Ann Arbor, Michigan, January 12th, 2021 – Akadeum Life Sciences, today announced that it is participating in Biotech Showcase™. Akadeum has achieved a series of recent scientific advancements and commercial successes through strategic collaborations and aggressive applications discovery. Addressing the needs of the ongoing pandemic, newly developed capabilities include nucleic acid extraction from pooled patient samples to improve sensitivity and throughput of existing molecular diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2.
Brandon McNaughton, Akadeum CEO and co-founder, is highlighting how Akadeum’s proprietary microbubbles are impacting the continuum of human health science by benefiting processes from research to diagnostics and therapeutics.
Target isolation of cells, nucleic acids, proteins, and other biomolecules is essential to biotech workflows. Today, this critical step of isolation is hampered by harsh, ineffective, and unnecessarily complex sample preparation. Akadeum’s microbubble technology enables a quantum leap in process capabilities. Simple, fast, automatable, and inexpensive—the microbubble protocols use inherent buoyancy to engage and isolate biological targets in a gentle manner, permitting high throughput and large-scale processes in cell therapy, liquid biopsy, and research.
“Given Akadeum’s strong results in 2020, we are looking forward to Biotech Showcase as we expand our Partnerships, grow commercialization efforts, and invest in advanced automation offerings,” said McNaughton.
Biotech Showcase, produced by Demy-Colton and EBD Group, is an investor conference focused on driving advances in therapeutic development by providing a sophisticated networking platform for executives and investors that fosters investment and partnership opportunities. The conference takes place each year during the course of one of the industry's largest gatherings and busiest weeks.
“We are delighted that Akadeum will be presenting at Biotech Showcase this year,” said Sara Demy, CEO of Demy-Colton. “Biotech Showcase is a prime occasion for life science entrepreneurs and investors to come together to discover the potential of innovative technologies that will drive the future of drug discovery.”
