Life Science Sweden writes about Mabtech

Swedish biotech newspaper Life Science Sweden has picked up the news about Niklas Ahlborg becoming CEO of Mabtech. Here is a link to the article (in Swedish): Monday, February 19, 2018

Mabtech appoints Niklas Ahlborg as new CEO

Today, February 15 2018, Mabtech announces that Niklas Ahlborg, PhD, has been appointed new Chief Executive Officer, replacing Staffan Paulie who will continue on the Board of Directors.

Hi Niklas! CEO of Mabtech – how did that happen?
I have been the head of R&D for 17 years and understand that part of the company well. When I was asked about this new opportunity it felt like an exciting challenge and a chance to learn new things.

What does Mabtech mean to you?
Having spent many years here, it is a very familiar place with lots of nice and competent people. As a company, I associate Mabtech with quality.

What is your vision for Mabtech?
I want to continue to grow the core business of Mabtech and find new ways to expand in areas that are still fairly small or completely novel for the company.

What challenges lie ahead?
For the company, the challenge will be to remain innovative and keep up with the development of immunoassays and new techniques.


Niklas Ahlborg has almost thirty years of experience with life science research in malaria, immunology and immunoassays. After a PhD at Stockholm University in 1995 and a Post Doc at Edinburgh University he became an Associate Professor at Stockholm University in 2000. Soon thereafter, Niklas joined Mabtech and has since then been the Head of the R&D group and part of the management.

Launch of new reagents for human IL-13 ELISA, ELISpot and FluoroSpot

human il13 reagents

We have developed new monoclonal antibodies to human IL-13. As of February 8, 2018, the new antibodies are included in our Human IL-13 assays and are also available as separate reagents.

Please find the Human IL-13 products in the web shop.

If you are analyzing IL-13 in samples from non-human primates, antibodies and kits cross-reactive with certain non-human primates are also available in the web shop.

Launch of Mouse apoE ELISA and monoclonal antibodies

mouse apoe elisa and antibodies

Mabtech has developed monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and ELISAPRO kits for the detection of mouse apolipoprotein E (apoE). The mAbs are available as separate items and included in our validated ELISAPRO kits for sensitive detection of mouse apoE in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

ApoE is produced by many cell types, including hepatocytes, macrophages, and endothelial cells. It is the primary carrier of lipids in the brain. ApoE is considered to be anti-atherogenic and is associated with cardiovascular and neurological diseases.

Pre-coated Monkey IFN-γ/IL-2 FluoroSpot

monkey ifng il2 fluorospot

The use of pre-coated Monkey IFN-γ/IL-2 plates for FluoroSpot is a convenient option which enables a more rapid assay with minimized variability.

Pre-coated plates already have the capture antibodies bound to the membrane, which eliminates the ethanol pre-treatment and antibody coating steps from the protocol. Mabtech’s FluoroSpot kits are available in 2 and 10 plate formats.

FluoroSpot detection reagent replacement

fluorospot detection reagents

We have improved the detection reagents used in our FluoroSpot assays!

Epitope tag/anti-tag reagents are used as an amplification step in FluoroSpot assays. With our new tag/anti-tag reagents the detection of human and monkey IFN-γ is improved. As a consequence of this change, the detection reagents for IL-5, IL-17A and TNF-α in triple FluoroSpot kits have been updated.
