Akers Biosciences mission is dedicated to solving global health challenges. Akers was founded in 1989 and has over
30 years of success in the health diagnostic industry having developed proprietary, in vitro diagnostic technologies.

In March of 2020, in an attempt to further their mission, Akers announced a strategic partnership with Premas Biotech.
The partnerships primary objective is to focus on novel vaccine candidates.
The emergence of this pandemic offers an opportunity for the company to be a solution in the healthcare space,
one that sets the stage for our next chapter of growth.


Conference Call – Licensing

Akers Biosciences Schedules Conference Call to Discuss Licensing Announcement with Premas Biotech for a Coronvirus Vaccine Candidate

Listen to the replay of the call



Covid-19 Vaccine Candidate

Premas develops novel & transformational technologies and partners with global biopharmaceutical companies to build and develop novel biotherapeutic & vaccine candidates.
Akers licensed a novel coronavirus vaccine candidate under development by Premas using Premas’ genetically engineered S. cerevisiae platform, D-Crypt™.

The Premas platform has three key advantages which will set this vaccine candidate apart from industry peers.

  • Premas has previously expressed more than 30 proteins of similar profile to those in the structure of Covid-19,
    therefore the platform is well suited for the expression of difficult vaccine candidate proteins.
    The technology platform is highly scalable with a robust process, which should represent significant cost savings compared to other similar vaccine platforms.
    The current global pandemic might allow for an expedited FDA review timeline based on recent pronouncements regarding other Covid-19 vaccine and treatment candidates.

Premas successfully cloned three Coronavirus antigens, Spike (S), Envelope (E), and Membrane (M) in the first quarter of 2020 which further differentiates our vaccine candidate.
We aim to provide the immune system with several opportunities to identify the virus; a design concept extremely important for efficacy and our future success.

We held a conference call with Prabuddha Kundu, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Premas Biotech, in late March.
The transcript, which provides additional information on our philosophy and milestone timeline, can be accessed here.

Particle Immuno-Filtration Assay (PIFA®) Technology

PIFA® technology is a cutting-edge, patented immunoassay method which rapidly, easily, and accurately detects target antigens or antibodies.

How It Works

PIFA® technology is based on the selective filtration of microparticles in response to antibody/antigen binding.
Dyed microparticles coated with antigens or antibodies determine the visual signal for the results of the assay.
The presence of a corresponding antibody or antigen in the test sample results in the formation of a matrix of microparticles, which are more susceptible to filtration.
The inability of these matrixed microparticles to move through the filter, and the resulting color change in the reagent mixture,
signal positive reactivity of the test sample (e.g. the presence of target antigens or antibodies).

Key features of PIFA® technology make it advantageous for a broad array of uses:

  • Accuracy rivaling or surpassing current laboratory methods
    Rapid Results, typically within 1 to 5 minutes
    Point-of-care compatibility
    Easy to use
    Easy to dispose

PIFA® technology is currently used in:
