Perinatal Life Support

Premature birth is a scary event for expecting parents, and the earlier the pregnancy comes to an end the more dangerous it is to the child. Especially before a gestational age of about 28 weeks, the lungs are not ready yet to breathe air. The Perinatal Life Support project was started to conduct research in an effort to provide some solutions in the future that will allow preterm infants to have a chance at life.

PLS animation

Last year, LifeTec Group has joined the consortium working on the Perinatal Life Support project. To explain in short what the problem is and what solutions the consortium team is working on, an animation has been made. We're happy to share this video with you!

If this video attracted your interest and you want to know more, please also visit the official PLS project website or LifeTec's project CASE where we provide updates on our findings.

Partnering in Research

As part of our innovation ambitions, LifeTec Group often joins in collaborative research projects funded by grants. The expertise on creating realistic and clinically relevant testing environments can add a lot of value to such projects, as it allows fast and early assessements of ideas and concepts prior to needing animal trials or clinical investigations. Our team and lab can serve as a central stage, where each partner's R&D efforts are brought together to evaluate how the combined concepts work and if they're ready for the next phase. Feel free to reach out to our team if you're interested to learn how we might collaborate in a research project.

This project is funded by Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union under grant agreement number 863087.
