Amytracker Webinar on November 25th

Amytracker Webinar on November 25th

Do you want to learn more about the applications of the Amytracker molecules in research?

Our guest for this webinar is distinguished Professor Resia Pretorius from Stellenbosch University in South Africa. Her presentation “Consequences of coagulation in health and disease: The use of fluorescent markers”, will detail Prof. Pretorius’ research using the Amytracker molecules. The webinar will pull from Prof. Pretorius’ earlier research with fibrin amyloid formation and her current pioneering work with microclots in Long Covid patients. More information about Prof. Pretorius can be found here.

EbbaBiolight Webinar on Sept. 30th

EbbaBiolight Webinar on Sept. 30th

Do you want to learn more about labelling Staphylococci with optotracer molecules?

On Sept. 30th 2021 we will hold our first webinar. The webinar is part of a webinar series that we plan to hold every month with focus on EbbaBiolight, Amytracker or Carbotrace.

Our first speaker is Karen Butina, PhD who has performed her thesis work at the Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center at Karolinska Institute under supervision of Prof. Richter-Dahlfors.

Dr. Butina will present her research about labelling Staphylococci using optotracer molecules. You can read more about Dr. Butinas work here.

About Ebba Biotech and the Optotracer technology

About Ebba Biotech and the Optotracer technology

With optotracing – using fluorescent tracer molecules – Ebba Biotech provides an innovative method for expanding areas of research. We proudly serve clinical, academic and industrial research laboratories worldwide. Use our optotracer products as tool to search and detect.

Ebba Biotech was founded in 2015 as a biotech start-up within Medeon (Science Park for Life Science in Malmö, Sweden) by professor Agneta Richter-Dahlfors to enable more widespread and commercial use of fluorescent tracer molecules, a result of many years of cutting-edge nanoscience and organic chemistry research.

The optotracing technology – using fluorescent tracer molecules that bind to and mark substances in samples – has been developed by a scientific expert team of researchers at Karolinska Institutet and Linköping University in Sweden.



Our Stockholm branch is moving

Our Stockholm branch is moving

We will be relocating our Stockholm (Solna) branch on January 1st. The move will be short - less than 500 m - to a new location within Karolinska Institutet Science Park. Our street address changes from Fogdevreten 2 to Nobels väg 16. Postcode and phone numbers remain the same. Due to our move some delays in delivery can occur from Friday December 18th until Friday January 8th. Please allow up to 10 working days from placing an order to delivery (our normal turn-around time is 2-5 working days)

During this autumn we have updated our website to include more practical information on how to use our Optotracers in general and specifically Carbotrace, EbbaBiolight and Amytracker with relevant publications, protocols and videos.



Carbotrace - expansion of our product range

Carbotrace - expansion of our product range

Carbotrace is our Optotracer (fluorescent tracer molecule) designed to target carbohydrate structures. We are proud to present our expansion of the Carbotrace series to include five wavelength variants and a Mix&Try kit.



Ebba Biotech launches new optotracer series - EbbaBiolight

Ebba Biotech launches new optotracer series - EbbaBiolight

“My passion has always been to make our nanoscience and organic chemistry research available to a wider audience. Finally, after spending years on research and development, we are ready and able to launch the full wavelength range of our fluorescent tracer (optotracer) molecule for probing and detecting bacterial biofilm under its new name EbbaBiolight. says founder and chairman of Ebba Biotech AB, Professor Agneta Richter-Dahlfors.

The EbbaBiolight product series consists of five fluorescent tracer (optotracer) molecules: EbbaBiolight 480, EbbaBiolight 520, EbbaBiolight 540, EbbaBiolight 630 and EbbaBiolight 680. All variants are available to order in two volumes: 50 µl and 100 µl. We also offer the EbbaBiolight Mix&Try kit which contains the complete product series (five optotracer molecules) in volume of 10 µl each.

"With exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratio and spectral properties that are clearly distinguishable from biological autofluorescence, we especially recommend EbbaBiolight 680 for tracking of biofilm in live cultures.” says professor Agneta Richter-Dahlfors.

EbbaBiolight 680 has formerly been known under the commercial name ECtracer 680.



New Amytracker 540 and Amytracker Mix&Try

New Amytracker 540 and Amytracker Mix&Try

In the Amytracker product series we have - since a few years back - been producing and selling four Amytracker products and we are now proud to be able to launch a fifth one: Amytracker 540 - a green/yellow fluorescent tracer molecule for staining of amyloids and other protein aggregates. With excellent cellular uptake properties, we particularly recommend Amytracker 540 for live-cell imaging and in vivo studies. Amytracker 540 is available as ex vivo variant in two volumes: 50 µl and 100 µl (delivered as 2x50 µl). Please contact us for custom options and to request a quote for our in vivo products. Amytracker 540 will be included in our new Amytracker Mix&Try kit which contains the complete Amytracker product series with five different fluorescent tracers.

ADAM6 conference and LCO workshop in Linköping

ADAM6 conference and LCO workshop in Linköping
The 6th Amyloid Disease Annual Meeting was organized at Vildmarkshotellet in Kolmården wildlife park in September 2017. Ebba Biotech was one of the proud sponsors of the event. Two days prior to the meeting, an LCO workshop was held at Linköpings University. Theoretical and practical courses about LCO staining and fluorescence microscopy were included in the program. The participants had the opportunity to test Amytracker™ products as well as other LCO molecules. Thanks to Zeiss who provided their new LSM 880 with Airyscan technology during the workshop, participants were able to take some amazing pictures of their samples.
