Dr. Jurinke holds a diploma in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Hamburg and a doctoral degree in Biochemistry also from the University of Hamburg.
“I am excited and honored to be part of GILUPI a leading company in the field of cancer cell isolation. With the approval of the GILUPI CellCollector® by the European and Chinese authorities we have a strong foundation to build on,” said Dr. Jurinke. “Together with the great and passionate team here at GILUPI we will further extend this platform and develop and commercialize clinically relevant downstream applications for the benefit of cancer patients.”
GILUPI GmbH is a medical device company founded in 2006 with focus on the development and production of innovative products for the in vivo isolation of rare cells from the blood circulation. Currently, the main focus of GILUPI is the diagnostics market for cancer.
Individual oncological targeted therapies will become more and more important in tomorrow’s personalized medicine. The identification of the right drug for the specific patient is the upcoming challenge. To address this medical need, the application of the GILUPI CellCollector® enriches rare cells (circulating tumor cells – CTCs) by directly “fishing” them in the patient’s bloodstream. By using special diagnostic analyses, these isolated cells can be characterized and/or analyzed at a molecular level.
The GILUPI CellCollector® is the first in vivo CTC isolation product worldwide that is CE and CFDA approved.
