About Mimix Biotherapeutics Ltd.

Established in 2019, the company leverages Sound Induced Morphogenesis (SIM), a proprietary technology that uses sound in conjunction with cells, stem cells, spheroids, organoids & bioactives, to create tissue-relevant architectures (bio-patterns). SIM replicates nature’s design strategy by controlling shape & function, the two fundamentals in developmental biology.

Sound-induced morphogenesis is born of over a decade of intensive research and development incubated at the AO Foundation in Davos, Switzerland.

Headquartered in the Swiss Innovation Park in Biel/Bienne, MimiX is focusing its energies on clinical translation, with its first product, FastSkin®. FastSkin®, an advanced dermal substitute designed to treat acute and chronic wounds, uses the cutting-edge biofabrication technique of soundinduced morphogenesis (SIM).

MimiX Biotherapeutics is seeking FDA approval for FastSkin®, which is set to revolutionize the industry as the world's first clinical acoustic cell patterning product. This milestone marks a turning point in regenerative medicine and underscores MimiX's commitment to improving the future of healthcare.
