In Vitro Assays

To better understand the interactions of the innate and adaptive immune response within the body, plate-based models are widely used for screening biologics, validating signalling events and determining the mechanism of action of the therapeutic.

Comprehending the interactions between innate and adaptive immunity play a critical role in the research, discovery and the development of immunotherapies.

We offer a range assays for characterizing the cytokine response, measuring signalling events and understanding the antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) of the biologic using highly sensitive 51Cr as well TRF based ELISAs and next gen-no-wash immunoassays.

Drug Discovery Screening Reagents

Your job is to move from target to hit to candidate quickly and efficiently – with as little wasted resources as possible. Our drug discovery screening reagents do just that.

Whether you are doing high throughput screening or focused screening, we offer a wide range of validated reagents and kits in Alpha chemiluminescent, LANCE® TR-FRET, DELFIA® TRF, and other assay technologies to suit you screening assay needs.
