In Ulan-Ude, the company that has become a finalist of the startup tour of Skolkovo plans to launch the production of a bio-engineering substitute for human skin based on the republican industrial park. Innovative products can be used in medicine and cosmetology. The volume of investments will be more than 20 million rubles, the Ministry of Industry of the Republic of Buryatia reported.

The innovative enterprise “Baikal Biotechnology Center” intends to launch the production of innovative collagen-laminated matrices “SheneSkin” in 2020.

The live skin analogue has the appearance of a sterile transparent film. Wound healing remedy will help with burns, trophic ulcers, bedsores, frostbite and nonhealing wounds. The drug can be used in clinics, hospitals and can be sold in pharmacies for self-use. According to project manager Yury Balkhanov, this is a unique product that distinguishes itself through economical production and long-term storage - about a year. At present time the reconstruction of industrial premises has begun in accordance with the international GMP standards, on the basis of the republican industrial park. Production facilities, laboratories and temporary storage facilities will be located on 400 square meters. When entering the production capacity, the company will produce about 12.5 thousand biopolymer matrices "SheneSkin" per year. Investors plan that the project will pay off in three years. The Baikal Biotechnology Center, a small innovative enterprise, was established by the initiative of the Diamed Medical Center and Buryat State University. The company has repeatedly received state support for the development of its project. In 2018, the company took the first place in the specialization area of biomedical technologies of the Skolkovo start-up tour in Buryatia and reached the finals of the start-up conference of Eastern Europe StartupVillage 2018, taking the third place. Previously, the company received a grant of 10 million rubles in the contest “Best Innovative Project” through the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Republic of Buryatia. Another grant, 500 thousand rubles, was received from The Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises in Science and Technology in the nomination of the startup “Umnick”. The company also won in the republican competition for the provision of industrial premises in the industrial park.
