BioGenes Introduces New Tools for Immunogenicity and PK Testing
Press Release | BioGenes GmbH
JUNE 08, 2018
Berlin, Germany: – Leading force in host cell protein (HCP) assay development, BioGenes GmbH, has rolled out a new suite of tools and services for immunogenicity and pharmacokinetic (PK) testing.
The new tools include custom development of immunogenicity and PK assays as well as corresponding antibodies plus ELISA qualification and pre-validation.
Targeted anti-drug antibodies
Thus, BioGenes can now develop targeted polyclonal anti-drug-antibodies as control for immunogenicity studies and monoclonal antibodies for PK immunoassays based on its optimized technology. The development services include production and pair search of antibodies.
Currently, monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are available for Adalimumab, Infliximab, Tocilizumab and Golimumab. Further anti-drug-antibodies are in development.
GLP validation and sample measurement
BioGenes is delivering the new services in collaboration with its GLP validation and sample measurement partner, Eurofins Munich.
However, BioGenes will transfer the ELISA testing and protocols to the client’s own laboratory or chosen CRO, if preferred.
BioGenes first exhibited the new service range at the recent Biologics & Biosimilars Congress in Berlin, where they attracted significant visitor interest.
“The procedure of ordering these new services is very simple,” said BioGenes Marketing & Sales Director, Dagmar Schwertner-Knoll.
“The client only has to fill out a brief questionnaire that answers questions like what kind of ELISA or antibody development is required, which therapeutic or biosimilar is to be targeted and whether suitable antibodies or samples can be provided. The rest is done by BioGenes and Eurofins,” she explained.
