Comprehensive Analytical Testing & Development

Advance your biotherapeutic entities by partnering with our team to develop stage appropriate analytical methods. We secure your downstream testing success with our precise Quality by Design (QbD) approach, in-depth understanding of macromolecule physicochemical properties, and state of the art analytical instrumentation and columns.
After establishing method feasibility, our team optimizes the process to ensure appropriate resolution and achievable detection limits. Before testing begins, we also determine linearity, precision, accuracy, and specific method development to anticipate acceptance criteria and pre-validation method performance.
From the first step to the last, we provide the analytical implementation needed to advance your biologic with confidence.

Drug Substance & Drug Product Methods

Our biotherapeutic method development process includes rigorous separation and quantitation, powered by chromatographic, electrophoretic, spectroscopic, and thermal instrumentation. These analytical methods are developed for effective characterization and release, with the goal of cultivating stability-indicating formulation and process development programs. The developed analytical assessments can be applied to the following applications:

Methods for All Biologics

Our analytical development capabilities cover a variety of analytical assessments to tackle any potential biotherapeutic modalities, including novel molecules and novel assay development. We have experience completing an extensive array of method development and implementation for assays, including:
