InnoStudio Inc. is a member of the Darholding/ThalesNano global organization, one of the largest upstream technology networks in the Central European region, founded in the 80’, now with over 150 employees and corporate headquarters in Europe and USA. The holding’s companies with chemistry driven key research, provides products and services to 75 countries, they also received the highly prestigious RD 100 Award – US (also called technical Oscar) twice.
InnoStudio has realized the growing importance of space chemistry in 2014, it has co-founded the Space Chemistry Consortium (2016), which currently has 40 academic and industrial members from 5 continents, and is the co-organizer of the Space Chemistry Symposium series since 2017, under the umbrella of the American Chemical Society. One of the first scientific papers of the field was published by InnoStudio in Nature Reviews in Chemistry in 2017.
In December 2019, InnoStudio was the first in the world to carry out nanomolecular chemical synthesis experiments on the International Space Station (ISS), which provided promising results for the development and manufacturing of novel active ingredients for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and agrochemical sectors. InnoStudio together with CycloLab was also the first to investigate the possible effects of microgravity on the remdesivir-SBECD interaction, the most promising drug for the treatment of COVID-19. The research has combined the advantages of the microgravity environment with drug research and was carried out by using the Japanese Japan Manned Space Systems Corporation’ and the Belgian Space Application Services’ space technology platforms. The samples were delivered to the International Space Station by the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft’s CRS-21 commercial mission in December 2020.
Innostudio is investing great efforts into sending its self-developed flow chemistry synthesis to space to be used for both commercial and research purposes.
InnoStudio is represented in the US by its sister company, Agrothetis Inc. in Stuart, Florida.
