Innovative science meets commercial expertise
AmebaGone is poised to bring amoebic biocontrol into the healthcare mainstream.
AmebaGone was founded in 2010 with the goal of commercializing a revolutionary approach to biocontrol: harnessing the natural predatory behavior of amoebae to combat disease-causing microbes. Our technology has wide applications in the medical setting, including sterilization, biohazard control, and the treatment of wounds and diseases. Our sister company, AgraFilms, founded in 2018, deploys amoebic biocontrol in crops and food storage to improve efficiency and safety.
Our core technology was developed by founder Marcin Filutowicz and Katarzyna Borys at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Together with Argra-Films, AmebaGone has the potential to positively impact human health, water safety, agricultural productivity, and quality of life worldwide.
