About Swedish Biomimetics 3000® Ltd (SB3000 Ltd)
SB3000 Ltd was founded by Lars-Uno Larsson; serial entrepreneur and recipient of The Honoree Award for Visionary and Pioneering Guidance in the Orphan Drug area. Over the last few years SB3000 Ltd has developed a ground breaking solid phase continuous manufacturing synthesis solution, named µLOT®, aimed at replacing the expensive and environmentally damaging batch processing, which currently is being widely used in manufacturing medicinal products. The Company is initially focusing on the continuous manufacture of peptides, as the present batch process is highly toxic, expensive, can be of variable quality and is inflexible.
