We are driven by a passion to solve scientific challenges and to realize cell therapy
BioLamina is a Swedish biotechnology company with a global presence, built on a scientific foundation, with a legacy in matrix biology and cell culture-based research. Our headquarters is based in Sunbyberg, Stockholm, with production, R&D, logistics, sales, and marketing all under the same roof. The company was established in 2009 and was co-founded by Dr. Karl Tryggvason and his son Dr. Kristian Tryggvason.
The highly educated, international team at BioLamina is characterized by scientific curiosity and the desire to contribute to the stem cell community. Personal responsibility and accountability are foundations of our company, as is a high level of collaboration, both within the company and with our partners.
Though our team is highly diversified and international, we uphold the Swedish standards of equity and partnership in the way we develop both products and collaborations. We like to do things together, as equals. This means that creativity and innovation always trump hierarchy and norm and that we celebrate joint effort over the internal competition.

One of the biggest challenges in drug development is the low success rate in development of drug candidates. This can be improved by development of tissue specific cellular models, with improved biological relevance in early drug development. A tissue is composed of both cells and extracellular proteins like the laminins and the intention of this partnership is to use the extracellular proteins and BioSilk from BioLamina to mimic the cell microenvironment and Cellarias iPSC reprogramming and disease model cells to make biologically relevant and accurate cell models for drug screening. These models could significantly decrease the cost of drug development.

BioLamina is in an expansive phase with significant business opportunities globally. During the past decade, our flagship products, human recombinant laminin proteins (Biolaminins) have become renowned cell culture substrates in both basic research as well as for companies within regenerative medicine. To meet the growing demand and to further expand the business globally, BioLamina has recruited Dusan Raicevic as a new sales manager. He comes most recently from a position as Sales and Business Development Director Nordics and Northern Germany for Metabolon. Dusan’s previous experiences also include working with Fermentas (now Thermo), Boule Medical, and Corning Life Sciences.

Svenska Biolamina ska utveckla metoder för tillverkning av NK-celler. "Orsakar inte någon immunreaktion".
Life Science Sweden, November 7, 2018
BioLamina and partners aim to develop new methods to differentiate unlimited amounts of NK-cells to fight cancer
Together with Rheincell Therapeutics and the University Clinic in Düsseldorf (Universitätsklinikum Düsseldorf), over the next two years, BioLamina will develop methods to differentiate NK cells supported by a grant of 12 MSEK from Swedish Vinnova and German ZIM. BioLamina’s expertise with laminin technologies will be used to differentiate stem cells into NK-cells, which are then further manipulated to form CAR-NKs. The CAR-NKs are predicted to be safer to patients, and potentially even more efficient in treating some forms of cancer than the current “star” of the proverbial cell therapy sky, the CAR-T cell. CAR-T cells have significantly increased the prognosis for cancer patients, with two approved therapies in Europe alone. With success, the stem cell-derived CAR-NKs borne of this collaborative effort could prove to be another game-changer in the field of cancer therapeutics.

BIOLAMINA announces an OEM partnership with CELLINK for the development of biologically relevant bioink products for bioprinting
During recent years, 3D-Bioprinting has emerged as a powerful cell culture technology but has also been hampered by the lack of a biologically relevant Bioink. Today, CELLINK launches a brand new Bioink containing BIOLAMININS, that will enable scientists to combine the unique properties of the laminin protein with culturing cells in a 3D-environment. This approach will advance the 3D-Bioprinting technology since the biological effect of the laminin protein will improve the structure and biochemical features, creating a microenvironment more authentic to the in vivo setting.
