Our Promise to You
for extraordinary competitive advantage
We’re on an exciting mission: to invent, develop and manufacture game-changing solutions that give you extraordinary competitive advantage. We’re a young regenerative medicine company with a long history of innovation. Octane started operations in 2007 but our team has spent the last three decades developing class-leading technology in biomaterials and bioprocesses.
We aimed high from the start. Our legacy began with technology platforms that were developed and applied to study fundamentals in biology within the unique microgravity environment of the Space Shuttle.
Today, we offer advanced, market-ready technologies that build on our strong history of breakthrough insights into the linkages between biology, biomaterials and bioreactors. Working with our customers – primarily regenerative medicine companies such as cell therapy and medical device manufacturers – we commercialize and manufacture regenerative medicine products that accelerate healing and restore quality of life.
