Optotracing is an innovative visualization method developed by scientists for scientists ideal to use in fluorescence microscopy. With optotracing – using fluorescent tracer molecules – Ebba Biotech provides an innovative method for several expanding areas of research. The optotracing technology has been developed by a scientific expert team of researchers at Karolinska Institutet, Linköping University and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden and is a result of many years of cutting-edge nanoscience and organic chemistry research.
Ebba Biotech has commercialized distribution and sales of fluorescent tracer molecules and today supply these in three different series:
- EbbaBiolight – to probe and detect bacteria & biofilm
- Carbotrace – for detection of cellulose and anatomical mapping of plants to understand their composition
- Amytracker – to search and detect amyloids and other protein aggregates
The video clip below illustrates why our current model of Take, Make, Dispose is draining our planet of natural resources and why circular economy and renewable resources are the answer. Learn how Optotracers can be used to identify renewable resources in plant biomass and support circular economy in the food & beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industry.
