We have developed an array of off-the shelf, immortalised and fully characterised cell lines for the cultivated meat industry

cell lines

Reprogrammed primary cells that can differentiate into fat, muscle and almost any tissue type

Myogenic (muscle)
producing cell lines

Immortalised cell lines with rapid differentiation into muscle fibres

Adipogenic (fat)
producing cell lines

Immortalised cell lines with high proliferation rates and efficient differentiation into adipocytes


Academic R&D licences available for researchers, labs and institutions working on foundational cultivated meat research


Commercial R&D licences available for use in enabling technology development including, species specific growth factor potency tests, media and additive testing and bioreactor development


Commercial manufacture licences available for use in developing cultivated meat products for commercialization


We are developing GFP positive versions of all of our cell lines that are tailored for academic research.
