LUND, Sweden – Cellevate AB, an innovative biotech company that develops the next generation of cell culture systems designed to revolutionize biomanufacturing, announces positive feasibility results in a collaborative study performed by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. In this Vinnova-funded project, the results showed that Cellevat3d™ microcarriers are highly effective in promoting the growth of HEK293 cells. More importantly, positive feasibility data were obtained for AAV (Adeno-Associated Virus) vector transfection and production, further validating the potential of Cellevat3d™ microcarriers in bioprocessing applications.

“We are excited with the outcomes of this collaboration project with RISE and deeply grateful for the continued financial support from Vinnova. RISE is one of our partners in the validation study program of the Cellevat3d™ microcarriers in bioproduction applications. The positive results from this feasibility study further confirm the potential of this cutting-edge technology in bioprocessing applications and encourage us to continue with the planned studies in cell and gene therapy and novel vaccines production”, says Laura Chirica, CEO Cellevate.
