisation to import, export and store primary cells, valid for all our customers throughout Europe (licence IE-2013-677, valid for a period of 5 years).
