Preserving samples for future research

Kallaid wants to address issues in current sample handling standards in Biobanks. We are developing a new sample handling process for fluid biosamples. Our solution will protect sample integrity throughout the biobanking processes, thereby supporting research in the fight against resilient diseases.


Our business idea is to solve these problems by creating a new way to handle blood samples in biobanks that will eliminate the needs for both repeated freeze-thawing and repetitive division into smaller samples.

Pick sample from freezer.

Extracting and unfreezing only the required amount.

Analyze the sample.


The team behind Kallaid is diverse and has a broad knowledge base to draw from. With both technical expertise and business development experience, the team is well equipped to develop the best solutions to support future research
