Swedish enterprise “CELLINK” will pay 30.25 million euros for the University of Freiburg spin-off „cytena“

The idea of developing a laboratory instrument that handles and sorts individual, viable cells has been realized by researchers in the Laboratory for MEMS Applications in the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) at the University of Freiburg. Together with economist Benjamin Steimle and IMTEK academic senior advisor Dr. Peter Koltay, the Department’s former doctoral students Dr. Jonas Schöndube and Dr. André Groß founded the company “cytena GmbH” in 2014. They have produced a laboratory device that isolates, sorts and dispenses individual human cells or bacteria – similar to an inkjet printer.
