Physiochemical and Structural Analyses

An essential requirement of therapeutic monoclonal antibody development is characterizing the inherent structural heterogeneity of the antibody. High- and low-molecular-weight species, charge variants, and post-translational modifications can all affect in vivo stability, loss of biological activity, and produce unwanted immune effects.

Our team of experienced chemists can provide the support and advice you need to ensure that protein structure analysis and physiochemical analysis is performed at appropriate stages during development of a therapeutic antibody so these risks are managed.
Biological Analysis

Characterize the binding and functional activity of your biologic molecule with a range of cell-based binding and potency assays. Advance the development of your monoclonal antibody with our comprehensive range of assay development and validation services, including pre-qualified assays for over 12 commercial monoclonal antibodies.
