On a mission to improve CSF-related diagnostics and care

Our research and technology help a growing group of patients affected by disorders in the cerebrospinal fluid dynamics to regain cognitive abilities and stay self sufficient for a longer time in the fall of age. We are mainly addressing diseases related to CSF on the rise in the world’s aging populations.

About Likvor AB

The company is based on almost 40 years of research in the field of assessment of cerebrospinal fluid dynamics. Likvor AB’s products are CE marked and sold to hospitals and clinics with a focus on neurology and neurosurgery. Geriatric wards are also of great interest in the future. The company is certified according to ISO-13485. Likvor AB is located in Umeå, in northern Sweden, and has Swedish owners.

Our business

The main offer is our trademarked CELDA System which includes an advanced instrument, a powerful software supporting the most commonly used methods and a bed custom built for these kinds of investigations. Besides that, the offer also includes consumables since all investigations need a single-use tube set.

We are also committed to explore and develop new methods and devices in close collaboration with researchers at Umeå University and Umeå University Hospital.
