We are developing polymers to enable the filtering of somatic stem cells from blood.

Ilika has developed an extensive library of bio-functional materials specifically designed to promote or deter cell binding, enrich specific cell types from diverse populations and promote cell growth on tailored surfaces. We are working together with medical device companies to create valuable products through the application of cell-specific functional coatings optimised using our high throughput techniques.

The application areas in which we are active include:

  • Cell replacement for organ regeneration
  • Implants
  • Diagnostic devices
  • Cell purification
