Find the optimal path to develop your biotech product with our collaborative project planning and laboratory services.
We’re not a routine lab work service provider. Rather than simply generate data, we work closely with you to address your technology’s unique challenges and develop your product.
We solve difficult protein chemistry problems in:
- Structure-function analysis
- Genetic engineering/vector design
- Expression, purification, and characterization
- Stabilization studies
- Activity assay development
- Modification and conjugation (pegylation, biotin, and fluorescent labeling, enzyme conjugation)
Your product needs expert development to get to market.
We’ve proven our ability to foster growth, advance technology, cultivate progress and keep your project on track.
Some examples of protein products we’ve helped develop include:
Enzymes for replacement therapy
We developed methods to conjugate a cell-penetrating peptide to enzymes to treat enzyme deficiency diseases for a virtual company. Besides developing and optimizing the conjugations, we also stabilized the protein constructs and increased their serum half-life via pegylation. The results of mouse studies with our enzyme-peptide-PEG constructs helped our client raise millions of dollars to establish their own laboratory and continue the development of their product.
Early stage antibody therapeutic
We developed humanized diabodies for the treatment of infectious diseases. We analyzed these custom molecules to understand their biochemical properties. We then were able to optimize the biological activity of the newly developed molecules.
Protein based cosmetics
For an investor group, we completed a project that involved the development of a safe, protein-based formulation that whitens teeth without the use of harsh oxidizing agents. The product we developed was effective and helped the investor group raise significantly more funds to establish their own laboratory.
Method development for tumor imaging molecules
Controlling the serum half-life was key for custom Fab molecules and diabodies that we prepared for use in tumor imaging studies. These antibody fragments were specifically labeled with proprietary PEGs to precisely regulate the clearance rate in vivo. These conjugates were then used for successful tumor imaging studies.
We offer you new capabilities to help you get your technology market-ready.
Working with us accelerates your product development timeline. You immediately gain access to our team of 25+ scientists (15 Ph.Ds) and fully equipped research labs. You get experienced, dedicated support without spending time hiring staff and securing lab space.
Our diverse team of scientists hold degrees in a broad range of disciplines. The diversity of our staff allows us to look at problems in different ways and find new ways to improve your technology. We’ve used our unique problem-solving ability to help past clients improve their product performance and reduce their costs, and we can do the same for you.
We accelerate your technology’s progress to the market with a proven biotechnology product development process.
Biotech companies often need world-class collaborators, and we’re with you every step of the way. We share our scientific understanding, technical expertise, and industry knowledge to guide your technology’s progress.
Our first step is tailoring a development team to meet your project’s specific needs. This dedicated team of experts will understand the requirements needed to develop your project plan.
Only after establishing a deep understanding of your target protein’s properties and product development process do we initiate work in one of our fully equipped labs.
Throughout your project, we stay in close communication, giving frequent updates so you can stay in control of your timeline and budget.
