This clip depicts the Techshot ADvanced Space Experiment Processor (ADSEP), which is a commercial space research payload. Illustrated is an abbreviated demonstration (some sequences shortened for time) of the procedures that astronauts aboard the International Space Station carry out with the mini-laboratory research cassettes inside ADSEP. Also shown is ACT2: the syringe-like Techshot sample transfer tool.
Cassette A contains: prototype Techshot tissue engineering equipment being tested as part of the company’s effort to develop a 3D BioFabrication Facility for use exclusively in space.
Cassettes B and C contain: stem cell experiments for Dr. Robert Schwartz at the University of Houston.
Techshot owns and operates ADSEP as a commercial enterprise via a Space Act Agreement with NASA. The company carries out research for itself, commercial companies, universities, NASA and other federal agencies.
