InBio @ AAAAI 2024

Washington DC is a beautiful City! Crossing the Potomac from Virginia, the city emanates American history with its stately monuments, memorials, parks, boulevards, and iconic buildings. DC has a youthful vibe, as a diverse cultural center for arts, music, and dance, as well as a growing ethnic food scene.  At InBio, we’re excited that the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting will be held in DC this week (February 23-26).

InBio scientists will be presenting several abstracts at the AAAAI. Of note, this will be the US launch of Apollo, InBio’s novel ambient air sampling device for detection of allergens, endotoxin and other airborne contaminants. With its high flow rate and whisper quiet operation, Apollo is designed for use in homes, schools and the workplace and will be sampling the air at InBio’s exhibit! Data on allergen and endotoxin detection using Apollo will be presented by Dr. Maria Oliver (Abstract #342).

InBio will be presenting data on human IgE monoclonal antibodies to alpha-gal and the epitope repertoire of Der p 2. Our collaborator, Dr. Kriti Khatri will present the first ever structure of a human IgE mAb epitope on dog allergen, Can f 1. Other posters focus on the development of food reference materials and on Alpha/Gamma-Gliadins as targets in wheat allergy.

The theme of Collaboration, Discovery and Innovation at the AAAAI dovetails with InBio’s research strategy. Our review on precision engineering for localization of allergenic epitopes has just been published online in the JACI.

We hope you enjoy your time in Washington and look forward to seeing you at the AAAAI!

President & CEO

InBio will be at Booth 755 with exciting announcements and a new look – join us too discuss the latest developments in allergens, molecular diagnostics, food allergy and indoor air quality.
