The β-decay properties of the very neutron-rich nucleus Ge85, produced in the proton-induced fission of U238, were studied at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The level scheme of As523385 populated in Ge85βγ decay was reconstructed and compared to shell-model calculations. The investigation of the systematics of low-energy levels in N=52 isotones together with shell-model analysis allowed us to provide an estimate of the low-energy structure of the more exotic N=52 isotone Cu81.
