There hasn’t been innovation in how we are growing meat in 10000 years. Current livestock-based meat production is responsible for:
of Earth’s land
of greenhouse gas emissions
of antibiotics are used for animals
Cell-cultured meat is
a sustainable solution
Gelatex makes high-performance 3D scaffolds and microcarriers for scalable cultured meat mass-production.
Microcarriers are needed to help cells to proliferate in bioreactors while the scaffold supports muscle tissue formation to achieve a structured steak-like meat that looks, feels and tastes like meat
that we are used to.
How is cell-cultured meat made?
2. Cell isolation
4. Muscle tissue formation
5. Cell-cultured meat
Gelatex’s 3D scaffold for cultured meat is produced from high-quality edible and plant-based polymers. It supports cell adhesion and differentiation.
Our scaffold benefits
90% lower costs
Works with many cell lines
Automated scalable production
The 3D structure created by Gelatex’s proprietary nanofiber technology is the
most similar to the natural ECM
