Incella GmbH is a start-up company that developes and commercializes novel gene-delivery systems. Incella is a result of one of our research projects that was finished by Linxian two years ago in cooperation with Gary Davidson´s lab at the KIT. Now, just two years after that project three novel transfection reagents (ScreenFect A, ScreenFect siRNA and ScreenFect mRNA) are available in Europe, Japan, China and soon in the US.Incella GmbHhas moved to theHigh-Tech Inkubatorat the KIT where the company currently rents one chemistry and one cell biology laboratory and employs 8 scientists.

Check our laboratory´syoutube channel. The interviews are kind of funny, but the macro videos of droplets, superhydrophobic surfaces and micropatterns are interesting. High-density arrays of square microdroplets, or unusual ring-shaped droplets are something what we do not often see in our real life.
