CELLIAL Technologies is a company, founded in 2001, located in the North of France, specialised on in vitro studies and characterisations for the CNS. CELLIAL Technologies is a spin-off from an academic research group from the Institut Pasteur de Lille and the Université d’Artois. CELLIAL Technologies has been created by Professor Roméo Cecchelli who is director of the mix laboratory LBHE scientific advisor of the company. Permanent links exist between his academic laboratory and CELLIAL Technologies. In 2003, a collaboration with Pr D. Vivien and Pr A. Buisson who are working in the UMR-Université de Caen / CNRS 6551 (CYCERON, Caen, France) has permitted the creation of a new axis of CELLIAL Technologies based on the development of primary cultures of human cortical astrocytes and neurons. The activities of CELLIAL Technologies, based on in vitro models, are made to optimize and accelerate the industrial research by saving useless expenditures in the pre-clinical and clinical phases. With the quality of its know-how (reproducibility, functional and pure neurons …) CELLIAL Technologies assures the security of its results. So, thanks to its expertise, CELLIAL Technologies is able to optimise the choice of the candidates, as well for the profitability aspect, as for the delay of the discovery phase. The BBB technology of CELLIAL Technologies is based on an efficient in vitro model of the blood-brain barrier. This model has shown a high correlation coefficient between in vitro and in vivo analysis of wide range molecules tested. The in vitro model consists of a coculture of endothelial cells of brain capillaries and glial.
