Longboat Amniotics was born out of the discovery of novel stem cells in full term amniotic fluid. Research on these cells has demonstrated a number of unique properties in them, highlighting their extraordinary suitability for medical applications. These properties, in combination with safe collection, ethical agreeability, tissue specificity and high cell counts harbour the promise of the exciting journey we have started pushing medical boundaries.
The science and research behind the discoveries on which the company is based has been carried out within the realms of the reputable Lund University in southern Sweden, one of its prime research centers BMC (Bio Medical Center) Research Center, and the university hospital in Lund. Therefore Longboat Amniotics considers itself today to be uniquely positioned to translate stem cell technologies into novel and improved human therapeutics.
The ultimate vision is to contribute to the successful treatment of serious human diseases by providing the very best cells for various regenerative medical applications. The fact that our cells are of neonatal source (and safely retrieved from the amniotic fluid from C-sections) means that they have greater genome integrity. And also other positive attributes of the neonatal source of our cells we suggest will make them superior to traditional sources of stem cells that are currently in therapeutic use.
As part of Longboat Amniotics´ commitment to providing the best cell therapeutics we are developing these for treatments of orphan diseases with high unmet needs in collaboration with international renowend KOL and partners. In a nutshell, Longboat Amniotics has designed and built a complete eco system for managing these cells in a safe, secure and controlled manner, which they are now ready to expand and scale up. The journey continues. Longboat Amniotics will push the boundaries of science within regenerative medicine to save and improve the lives of many.

Typically, this could include seed train, bioreactor cultivation, harvest, filtration and protein purification in successive steps.
Testa Center is open for national and international academic and commercial projects. Testa Center was opened in September 2018 and since the start, ten different organizations have executed projects in the Center. Two larger academic institutions (Uppsala University & Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden) have performed projects with the aim at generating larger amounts of material for research as well as extensive educational activities around bioproduction. Several commercial projects have performed projects in Testa Center including mammalian and microbial expression systems for a variety of different proteins.
Prior to entering the execution phase in Testa Center, projects generally go through a longer planning and experimental design phase delineating everything from feasibility, scaling strategy, instrumentation and consumables. The service platform offered is unique in the sense that projects and organizations can work side by side with bioprocessing experts to reduce risk when scaling up and building knowledge around the process.
For cell culturing, Testa Center offers bioreactors from 1-500L for mammalian cells and 1-50L for microbial cultures. For harvest, Testa Center has instrumentation for filtration and as well as batch and continuous centrifugation.

Their proprietary technology is a unique combination of antimicrobial agents with broad-spectrum activity and increased tissue tolerability. It effectively kills free-living bacteria and biofilms, which are aggregates of bacteria notorious for being highly resistant to antibiotics of all kind. It kills bacteria by targeting multiple microbial components, making it unlikely for bacteria to develop resistance to the technology or cross-resistance to other antibiotics.
In hospital or community settings, extensive amounts of antibiotics are used both systemically and topically without being able to eradicate biofilm infections. SoftOx is focused on developing our technology into clinically proven antimicrobials for topical application to prevent and control difficult-to-treat biofilm infections and to reduce inappropriate use of antibiotics and the emergence of antibiotic resistance. To achieve these goals, SoftOx has employed a competent team and established partnerships with expert scientists and clinicians from the University of Copenhagen and Bispebjerg Hospital in Denmark. Together this team is devoted to ensure successful clinical implementation of SoftOx’ products.

www.probi.seProbiotics have been part of the human diet for millennia and are found naturally in foods like pickled cucumbers, olives, sauerkraut, salami, yoghurt and sour milk. Many probiotic bacteria belong to the Lactobacillus or Bifidobacteriumgenuses. These are harmless and occur naturally in the gastrointestinal tract of humans and animals.BALANCED FLORA FOR GOOD HEALTHThe composition of the gastrointestinal microflora is very important to our health. Disturbing the balance between “good” and “bad” bacteria may cause health problems and serious diseases. Probiotics help to balance the intestinal flora, which can result in a healthier digestive system and a strong immune system. As knowledge increases about how a better diet can prevent future medical problems, so too does the interest in probiotics.We invite you to learn more about our probiotics and the research that supports them.
The World Health Organization defines probiotics as “live micro-organisms which, when administered in sufficient amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”.
