Deliver Your Therapies How, Where and When They’re Most Effective
Much like drugs are delivered in tablets, capsules, or slow-release formulations, Likarda has patented formulation technologies for all kinds of cell therapies. Our library of hydrogels can be customized to ﬁt the speciﬁc needs of each of your cell therapies.
Powerful Therapy Protection Backed by Strong Science
The scientiﬁc team at Likarda has published extensively over the years and the most relevant are available here.
Live Cell Encapsulation Using Core-Shell Spheriﬁcation (CSS)
The only platform that enables customized delivery systems to optimize cell function
CSS enables the use of any cross linkable hydrogel providing a plethora of customizable options
Ensures cellular therapies get to, and stay, where they can be most effective
CSS overcomes a major challenge for cell therapies by keeping them at the target location
Cell therapies are shielded from the body’s natural defense mechanisms
CSS utllizes stealth materials designed with the immune system in mind
Improve the Effectiveness of Your Cellular Therapies
We have developed a completely new method (Core-Shell Spherification) to use superior hydrogels with much slower gelation rates compared to alginate, enabling the production of microspheres with a variety of chemical, physical, and bioactive properties.
50+ Different Formulations
There is a plethora of materials that can be used to microencapsulate cells, especially in the hydrogel category, including hyaluronic acid, polyvinyl alcohol, or polyethylene glycol. Many have characteristics similar to extracellular matrix. Others are abundant and inexpensive. These enable tailored options for each cell therapy that only we are able to deliver.
