Ceapro Inc. Announces Three Abstracts Selected for Oral Presentation at the 17th European Meeting on Supercritical Fluids (EMSF 2019)

- Important research findings from collaboration with University of Alberta demonstrating potential of Ceapro’s unique enabling PGX technology to produce innovative delivery systems -  

EDMONTON, Alberta, Feb. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ceapro Inc. (TSX-V: CZO) (“Ceapro” or the “Company”), a growth-stage biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of active ingredients for healthcare and cosmetic industries, announced today that its collaborators from University of Alberta will present at the 17th European Meeting on Supercritical Fluids (EMSF 2019) being held April 8-11, 2019 in Ciudad Real, Spain.  

Summarized below are the abstracts that have been selected for oral presentation at EMSF 2019. 

Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Time: 3:15 PM CEST
Presenter: Dr. Ricardo Couto
Abstract #33537: Drying biopolymers with Pressurized Gas eXpanded (PGX) liquids: polysaccharides vs proteins
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
Time: 10:45 AM CEST
Presenter: Yonas Gebrehiwot
Abstract #33540: Pressurized Gas eXpanded (PGX) liquid drying of soy protein isolate
Time: 12:45 PM CEST
Presenter: Zixiang Liu
Abstract #33540: Drying of sodium alginate using Pressurized Gas eXpanded (PGX-SA) liquid technology

Ceapro has conducted research on a number of various biopolymer samples from different sources. These studies conducted in collaboration with Dr. Feral Temelli’s team at University of Alberta further demonstrate the versality of PGX Technology. Results of these studies illustrate the potential to dry, purify, micronize and functionalize proteins, peptides, and polysaccharides that can lead to the development of highly potent bioactive delivery systems with desirable characteristics. Additionally, the studies demonstrate the potential to generate new material (PGX SA) that exhibits a unique fibrous structure, which can be very desirable for wound healing applications or bioactive delivery systems.
