Originally established in Los Angles by a Drexel alumnus, Orange Maker has established an East Coast research lab here in Philadelphia. The company has created a unique process and is formulating advanced materials for professional grade 3D printing applications which enable continuous high-resolution printing, rather than the traditional layer-by-layer approach. Orange Maker was a member at ic@3401 where the company continued to leverage its relationship with Drexel University. Orange Maker participated in a six-month lab on-boarding program, receiving guidance from Drexel and the Science Center to help the company meet specific milestones before signing on as an official Port resident in January 2016.

Keosys Medical Imaging, a graduate of the Science Centers Digital Health Accelerator, provides innovative medical imaging solutions for multisite clinical trials and telemedicine. Headquartered in France, Keosys has become a European leader in Imaging Data Management Systems and advanced medical imaging software. Keosys is participating in the Science Centers Global Soft Landing Program which leverages the assets and resources of the Science Center and the Greater Philadelphia entrepreneurial community to help global companies establish a foothold in the regions life sciences and technology markets.

ConquerAb is addressing undesirable immune responses to protein-based therapies. ConquerAb™ includes consulting services and a proprietary technology platform, with medical device development opportunities.

The Science Centers Port business incubator helps emerging life sciences, physical sciences, and digital technology companies operate and grow through a suite of related programs and facilities. The Port provides co‐working spaces, cubicles, fully furnished offices, and wet and dry labs directly in the heart of the Science Centers legacy campus at uCity Square. Beyond the physical infrastructure, Port residents are immediately plugged in to a rich network of resources where they can access the programs, the people and the support that can help grow their businesses.
