Akadeum Life Sciences, Inc. Recognized for Best New Technology at CYTO Innovation
Date:8/8/2017

Each year, the top minds in cytometry—which refers to the methodology used to extract quantitative information from individual cells—join together at ISAC’s CYTO Innovation to present the industry’s new technologies in the technology showcase. This year, Ann Arbor-based Akadeum Life Science, Inc.’s microbubble technology rose to the top as the clear winner.

The judging panel—comprised of technology experts, as well as industry representatives from leading venture capital, product, and business development firms—awarded Akadeum the CYTO Innovation award for 2017. Akadeum’s technology was chosen for its distinguishing aspects from existing technologies, and its potential impact on science and/or medicine.

“When such an experienced panel acknowledges the value and potential of Akadeum's technology, it is a significant validation of the company’s products," noted Diether Recktenwald, PhD, 2017 Team Leader, ISAC CYTO Innovation Initiative.

Akadeum’s Chief Technology Officer, John Younger, stated, “As the first company to commercialize microbubbles for cell separation, it is an honor to receive this recognition from such a prestigious panel of judges.” The Company’s microbubbles are also capable of separating proteins, nucleic acids, and other targets in biological samples.

By using microbubbles, Akadeum has taken a normally complicated and cumbersome separation workflow and simplified it to where no specific instrumentation is needed. Its innovative technology is also fast and gentle, and allows for the separation process to take place completely within a sample tube. In fact, the entire process works in 10 minutes or less, where target cells are captured and removed. Biological separation is a key enabling step in areas like liquid biopsies for detecting cancer, cell therapy, and pathogen detection.

CYTO Innovation was a highlight of CYTO 2017, ISAC's 32nd Congress of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC), held June 10-14, 2017, in Boston.
