Company profile

attyloid is a spin-off from Forschungszentrum Jülich and Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf. attyloid offers its proprietary sFIDA platform technology for the ultrasensitive quantitation of protein particles. The ISO9001:2015-embedded sFIDA technology is fully automized and scalable. Building on a strong scientific expertise in protein misfolding and aggregation, we focus our business model on aggregate quantitation for development and QC of biologicals. attyloid offers sFIDA to pharmaceutical and biotech companies.

sFIDA Technology

sFIDA stands for surface-based fluorescence intensity distribution analysis. The assay uses a combination of aggregate-binding antibodies and fluorescence microscopy imaging. First, protein aggregates are captured from the sample and fixed to a glass sur- face. After unbound sample components are removed, detection antibodies labeled with two fluorescent dyes are added. A laser focus scans the surface and the highly decorated aggregates show bursts of fluorescent light in two color channels.

The assay is currently in the process of validation and optimization for the demands of high-throughput measurements. MORE

Founders and Idea

Since 2014 our project has been supported by the VIP-Program of the German Federal Ministry of Education. In 2016 we obtained funding by the Helmholtz Enterprise Program and by Start-up NRW to commericalize the sFIDA technolgy as a spin-off company.

attyloid draws on a strong team of founders with expertise in Life Science, Health Care and Corporate Development.
