Cellevate, a biotech company, that develops next generation cell culture systems. The startup creates highly porous and consistent networks of nanofibers through a patented manufacturing process. Cells in these networks are allowed to proliferate and interact with other cells in three dimensions (3D), in contrast to the traditional monolayer cultures seen on two dimensional (2D) surfaces. The company’s goal is to provide life science researchers with more realistic in vitro models, providing more relevant data for successful research.
Cellevate started commercialization of their technology based on applications in the life science field. However, the potential applications are much more far reaching. The company therefore has plans to expand into other areas as part of its growth strategy.
“We are very happy to be able to join NOME and look forward to working with highly experienced business mentors to support us in our business decisions, growth domestically and aboard.”
Cellevate is led by a very ambitious team around CEO Maximilian Ottonson and CTO Albin Jakobsson. Both have extensive expertise in nanofiber scaffolds and electro spinning as well as 3D cell cultures. Cellevate is located in Lund, Sweden and joined NOME in the end of 2017.
