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. 

The Solution

The solution consists of a patented antibody which binds to Staphylococcus Areus (SA)—the 1D9 monoclonal antibody...

Current Problems

Current detection technologies do not accurately distinguish inflammation from infection.

1. Problem

Patient infected by SA after a TJA are not diagnosed early enough to avoid medical complications.

inflammation, redness and elevated temperature

2. Problem

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

Why Sabiad?

Reduction of AMR
(Antimicrobial Resistance)

• 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
