Your partner for the development of new technologies
The Fraunhofer EMB combines scientific know-how with industry related research in the field of life sciences. We develop new technologies, processes and devices for cell isolation, cell handling and cell analysis. The core competences of our institution are cell and tissue culture methods of diverse vertebrates from fish to humans. With the “Cryo-Brehm” we maintain one of the biggest archives for cell cultures from vertebrates worldwide. The innovative cell technologies are deployed in diagnosis & prevention, medicine and cosmetics. Moreover, we work on possibilities to exploit aquatic natural resources for food engineering and we are equipped with large-scale technological aquaculture facilities in which marine organisms are cultivated.
