Over 20 Years of R&D at Lund University
AcouSort’s core technology has been researched and developed for over 20 years at Lund University in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, research headed by Professor Thomas Laurell. As the technology matured, its capabilities generated significant interest from life science companies.
In December 2010, AcouSort was founded in order to commercialize the research. The founders were professor Laurell together with three other Lund University professors: Hans Lilja (clinical chemistry), Patrik Brundin (neuroscience) and Stefan Scheding (hematology).
Initially, AcouSort’s activities were limited to conducting feasibility studies in collaboration with life-science companies. Eventually, the company developed its own benchtop instruments, AcouTrap and AcouWash, to facilitate research and application development.
In 2014, CEO Dr. Torsten Freltoft joined AcouSort, representing a strong commercial focus. He has led the development of the company’s current business strategy, focusing on developing OEM solutions for the healthcare market.
