Alzheimer’s Diagnostics and More: New Spin-Off "attyloid"
Jülich/Düsseldorf, 7 March 2018 – A new company named "attyloid GmbH" was founded as a spin-off by Forschungszentrum Jülich and Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) a few days ago. The researchers involved have developed a method of measuring tiny protein aggregates with unprecedented sensitivity. The technology, called “sFIDA”, can be used for the early detection of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, for example. It is also suitable for the quality control of biopharmaceuticals such as enzymes and antibodies.
