GILUPI GmbH is a medical device company founded in 2006 with focus on the development and production of innovative products for the in vivo isolation of rare cells from the blood circulation. Currently, the main focus of GILUPI is the diagnostics market for cancer.
Individual oncological targeted therapies will become more and more important in tomorrow's personalized medicine. The identification of the right drug for the specific patient is the upcoming challenge. To address this medical need, the application of the GILUPI CellCollector® enriches rare cells (circulating tumor cells - CTCs) by directly "fishing" them in the patient's bloodstream. By using special diagnostic analyses, these isolated cells can be characterized and/or analyzed at a molecular level.
The GILUPI CellCollector® is the first in vivo CTC isolation product worldwide that is CE approved.
