Amytracker™ are optotracers that detect amyloids and other protein aggregates
Amytracker™ allow you to visualize amyloids directly, without using antibodies or any toxic reagents. We developed Amytracker™ to stain amyloid fibrils, and even pre-fibrillar species in tissue sections and working to expand the range of applications. We provide Amytracker™ in a range of different colors to make your amyloid staingings shine!

Staining with Amytracker™ is powerful, fast and simple
SimpleStain and go. No need for complex protocols, additional reagents or secondary antibodies.
FastAmytracker™ help to minimize your assay time.
StableAmytracker™ are thermo- and photo-stable. We recommend storage in the frige, but you can do your assay on the bench at any temperature you like.
SensitiveAmytracker™ are more sensitive than conventional Amyloid stains.
Non-toxicSafe to use for you and your experiments.
VersatileAmytracker™ come in a range of colours. They work with your existing microscope setup.
Amytracker™ for a variety of applications
Our aim is to provide you with Amytracker™ for a variety of applications. We work closely with our partners at research institutions to test our products in the real-life research environment. Our Amytracker™ have been used to stain extracellular amyloid deposits, intracellular inclusion bodies and even aggregates of prion proteins in various species and tissues. With Amytracker™ you will be able to detect early as well as mature plaques. That means you can detect prefirillar species, which cannot be picked-up with the common amyloid dyes. You can detect fully formed protein aggregates with superior intensity. Check out our Science Room for more information.
