Ready-to-go Bioassays for >35 Biosimilars & Biobetters

Simple, Rapid, Robust, and Reproducible Bioassays

Accelerate assay development for potency measurement and QC lot release testing with cell-based assays that use a simple, no-wash protocol to provide results in a few hours. Assays are available either as continuous culture cell lines or as bioassay kits. The bioassay kits increase the convenience and reproducibility of the assay by including cryopreserved ready-to-use cells. These assays have enabled multiple global clients to rapidly develop and successfully transfer precise, robust and accurate potency assays for use in QC lot release testing of their biosimilar drug.

Assay Protocol

Example Assay Verification Data

   
   
A few examples from over 35 bioassays developed for biosimilars that can be used for both potency and NAb assays. A. Bioassay for Insulin demonstrates high reproducibility with three separate plates tested in a cell-based functional assay. B. GLP1 and Exendin-4 bioassay has been developed to accelerate development of biosimilars to metabolic drugs using a cyclic AMP readout in live cells. C. Bioassay developed for anti-TNFa drugs enables one to benchmark drugs like Humira, Remicade, Enbrel or Cimzia against the appropriate biosimilar molecule. D. A simple assay to determine potency of anti-VEGF-A antibodies for drugs like Avastin and its biosimilars.
