The First Off-the-shelf, Co-Culture Platform for Skin Microbiome Research

At Cerillo, we understand that the skin microbiome is a complex and dynamic ecosystem, and exploring it requires innovative tools. That’s why Cerillo recently introduced the industry's first off-the-shelf co-culture research platform to enable scientists to effortlessly conduct microbial interaction studies without the need for custom-built systems.

Co-Culture Research, Simplified in a Single Plate.

From Proof of Concept to Publication, Cerillo’s Co-Culture Platform Has You Covered

Cerillo’s ready-to-use Co-Culture System is designed for real-time phenotypic measurements. Now you can collect data from your individual microbial populations without the need to custom build a solution. Our Co-culture platform is perfect for those lightbulb moments when you need to quickly test your ideas, but also designed to handle heavy-duty experimentation for faster results and in-depth data analysis.

Standardized, Reproducible, Scalable

  • Easily run comprehensive microbial interaction studies
  • Effortlessly observe, study, and measure the growth of individual microbial populations while concurrently monitoring their growth alongside other populations
  • Improve collaboration through standardized co-culture set-up an analysis platform

Presenation Topic:

Introducing Cerillo: flexible, scalable, highly connected tools for studying microbes in any environment. Cerillo collaborates closely with researchers in academic, industry, and government labs, incorporating their feedback to build helpful and intuitive features in our suite of products. The platform is scalable, highly interconnected, affordable, and compatible with other industry standard tools. Using Cerillo’s technology, researchers can conduct large-scale studies of the numerous microbes that constitute various microbiomes. Their tools even enable researchers to study microbes within
consortia, as they exist in nature.

Key Advantages of Cerillo’s Co-Culture System for Skin Microbiome Research:

Mimicking Microbial Interactions

Our Co-Culture Duet System enables the cultivation of multiple microorganisms together, simulating the complex microbial interactions that occur on the skin’s surface and inside the body. This provides insights into how different strains influence each other and the skin environment.

Targeted Strain Selection:

Isolation of Beneficial Strains: Co-culture plates can be used to identify specific strains that have beneficial effects on the skin microbiome. These strains can then be isolated for further study or leading to a better understanding of how microbial communities impact skin health and disease.

Product Development & Research Innovation

Our research platforms improve the reliability, efficiency, and scalability of experiments, ultimately advancing and expediting your go-to-market timelines for your next skin care product or therapeutic.

High-Throughput Screening:

Accelerate the discovery process with a pre-configured system for faster proofs of concept, validation and replication. This creates a more efficient way to identify beneficial or pathogenic microbial interactions
