Biologics Immunogenicity and PK/PD

The immunogenic potential of biotherapeutic drug molecules can have an effect at any point from its administration through metabolism and elimination. Therefore, it is important to understand the impact of immunogenicity upon the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) properties of a large molecule drug.

Subsequently, the characterization of the effect of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) on the PK is critical. The development of a physiologically relevant PK model in the context of the immunogenicity profile offers significant value to preclinical development.

Technology platforms that enable in vitro, ex vivo, as well as in vivo evaluations encompass a total solution offered by PerkinElmer.

Nucleic Acid Analysis and Protein Characterization

PerkinElmer offers automated microfluidic devices, simplifying the analysis of nucleic acid concentration and qualitative assessment of PCR products, and replacing the multiple manual steps of slab gel electrophoresis with high levels of accuracy.

Sample preparation and characterization of proteins for quality by design (QbD) studies are important parts of process development; however, these studies, including design of experiments(DoE), can be time-consuming, and sample analysis can easily exceed the capacity of most labs.

Miniaturization of small-scale protein purification provides greater process optimization with larger QbD and DoE studies allowing for parallel processing of samples for increased statistical significance and a greater breadth of variables within experimental shorter time frames.

In Vivo Preclinical Imaging Instruments

Delivering fast, longitudinal, real-time quantitative assessment of drug candidates, non-invasive in vivo imaging enables physiological assessment, including:

  • Biodistribution and dosing strategies
  • Efficacy and off-target effects
  • Drug safety and toxicology
  • Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) profiles in the context of the whole animal
  • Longitudinal studies providing quantitative intrasubject comparisons, enhancing the statistical power of data

Multiparametric data points from fewer subjects enable reduction in animal usage, streamlining drug assessment and lowering costs.
