Success stories

MOOW RUMEN BOLUS – pH measuring cow rumen sonda

This revolutionary solution has been created by Cubilog LTd.. Moow farm Ltd. and the University of Pécs Chemistry Institute. It can measure the acid and the pH value of cow rumen constantly and reliably.

Humeltis Ltd. 3D lung tissue

Humeltis Ltd. is a currently founded biotech spin-off company, which can study biological processes and the development and progression of diseases in a distal lung. With this innovative and patented technology of the University of Pécs they can provide 3D lung tissue for pharmaceutical and biotechnological developments and they can support their academic partners developing materials which can be applied in human therapy.

Humeltis was founded by Prof. Judit Pongrácz (leader of Szentágothai Research Centre Wnt Signal Transmission Research Group) sign together with Biggeorges-NV Equity/X-Ventures, a venture fund and the two parties are the major shareholders.

Vision of the company

At Humeltis we believe that using three dimensional models of lung tissues will lead to in-depth understanding of pulmonary diseases, drug responses, ageing and lung tissue regeneration processes. This knowledge will aid the development of personalised diagnostics and therapies saving the lives of millions of people every year.

And there is an added bonus: we only use HUMAN cells – NO animal studies!

The 3D lung tissues Humeltis has developed offer a much better depiction of the human lung microenvironment and responsiveness to stimuli. The conclusions, which could be drawn from experiments using our models are as close to reality as science currently allows it to be.

Two dimensional (2D) cell line experiments are an oversimplification of the real world, no wonder that results of such studies show little or no correlation with clinical studies conducted in three dimensional (3D) humans.
