We engineer
and manufacture

platelets.

Inspired by platelet biology to save lives 

HemostOD’s technology platform unlocks the power of platelets in:

Thrombocytopenia

(lead program 1)

Developing universal* platelets for treatment in patients with, or at risk of, HLA immune-refractoriness.

Tissue-targeted cargo delivery

(lead program 2)

Using our unique CAR-PLT® technology for shielded delivery of miRNA/siRNA or proteins to specific target tissues.

Regenerative medicine

Using engineered platelets in wound healing, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating applications.

Culture of therapeutic stem cells

Using platelet lysate produced from our universal platelets to boost cell proliferation.

* engineered to be HLA-null

HemostOD: a swiss-based preclinical company

Founded in 2020, HemostOD is a biotech company based at the EPFL Innovation Park in Lausanne, Switzerland.

 

We are a preclinical stage company developing applications based on our proprietary platform to engineer and manufacture universal platelets.

A unique & scalable 

platelet manufacturing 

platform

Inspired by the physiological generation of platelets in the bone marrow, HemostOD has developed an innovative solution to manufacture engineered platelets, thereby providing a practically unlimited source of universal platelets.
Our unique process integrates: molecular & cell biology techniques to build a stable megakaryocitic cell line (steps 1, 2 & 3), followed by the use of advanced microfluidic technologies in a bioreactor to fragment megakaryocytes into platelets (step 4). This robust and rapid process enables the generation of large quantities of homogeneous and high-quality platelets in a few hours.
Our IP-protected platform includes:

Immortalization of hematopoietic progenitors (stem) cells from a single donor.

Engineering of cells to introduce custom features, modifying the platelet surface and/or content for controlled release.

Differentiation into a practically unlimited source of megakaryocytes, the platelet progenitor cells.

Ex-vivo generation of platelets in a robust, fast and scalable manufacturing process.
