  • Absolute Antibody

    Absolute Antibody is a CRO offering fully customised services for the sequencing, engineering and manufacture of antibodies. Located across two sites in the UK, Absolute Antibody is a recently established company run by a leadership team with a wealth of experience in the development and manufacture of therapeutic antibodies. We focus on making the production of milligram to gram quantities of antibody quicker and more cost effective for early to mid-stage therapeutic projects through the use of proprietary vectors (pUV™), a high-yielding transient mammalian cell line (ABS293™) and a universal purification platform. For early stage projects we offer a variant screening service for cloning and production of microgram to milligram quantities of as many as 96 antibodies in parallel. For later stage projects we offer rapid manufacture of almost any antibody format, such as IgG, Fab and Fab2, up to gram quantities with high purity and low endotoxin suitable for all in vitro and in vivo uses.

  • Avia Biosystems

    AVIA Logo 2C


    AVIA Biosystems is helping Bio-Pharmaceutical companies gain critical insights about Protein Stability to advance the best molecules faster, fail challenging molecules sooner, and optimize formulation and process conditions, potentially saving millions of dollars in financial and human resources for their businesses.
    AVIA Biosystems has developed the first automated ICD (Isothermal Chemical Denaturation) Systems to the biopharmaceutical industry.  These systems provide simultaneous determination of protein stability and aggregation at temperatures meaningful to the processing and long-term storage of therapeutic proteins.  ICD systems are utilized at multiple stages in the biologics development process including protein construct stability rank-ordering, process conditions optimization, pre-formulations screening and formulations optimization.  In early stage development, ICD data contributes significantly to the developability assessment of new biologics.  In later stage development, ICD data enables quantitative, thermodynamically directed, formulations optimization.  ICD provides valuable insights and guidance about the compromises between protein conformational stability, solubility and viscosity that need to be addressed during formulations optimization.  The optimal biologic formulation is the one that provides optimal long-term stability and ICD is able to provide quantitative guidance throughout the formulation optimization process by measuring protein stability, native protein self-association and denatured protein aggregation as a function of formulation buffer and excipient conditions.

  • TTP Labtech

    TTP Labtech logo strapline

    Multiplexing antibody discovery assays means that multiple targets can be investigated in the same well, making the cost of screening cheaper as well as giving more stringent results.
    TTP Labtech’s mirrorball® combines the power of flow and imaging by simultaneously capturing multiple fluorescence channels of data from microplate wells. It removes the need for wash steps and allows multiple targets to be studied. mirrorball® can run screening assays in high density 96-, 384- and 1536-well plates, streamlining screening workflows considerably. It also allows cells and beads to be colour-coded to identify binding for different targets in the same well with different cells or beads.
    Researchers have used mirrorball® to identify antibody cross-reactivity and selectivity but – significantly – in the same sample and without the loss of throughput.

  • Xpress Biologics


    Xpress Biologics is a biotech company proposing contract services for the production of recombinant proteins, antibody fragments and plasmid DNA for preclinical applications specific to the therapeutic and diagnostic markets (human & veterinary).
    Its mission is to enable the transition of the projects from R&D to clinical manufacturing.
    The production scale (from 100 mg up to several tens of grams) and the quality of the biologics (R&D and GLP grade material) proposed by Xpress Biologics are adapted for in vitro and in vivo pre-clinical validation of the biologics (proof-of-concept, early safety, potency, efficacy…).
    The production processes are all developed in microbial expression systems, E. coli (soluble cytoplasmic, inclusion bodies and periplasmic productions) and P. pastoris (secreted protein) mainly.
    Moreover, Xpress Biologics processes are free of charge in terms of license or royalty fees and take into account the industrial (scale-up) and regulatory requirements, including the development of the quality controls, which greatly facilitates the transfer of the project to CMOs (Contract Manufacturing Organizations) for the production of GMP grade material.
    Xpress Biologics acts as One-Stop-Shop and can, through project management with defined subcontractors, take in charge additional services as the production of GMP grade material, the organization of pre-clinical and clinical studies.
