Taking amazing strides together, landing two deals for Ziccum

It is truly fantastic to now deliver great results in our key areas, having sorted and structured the company business model and operations during a build-up period. Now we are pleased to enter the next phase, delivering key milestone achievements for our valuable platform technology.  Getting two agreements signed with world-leading players is indeed clear confirmation that we are on the right path.

Signing up with a world leader in mRNA/LNP

Our progress is generating very good industry interest for the possibilities of our technology, and we are pursuing numerous dialogues with high calibre industry players, across the industry and in many geographies. It was with great pleasure we could communicate on May 9th that one first paid Feasibility study is agreed and signed. It is a very significant commercial milestone of course, for Ziccum to become revenue generating as of now. The project is running at full activity currently, and it is fantastic to work closely with such a successful and knowledgeable partner. 


Just after the quarter closing, we could add a second, larger project collaboration being signed – now with a major global Pharmaceutical company. This time, the scope is both a paid Feasibility study with partner mRNA/LNP material, and a planned extension for stability testing and an option to license the LaminarPace technology.


Not only are these projects generating revenue and extending our financial runway, but also generating further knowledge and understanding of success factors for the mRNA field, and long term, giving business potential for future licensing if successful. We are delighted to collaborate with these leading players in the field.

Portfolio overview

The Ziccum pipeline of external projects is depicted in a portfolio overview. This gives a general representation of the key steps towards the desired commercialization by entering into license agreements, licensing the LaminarPace technology for specific applications, and the current status of each project. The actual progress in a specific project may proceed via alternative or additional steps, and the timeline varies greatly depending on the resulting read-outs and the counterpart preferences.

Pharmaceutical development in general is subject to very strict confidentiality, and certain collaborations are given without partner name publication, until name disclosure is possible.

The company also pursues earlier dialogues with other counterparts in on-going business development efforts.

Ziccum in brief

Ziccum is developing LaminarPace, a unique ambient drying method for biopharmaceuticals and vaccines based on mass transfer, not heat transfer. The technology is offered by licensing to vaccine and biologics developers and manufacturers in the global pharmaceutical industry.

By reducing drying stress to the active ingredient, LaminarPace uniquely enables particle-engineered, thermostable dry powder biopharmaceuticals which can be easily handled and transported and are highly suitable for novel administration routes. The technology has been successfully applied to mRNA, peptides, proteins, antibodies, lipids and enzymes as well as excipients and adjuvants, and is well suited for industrial application.
