The project »Development of a novel test system for the autoimmune diagnostics of diseases of the nervous system« resulted in a direct transfer of knowledge and technology from the university to the diagnostics market.
The partners from the university (Prof. Ursula Anderer) and cooperating companies - Generic Assays GmbH (Prof. Dirk Roggenbuck) and Attomol GmbH (Dr. Werner Lehmann) - worked together on an application-oriented research project. A test prototype was developed for the determination of autoantibodies against ganglioside antigens. Following the project period, clinical evaluation was carried out to determine the general quality parameters.
In this project, four biotechnology students were actively involved with their project work (sixth semester) and one student was actively involved during his bachelor's thesis. After completing his bachelor thesis, Mr. Milius was recruited by the Attomol GmbH as an employee and still works there today.
At present, the developed test system is manufactured by Attomol GmbH, which has created the technical and technological conditions for this purpose. Generic Assays GmbH successfully markets the product on the diagnostics market. The cooperative development and transfer work for this test system was honored with the Technology Transfer Prize 2005 of the Technology Foundation Brandenburg.
