Precision medicine made affordable
Limula is a Biopôle-Based start-up that has set itself the task of helping personalized cancer therapy achieve a breakthrough. Limula focuses on CAR-T cell therapy, in which the patient’s immune cells are genetically modified to recognize and fight cancer cells. In this process, the patient’s own immune cells are removed, processed in the laboratory and reintroduced via an infusion. The company’s patented technology is composed of a self-contained manufacturing unit and single-use kits, allowing healthcare providers to safely manufacture CGT in a decentralised fashion, directly at the hospital and at a lower cost.
