Revolutionary Swedish invention can potentially improve drug development
Attana AB introduces the Attana Cell 200 – the first system to permit real-time kinetic analysis of
molecular interactions directly on cell surfaces, bringing drug development a step closer to the body.
As the first company in the world, Attana launches a system measuring molecular interactions label free
directly on cell surfaces. In line with Attana’s innovative strategy, the Attana Cell 200 is a revolutionary
system that rapidly generates biologically relevant information on molecular interactions with cell
surfaces. Thanks to groundbreaking innovations and sedulous developments, Attana is the only player
on the market that offers cells integrated as sensor surface. The experiments mimic real life conditions
and generate information with higher biological relevance in comparison with traditional synthetic
Drug development is financially risky and time consuming. To save money and time the industry needs
to early identify and eliminate unsuitable candidates. Attana Cell 200 biosensor system improves the
selection process by rapidly identifying promising drug candidates. This enables early and well informed
decisions in selecting relevant candidates while reducing unnecessary development costs and saving
time. The Attana Cell 200 is label free, can run unpurified candidate molecules and has high throughput,
resulting in fast and efficient screening of many drug candidates.
Attana Cell 200 is launched with new applications such as kinetic evaluation of cellular biomolecular
interactions, e.g. antibody-receptor and lectin-carbohydrate, competition assays and cell capturing.
