Roslin Cells Ltd was formed as a spin out from the Roslin Institute in 2006. By 2013 the company had been awarded both its HTA and MHRA licences, allowing for the production of ATMP’s in the custom built GMP Facilities.  During this time, the company positioned itself as a pioneer in hESC derivation, differentiation and characterisation and became the first European company to successfully establish a GMP grade hESC line. The company also aided in the establishment of the first European cell bank for induced pluripotent stem cells (EBiSC).

In 2015, in order to focus exclusively on delivery of its GMP contract manufacturing services, Roslin Cell Therapies Ltd was formed (now trading as RoslinCT). RoslinCT is an established leader and a reliable partner for the development, optimization, scale-up and GMP manufacture of cell-based therapeutic products. RoslinCT has successfully released a range of GMP products from cell banks to drug products for clinical use.
