Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of high pressure-based instruments, consumables, and related services for the global life sciences industry, this morning announced the commercial launch of its Biopharmaceuticals Contract Services Business. The eagerly-anticipated launch follows PBIO’s December 2017 acquisition of the assets of BaroFold, Inc., including patents, equipment, and other intellectual property relating to its unique, high pressure-based protein disaggregation and refolding platform. PBIO expects the technology platform to offer substantial improvement in the quality and costs of manufacturing protein therapeutics. “We are excited to announce the launch of our Biopharmaceutical Contract Services Business for the disaggregation and controlled refolding of proteins,” PBIO Chief Commercial Officer Dr. Bradford A. Young stated in the news release. “For companies involved in protein manufacturing, aggregation of proteins and challenges in achieving and maintaining optimal protein folding conformations are well-known issues that can dramatically reduce a drug’s efficacy and shelf-life. Our proprietary, pressure-based Barofold technology platform can help resolve and optimize these outcomes and can enable the development of novel protein therapeutics in both mammalian and non-mammalian systems, which we believe to be a very large and growing market opportunity.”

About Pressure BioSciences Inc.
Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) is a leader in the development and sale of innovative, broadly enabling, pressure-based solutions for the worldwide life sciences industry. PBIO’s products are based on the unique properties of both constant (i.e., static) and alternating (i.e., pressure cycling technology, or “PCT”) hydrostatic pressure. PCT is a patented enabling technology platform that uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to safely and reproducibly control bio-molecular interactions (e.g., cell lysis, biomolecule extraction). The company’s primary focus is in the development of high pressure-based products for biomarker and target discovery, drug design and development, biotherapeutics characterization and quality control, food science, soil & plant biology, forensics, and counter-bioterror applications. Additionally, PBIO is actively expanding the use of its pressure-based technologies in the following areas: (1) the use of its recently acquired protein disaggregation and refolding technology from BaroFold, Inc. to allow entry into the biologics manufacturing and contract research services sector, and (2) the use of its recently-patented, scalable, high-efficiency, pressure-based Ultra Shear Technology (“UST”) platform to (i) create stable nanoemulsions of otherwise immiscible fluids (e.g., oils and water) and to (ii) prepare higher quality, homogenized, extended shelf-life or room temperature stable low-acid liquid foods that cannot be effectively preserved using existing non-thermal technologies.For more information, visit the company’s website at www.PressureBiosciences.com.
