Ncardia innovative hiPSC-based products and services for drug discovery & development
Ncardia was formed in August 2017 following the merger of Pluriomics and Axiogenesis.
Axiogenesis AG was founded in 2001 as a spin-off of the University of Cologne by Dr. Heribert Bohlen, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Hescheler, and Prof. Dr. Bernd Fleischmann. Pluriomics was founded in 2011 by Stefan Braam and Herman Spolders, together with the scientific founders Prof. Dr. Mummery and Prof. Dr. Passier.
At the moment of the merger both companies were leading providers in human cardiovascular stem cell technology, disease modeling and cell-based assay products and services for cardiovascular drug discovery. The combination of the companies brought the best of both organizations together – the people, products, services, industry knowledge and expertise to develop and generate more innovative stem cell based products and services to serve our customers at an even higher level than before.
