View some recent biopharm microgravity research payloads and detials on the microgravity experiments conducted for NanoRacks customers in the International Space Station and low earth orbit.

Symbiotic Nodulation

SyNRGE3 (Symbiotic Nodulation in a Reduced Gravity Environment-Cubed) investigates the effect of microgravity on the cell-to-cell signaling and nodule formation between a host plant and symbiotic bacteria.

Customer: Limerick Institute of Technology
Research: Symbiotic Nodulation in Microgravity
NanoRacks Facility: NanoLab Platform
Mission Duration: 09/2014 – 03/2013
Mission Status: In…

Microbial Growth

The University of California Comparison of the Growth Rate and DNA Characterization of Microgravity Exposed Microbial Community Samples (MERCCURI) compares how various microbial communities grow on the ground and in microgravity.

Customer: University of California
Research: Microbial Growth
NanoRacks Facility: NanoRacks Plate Reader
Mission Duration: 03/2014 – 09/2014
Mission Status…

Protein Crystal Growth

PCG-1 uses different protein crystal growth solutions in small crystal slides to grow protein crystals in microgravity. The slides are launched frozen, thawed on orbit to allow crystal growth, examined while on-orbit and then returned.

Research: Protein Crystal Growth
NanoRacks Facility: NanoLab Platform
Mission Duration: 09/2012 –…

Bacteria Growth

The Riverside Christian Schools Bacteria Growth Experiment provides insight as to the potential impact of microgravity on the growth cycle of bacteria. Does microgravity change the nominal growth time cycle of E. coli bacteria as compared to what is normally experienced in Earth gravity?

Customer: Riverside Christian High School
Research: Bacteria Growth
NanoRacks Facility: Interna…
