Collagen Solutions is headquartered in Glasgow and has commercial offices in Seoul, South Korea and Minneapolis, USA, as well as R&D and distribution services in San Jose, California. The Company is at the forefront of innovation in collagen production, as well as being intrinsically involved with the customer R&D and academic research in San Jose. Collagen’s products are used in a wide variety of applications including orthopaedics, cardiovascular, dental, plastic surgery, wound healing, neurology and urology.

In September 2016, the Group was invited to join a second Horizon 2020 grant funded research programme, related to cell-based tissue regeneration techniques. The project is expected to begin in 2017 and will run for approximately five years, with the Company receiving around €500,000 of funding.

The most recent investment by Calculus will help accelerate growth and fund a new business strategy of proprietary product development.
