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.


We are revolutionizing cell culture

We offer an extensive portfolio of chemically defined and animal origin-free cell culture reagents for a variety of applications, including a reliable expansion of pluripotent cells and differentiation and maintenance of specialized cell types, such as hepatocytes, skeletal muscle cells, and various neural cells. We are known and recognized for our premium products, competence, dedication, and service and position ourselves as being at the forefront of cell culture. Our high technology products contribute to our customer’s efficiency and scientific breakthroughs and enable them to start a new era in medical research. BioLamina’s Biolaminins™ is the only original full length, human, recombinant laminin cell culture substrates on the market and the impact of our Biolaminin matrices on cell culture quality has been scientifically validated in many high-impact journals.

BioLamina and Cellaria will collaborate to make accurate cell models for drug screening

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.

Utmanar CAR T

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.
