REPLACE THE USE OF FORMALIN AS A FIXATIVE SOLUTION

ADDAX Biosciences is an academic spin-off of the University of Turin, born after long time research activity of its founders on the fixation of pathological tissues. Our company goal is to replace the use of Formalin (a cancerogenic and toxic solution of Formaldehyde) as a fixative solution, while preserving optimal tissue fixation to guarantee correct diagnosis and therapy.

Our company has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 8157692.

The project “GAF – Towards a hospital without formalin” is realized thanks to the co-financing of POR FESR Piemonte 2014-2020, Ob.1 – “Research, technological development and innovation, I.1.b.4.1 “Support for creation and consolidation of innovative start-ups with a high intensity of application and knowledge and research spin-off initiatives”.

The project aims to validate, produce and market GAF, a histological fixative without carcinogenicity, that works as a substitute to Formalin. Achieving the project’s objectives will improve the working conditions of health and research professionals, protecting them from the risk of developing occupational diseases caused by inhaling Formalin vapours.
