AcouSort is a biotech company providing solutions for automated sample preparations involving biological cells or other organelles. The company is based on commercializing the research within acoustophoresis from the world renowned group of professor Thomas Laurell at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Lund University, Sweden.

The technology of acoustophoresis is based on using ultrasound to isolate, separate or trap microscopic particles such as blood cells, bacteria or microvesicles in microfluidic channels. So, the use of acoustic forces for cell manipulation is commonly termed acoustophoresis (migration by means of acoustic forces).

AcouSort develops proprietary bioanalytical and clinical applications based on acoustophoresis. AcouSort also covers custom-developed acoustophoresis applications.
