Ebba Biotech welcomes you to listen to Prof. Resia Pretorius present her research findings using the Amytracker molecules. Her presentation titled “Consequences of coagulation in health and disease: The use of fluorescent markers” will detail past work with the Amytracker molecules within her group and her new exciting work with Long Covid patients.
DISCLAIMER: Prof. Pretorius presentation is purely research based and for informational purposes only. This presentation contains no clinical advice for patients. If you have any health issues please contact your healthcare providers.
On the first of June 2021, Ferdinand Choong, Ebba Biotech's co-founder, and Assistant Professor at Karolinska Institutet and AIMES (Center for the Advancement of Integrated Medical and Engineering), presented his research using Ebba Biotech's optotracers at the digital event Lab & Diagnostics of the Future 2021, held by Life Science Sweden.
At this event, Ferdinand spoke about Ebba Biotech's optotracers multifunctional tracer for disease research and diagnostics. He explains the technical concept in large and Ebba Biotech's three product series,
Amytracker - used to detect amyloids and other protein aggregates,
Ebba Biolight - used to detect bacteria and biofilm,
Carbotrace - used for mapping composition of biobased material.
At AIMES, Ferdinand is applying optotracing to improve research and diagnostics of infection, where bacterial infection has a significant role, and biofilm might be the key reason why bacterial infection exists, which he describes in more detail.
A paper in the scientific video journal Jove (Nyström et al. (2017) Jove 128, 1–7) describes the application of Amytracker-like Molecules in combination with fluorescence microscopy techniques for detection and exploration of protein aggregates.
Peter Nilson has been elected as future research leader from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF). His work about the development of multifunctional tools for diagnosis and therapy has led to the development of our Amytracker molecules.
