Kidney function biomarker
Proenkephalin A 119-159 (penKid)
The limitations of the current standard of care diagnostics for acute kidney injury are well known, thus is the need to implement new biomarkers to assist better management of acute kidney injury. Timely information on kidney function is crucial to early initiate and adapt renal replacement therapy and nephro-protective strategies
Headquarter in Hennigsdorf, Germany
SphingoTec is a privately held company with a long history of biomarker discovery, development, and validation. We are the legal manufacturer of CE IVD microtiter plate (MTP) assays. Committed to providing solutions that meet and exceed customer and regulatory requirements, we manufacture our products in accordance with EN ISO 13485:2016.
Microtiter plate assay
The innovative biomarkers are available as CE IVD microtiter plate (MTP) assays. The MTP is a standard tool in analytical research and labo- ratories. It is a high throughput solution, allowing the measurement of 41 patient samples at once. SphingoTec’s MTP assays are based on a chemiluminescence sandwich immunoassay technology.
First licensing agreement for penKid closed with Boditech Med, Inc.
SphingoTec is ISO 13485:2016 certified.
The novel biomarkers are introduced in routine measurements in European university hospitals.
Over 80,000 patients have been measured with our biomarker tests.
SphingoTec enters market by deploying the novel biomarkers via a point-of-care solution and distribution network.
Financing round: 25 million euro growth capital. Investors: HBM, Wellington Partners, and ILB.
