ROKEPIE® makes it possible to preserve cells and tissues at low temperatures (2-8 ° C). Sulfateq wants to develop ROKEPIE further into a product for clinical applications and more specifically a preservation solution for multiple applications. To make our plans possible we receive financial support from the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union.
Lately there is a lot of happening at Sulfateq which is very positive for the development of ROKEPIE. Besides our new website there are also multiple publications and papers which have been published or will be published in the near future. What’s even greater is that all of these publications show the strength of ROKEPIE and Read More

And, according to project manager Stephan Ulamec of the European Space Agency, she is doing very well. It looks like the hibernation period has not severely damaged Philae. That’s great news, but we from Sulfateq/ROKEPIE® are not Read More
Cells and tissues can be stored and transported in various ways, using methods like cryogenic preservation or hypothermic preservation. Cryogenic preservation is a known and well described technique to freeze biological material with cryoprotective agents at -80 to -196 °C. Hypothermic preservation, storage at 4 to 10 °C, is less familiar and described, but very Read More
Just a few weeks ago we published a blogpost about our experiment: Easy transportation of fresh cell suspensions at 2–8°C. We had performed this experiment to find out which low-cost and easy method could be effective for transporting fresh cell suspensions with added ROKEPIE®. Simple method works perfectly – watch our new video We found out that Read More
