Red blood cells are

immune cells

Welcome to Sangui Bio
Sangui Bio’s discoveries are changing our understanding of immunology
Red blood cells are the most abundant cell type in humans and the conventional view is that they are highly specialised cells that only function in the transport of gas. However, data from our research demonstrates that this perspective is now outdated.

About Us

Founded in 2015, Sangui Bio is a Sydney-based life sciences company aiming to revolutionise how blood is analysed and used in medicine by shifting the focus to red blood cells (RBCs). We are creating powerful investigatory tools for a range of inflammatory conditions with an initial focus on cancer. 


Our Discoveries

Cytokines are small, secreted signalling proteins, that act locally and systemically on a variety of cells. Cytokines regulate inflammation and the immune response. Due to their wide pro- and anti-inflammatory effects, cytokines have been implicated in most disease processes.

However, very low cytokine concentrations in plasma means that they are difficult to use as diagnostic tools.


Sangui Bio’s breakthrough discovery enables significantly more data to be obtained from a single blood sample and is already changing how clinical groups study biomarkers.
