Next-Gen Tracer for Infection Imaging
New era in healthcare with StaphMark, our innovative solution for early, precise detection and treatment of bacterial infections.
Sabiad - Infection Imaging
Sabiad's solution is a major innovation in the field of infection imaging. It uses monoclonal antibodies, making the diagnosis of Staphylococcus Areus related infections in the (orthopedic) implant area not only accurate but also fast and minimally invasive.

Current detection technologies do not accurately distinguish inflammation from infection.
Patient infected by SA after a TJA are not diagnosed early enough to avoid medical complications.
More than 1.5 million TJA procedures are performed in US and Europe every year.
>2,5% of these patients get infected by SA.
The main factors driving the need for Total Joint Arthroplasty (hip & knee) are aging population, overweight / obesity and mechanical stress. Therefore the number of TJAs is expected to significantly increase in the future
Reduction of AMR
• Prevention of overtreatement with antibiotics
Fast and accurate decision making
• Increasing accuracy of diagnosis
• Earlier diagnosis may lead to earlier treatment and better outcome
High sensitivity and specifity
• Clear discrimination between infection and inflammation
Early/direct confirmation of infection for go-/no-go decision making
• Patient driven care
• Point of care decision
Less revision surgery by early interventions & accurate diagnosis
• Significant reduction of cost
Reduction of complications
• Improve patients recovery and comfort
Implant-associated infections are challenging to diagnose and treat.
Spine implant infections portend disastrous outcomes, as diagnosis is challenging.
Animal models are used to guide management of periprosthetic implant infections.
