Vascudyne Inc., a University of Minnesota start-up company, is on a mission to become the world’s leading center of excellence and commercial manufacturer of an innovative in-vitro grown extracellular matrix. We provide this unique 100% biological ECM material to our clients while also developing state of the art devices based on this promising technology.

Vascudyne’s technology is based on discoveries by University researcher Robert Tranquillo, Ph.D., professor in the departments of Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering & Materials Science in the College of Science and Engineering, and his team.

The Vascudyne’s decellularized collagenous tissue is grown in a simple bioreactor from human dermal fibroblasts in fibrin gel. The resulting tissue has biological and mechanical properties very similar to native tissue which passively recelluralizes and remodels without immunogenic reactions. This completely biological, off-the-shelf biomimetic material has the potential to move medical device technologies beyond the supply, durability, and hemocompatibility limitations of current synthetic and native tissue options.
