At Platome Biotechnology we provide scientists with high-quality solutions to grow cells and tissues in the laboratory without the use of animal-derived serum. The products we have to offer, called platelet lysates, are free of animal components and are made from clinically approved material. They can be used directly to grow cells and are more suitable than currently used techniques with animal serum. By using platelet lysates for their stem cells, scientists safe time, effort and increase the quality of their research.
Platome is a startup company in biotechnology founded by Dr. Ólafur Eysteinn Sigurjónsson and Mrs. Sandra Mjöll Jónsdóttir-Buch. We have worked together as a team since 2011 and cooperated closely in science, resulting in published scientific findings, awards and numerous academic students. We have learned to work together and have come to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses through trust and honesty. We are passionate about what we do and see ourselves as an effective team with skill sets that complement each other.
