Label free IR spectroscopy


Several years of research on diamond waveguides for sensitive analys of proteins, led by Prof. Lars Österlund, Dr. Per Ola Andersson, Dr. Mikael Karlsson and Dr. Fredrik Nikolajeff, resulted in the start of Molecular Fingerprint in 2009. Molecular Fingerprint AB is a spinn-off company from Uppsala University, Sweden.


Research is focused on:


  • Protein analysis
  • Diagnostics
  • Kinetic studies

Diamond waveguides


We are located in Uppsala and we have a close collaboration with Uppsala University. The excellent clean room facilities at the Ångström Laboratory (Uppsala Universty) is used for the fabrication of the diamond waveguides.
