The Cultivated B Launches Next-Gen Bioreactor Remote Monitoring and Control Software

The Cultivated B

The Cultivated B (TCB) today announced the availability of its groundbreaking bioreactor control software, enabling a real-time, application-based, personalized user interface with added remote accessibility for its AUXO V® bioreactors. The software, now accessible via the control tower or remotely via phone- and web-based software, marks a significant leap forward in the cultivated meat industry, offering unparalleled convenience, flexibility and efficiency for expert and non-expert users to manage bioprocesses. TCB’s commercially available bioreactor, AUXO V, can be monitored and controlled by anyone, from any location with only a few days of training. “Our new bioreactor user interface embodies TCB’s commitment to innovation and flexibility for users, helping to scale the cultivated meat industry. Now, extremely complex processes can be run with the ease of a household device,” said The Cultivated B CEO Dr. Hamid Noori. “This technology is more than just a product; it's another proof point in our vision of a world where cultivated meat is easily accessible. In order to industrialize sustainable protein production, it is essential that a larger workforce can be trained on new processes, rather than building operations around experts only. We believe that by simplifying the monitoring and control of the production process and making it accessible anywhere at any time, we can significantly accelerate the pace at which cultivated meat reaches mass adoption.” The new bioreactor control software is tailored to meet the diverse needs of user groups with different experience levels, including existing as well as new user groups. Remote monitoring benefits include: Increased flexibility – Choose between direct or remote control of bioprocesses Sustained monitoring – 24/7 availability allows rapid intervention in the event of irregularities Optimized allocation of workforce – Eliminate the need for users to remain onsite by automating processes The next-generation monitoring is not just a technological advancement but also a strategic response to the global shortage of know-how and skilled workers needed to scale the cultivated meat industry. TCB equips the AUXO V bioreactor with an innovative user interface featuring three levels of detail: Operate – Pre-programmed recipes allow seamless operation for non-experts Explore – Adjust key parameters at detailed levels (e.g., temperature, pH, oxygen) Develop– Access collected data outside of the production cycle to refine and further enhance your individual process TCB announced earlier this year the start of manufacturing at the company’s Burlington, Ontario plant. With an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers, TCB refined the production of its AUXO V from lab scale to industrial scale. The multi-use bioreactors are cost-effective, flexible and customizable, designed to offer a unique combination of utility and sustainability. They are equipped with multiple sensors and optimized impellers for different organisms, such as avian and mammalian cells, bacteria or yeast. Short delivery times, modular design and a customer-centric control system make the AUXO V bioreactor a huge accelerator, equipped with novel technology for quick adoption in a rapidly changing market environment. About The Cultivated B (TCB) The Cultivated B’s multinational team of scientists develops and applies breakthrough technologies in cellular agriculture, precision fermentation and advanced bioreactor technology to enable scalable commercialization of the cellular-agriculture industry. TCB serves startups, corporations and academic research institutions within the food, pharma, cosmetics and personal care industries. With its pioneering engineering and production capabilities, TCB enables other companies to produce alternative proteins, such as cultivated meat, at industrial scale. The company’s fundamental commitment to minimizing the natural resources used paves the way toward a sustainable future, locally, regionally and globally. TCB’s research and development team is based in Germany, with manufacturing and an innovation hub based in Canada’s Toronto region. For more information, visit and follow the company on LinkedIn.

Founder of Crypto Capital Venture Predicts Price Break Out for Cardano and Bitcoin, Meme Moguls To Dominate the Bull Market

Total Media

A top crypto analyst has predicted that Bitcoin and Cardano are close to experiencing a price breakout. The founder of Crypto Capital Venture explained that the move is already happening early this cycle. Meme Mogul is another crypto that has been predicted to benefit from this bull market. Let’s see how high these cryptos can go in the bull market. Dan Gambardello Has Predicted a Price Outbreak for Cardano ADA Dan Gambardello, market analyst and founder of Crypto Capital Venture has given his bullish predictions for Cardano. He explained that the Cardano coin is already in the early stages of its bull market. He highlighted the bullish momentum as a positive factor for ADA. He added that the price action displayed on the Cardano chart is “even more exciting”. He explained that the Cardano price has moved above the 20-week and 50-week moving averages. This would allow the price of ADA to increase significantly without entering the overbought level. His first price target for the ADA coin is around the $0.450 level. Based on his prediction, if the price of Cardano breaks above this resistance, then a rally to $0.750 could begin. However, he added that bulls must defend the ADA price from breaking below the 20-day support level. Bitcoin Still Has Massive Upside Potential In the same analysis, Gambardello shared his insight on the price of Bitcoin. He explained that there is currently too much bullishness going on in the crypto market. For a bullish scenario, he explained that the Bitcoin price chart must remain above its upper trendline. This excitement can be linked to the anticipation of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval. According to Gambardello, a sustained bullish period in the short term would hint at an actual bull market entering into 2024. For this to happen, the Bitcoin value must surge above $38,000. He added that only a break above $38,000 would guarantee a continuation of the bullish market. BTC made an attempt to reclaim this resistance in mid-November but has dropped below $37,000. Because of this, he warned that the market could become more choppy with sideways price action. Meme Moguls (MGLS) Set To Dominate the Bull Market A fast-growing crypto that has caught the attention of the crypto community ahead of the bull market is Meme Moguls (MGLS). The project has been highly rated by crypto experts because of its plethora of unique features and opportunities. Most notably is the first stock exchange platform built for the meme coin sector. This stock exchange platform was built specifically to cater to the needs of meme enthusiasts. Users will find the widest array of meme coins and meme-based assets. The platform has also infused a tiered leaderboard where traders who rank higher earn rewards. The platform will provide the latest meme trends and updates to help. The Meme Moguls ecosystem has also retained the community-driven nature of meme coins. Within the ecosystem, users will connect with other meme coin enthusiasts. They will connect, share information, and trade ideas, among other things. With the aim of revolutionizing the meme coin space, Meme Moguls has been highly rated by crypto experts. This can be seen in the growing interest in the project. Because of this, analysts have predicted up to a 3,500% price rise in the bull market. A great window of opportunity is still open as you can buy the MGLS token for only $0.0021 before this predicted rally. Visit Meme Moguls Contact Details Meme Moguls

Tematica Research latest report shows sectors continue to struggle with some notable exceptions


Tematica Research head of indexing Mark Abssy joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share insights regarding the market report that shows the performance of digital infrastructure and connectivity companies in October. According to Abssy, digital infrastructure and connectivity companies, like the broader equity market, faced challenges in October, with the index declining by 6.24% during the month. The advance/decline perspective was also challenging, with 15 companies in the index seeing gains, while 48 companies lost ground. However, amidst the market challenges, there are some bright spots and positive prospects for digital infrastructure. One notable development is a new wave of investment as the 5G rollout progresses from its initial stage to the second stage, where existing networks undergo densification. This transition marks the beginning of the real impact of 5G technology, driving the industry forward and leading to record-setting investment flows in the digital infrastructure space. Abssy highlighted key companies that demonstrated positive performance in this environment. For instance, American Tower, a digital transmission company, saw its stock trade up by 9.34%. Arista Networks, a digital connectivity company, also rose by 8.94% due to strong quarterly results, which led to analyst rating upgrades and increased price targets. In summary, despite market challenges in October, the digital infrastructure and connectivity sector is experiencing growth opportunities, particularly as 5G technology continues to advance. Companies that are well-positioned to benefit from this trend are attracting investment and showing positive performance in the market. Contact Details Proactive Investors +1 347-449-0879
