LIBA-leucocyte isolation based on acoustophoresis

Reference number
Coordinator Lunds universitet - Institutionen för elektrisk mätteknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 829 000
Project duration January 2014 - August 2015
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The purpose was to develop a novel type of apheresis machine based on acoustophoresis, to more efficiently than previously be able to separate red and white blood cells. A protocol and a prototype have been completed.

Results and expected effects

We see a significant part of the market for our technology, within bioanalytical, biomedical and clinical diagnostics. The results are currently being considered for patent filing. The instrument prototype developed by AcouSort AB will serve as the basis for developing a first product line for white blood cell purification from blood.

Approach and implementation

The work has progressed well, and the three consortium members have collaborated well. Lund University contributed by measuring cell properties and by developing the separation protocol. Acousort AB contributed by developing the prototype, theoretical calculations of suitable buffer systems, and by giving advice on cell property measurements and technology development. Skåne University Hospital has provided clinical samples and feedback about clinical needs.
