materials for scalable cultured meat production
Available now as a sample or in quantity
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 scaffold is produced with Gelatex’s proprietary nanofiber production technology
We can adjust the parameters such as the fiber size or porosity, make the fibers aligned or randomly oriented and optimize the scaffold according to specific requirements.
The 3D structure created by Gelatex’s proprietary nanofiber technology is the
most similar to the natural ECM
