About Us

We’ve got your cell based research covered!
We are a life science company specialized in the controlled, scalable propagation and standardization of quasi (human) primary cell products (upcyte) and custom cell line development (ixcyte).

Cells are our passion! If you are looking for a reliable partner for your project, we’ve got you covered. Have you started planning for 2021? Our team of experienced scientists are ready to discuss your goals with you – and exceed them. As a team we are upcyted to hear from you and we look forward to working with you in 2021.

upcyte® – expanded primary cells
We are combining large scale cell expansion with physiological relevance. By using our upcyte® protocol non-dividing primary cells can be pushed back into proliferation without altering their most relevant tissue-specific characteristics. We provide assay-ready cells from various upcyted human tissues as well as optimized medium formulations. We are also offering services for the custom upcyting® of requested cell types

ixcyte® – cell line customization
We offer a broad range of cell customizations. You want rapid access to stable cell pools and you are not experienced in lentivirus production? We use 3rd generation lentiviral particles for stable transgene integration, even into hard to transfect cell lines. Polyclonal cell lines can be achieved within weeks.

upcyte & ixcyte service

Do you have primary cells of a specific cell type, a special species, a favourite donor or patient derived disease material? We will apply our upcyte® technology and produce large batches of cells from your donor of choice. The cells will be shipped back to you as cryopreserved vials or can be stored at our facility. This is a milestone dependent offer.

 

Do you need a customized cell line? Use our ixycte® service. We use 3rd generation lentiviral particles for stable transgene integration, even into hard-to-transfect cell lines. Polyclonal cell lines can be achieved within weeks. As additional service we offer characterization and a cell expansion service.
