Australia's first space biology device, the EXPLOR Microgravity, through our partners in Europe, Japan and the United States. This is the first microgravity device that is capable of radiation research and applications beyond just biology.

Mending a Broken Heart Using Microgravity: Cardiovascular Progenitor Cells Hold Promise for Regenerative Therapies.

It is a a three-dimensional device for simulating microgravity or commonly known as the random positioning machine (RPM). With precision control of the both the X and Y axes of the arms, the EXPLOR can generate a “plane” at the center of the sample holder to minimize the effects of Earth’s gravitational vector close to 10^-3g which is same as on the International Space Station.

KURO

The KURO range is a fully autonomous system that conducts cell biological, pharmaceutical, and protein research onboard the International Space Station. The KURO technology maximizes the number of samples you can retrieve from your experiment giving you more bang for your buck. 

EXPLOR Space Technologies is excited to work with YURI Microgravity (Germany) to launch a cell bioreactor experimental payload to the International Space Station (ISS) to study the effects of real microgravity on bone remodeling cells, osteocytes and the effectiveness of a new therapy pharmaceutics to counter the effects of microgravity on bone remodeling.

Microgravity simulation device is the primary product/service as of 2023 but orbital missions are being planned too.
