A young German company, founded in 2016, is specialised in the field of antigen recognition.
The founder developed a method for the rapid and reliable characterisation of epitopes at the level of single amino acids and their allowed variations. The method identifies up to thousands of potential epitope/mimotope peptides combining even structural epitopes in single peptides to predict species specificity and fitness for usage. Only µg amounts of antibody are required.
The technique has been applied to identify more than 1,000 epitopes often followed up by synthesis and binding tests with peptides.
The company is looking for partners from R&D or industry for further development under research or technical cooperation agreement.
