Patent Cites HemogloBind™ in Complement Mediation

Press Release ( - MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J. - Jan 12, 2017 - Biotech Support Group reports on a recent patent reporting the simplicity and efficiency of their hemoglobin depletion technology for removing interferences from a Bilirubin assay in an example describing complement-mediated diseases.  The patent is:

Krishna, Neel K., and Kenji Cunnion. “Derivative Peptide Compounds and Methods of Use.” U.S. Patent No. 20,160,376,322. 29 Dec. 2016.

The invention describes synthetic peptide compounds and uses for therapy and diagnostics of complement-mediated diseases, such as inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases, and microbial infections; and non-complement-mediated diseases, such cystic fibrosis and various acute diseases. The patent states “Due to large amounts of hemolysis in the latter time points and the associated optical interference in bilirubin analysis, all the samples were pre-treated with HemogloBind™ (Biotech, N.J.) prior to analysis with the Bilirubin Assay Kit”.

“Here is another example of how removing hemoglobin can significantly improve the detection of bilirubin and other blood analytes.” states Swapan Roy, Ph.D., President and Founder of Biotech Support Group.
