Turning Natural Variation into Product Innovation and Sustainable Growth

Fibriant leverages its expertise in fibrinogen technology to develop innovative healthcare solutions based on specific, naturally occurring, variants of human fibrinogen. Human fibrinogen plays a pivotal role in blood clotting, tissue repair and host defense against pathogens. The company has developed a pilot manufacturing process for recombinant production of different fibrinogen variants and has demonstrated pre-clinical proof of concept for specific fibrinogen variants as topical hemostat and as anti-virulence factor in staphylococcus aureus infections. Fibriant executes a hybrid business model focused on sustainable growth and is led by a team with extensive scientific, product development and business experience.
