About Tantti

     Tantti Laboratory Inc. (“Tantti”) was founded in 2014 by eight distinguished professors in Taiwan with expertise in Chemical and Materials Engineering. Since its inception, the company has developed two platform technologies (Tantti® Monolith and Tantti® BioScaffolds) which use microfluidics and in-mold polymerization to create highly ordered micro- and nano-porous biomaterials.

 

▪Tantti® Monolith represents a breakthrough in liquid chromatographic column technology used in the separation and purification of biological products, including proteins, antibodies, exosomes, and viral vectors. Its applications include the production of vaccines, biologic therapies, antibodies, etc.

 

▪Tantti® BioScaffolds, which includes our UniTantrix™ Microcarriers and 3D BioScaffold product lines, is our platform solution for the biomedical industry’s growing need for high-density cell production used in vaccine/viral particle production, cell therapy, tissue engineering,  regenerative medicine, and high-throughput/content drug screening, among other applications.

 

    Our technologies have received patent approvals around the world, including in the United States, Europe, Japan, Taiwan and China, and we continue to conduct extensive R&D in-house as well as with our academic and corporate research  partners.

 

   At Tantti, our mission is not only to develop innovative biomaterial technologies that provide the highest performing, cost- and time-effective solutions for our customers.  We also aim to become a collaborative partner with our customers, assisting them in realizing their visions of developing innovative biologic therapies, whether it is in a small-scale research setting or at the commercial production stage.  We distribute our products around the world, both directly to customers and through our distribution partners.

 

 Ultimately, we hope our commitment to innovation, quality, and service will drive Tantti’s long-term sustainable growth in the biomaterials industry.  Together with our partners, we strive to become a world-class, global biomaterials company and we sincerely welcome you to collaborate with us, whether as a customer, distributor, research partner, employee or as an investor/shareholder.
