In the realm of bioanalytical research, immunoassays stand as a cornerstone technology, enabling the precise detection of biological drugs within complex matrices. Among the leaders in this field is Agilex, a laboratory that has set the global standard for immunoassay expertise. Let’s explore Agilex’s exceptional capabilities and how they have earned their reputation as the go-to laboratory for immunoassays, not only in Australia but worldwide.
The Power of Immunoassays and Its Challenges
Immunoassays rely on the interactions between antibodies and antigens, forming the basis for detecting biological drugs within various biological fluids, including serum, plasma, and cerebrospinal fluid. Agilex has been a pioneering force in immunoassay technologies for over a decade, specializing in the development of complex assays capable of detecting monoclonal antibodies, bispecific drugs, and even TriSpecific drugs.
The complexity of immunoassays lies in unraveling intricate antibody-antibody or antibody-antigen interactions that underpin this technology. Agilex employs a range of platforms, including the widely-used ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay), the highly sensitive MSD (Meso Scale Discovery) assay, and the fluorescent-based Gyros platform. These platforms share a common goal: selectively isolating drugs from complex materials.
The vital role of immunoassays becomes evident when they provide essential data for building pharmacokinetic (PK) profiles during clinical trials. These profiles offer invaluable insights into how drugs behave within the human body, ultimately guiding drug development and regulatory decisions.
Developing an immunoassay with the required sensitivity to detect low-abundance drugs during the early stages of clinical trials is a formidable challenge. Agilex overcomes this obstacle by utilizing highly specific reagents and selecting platforms like MSD or Gyros based on the unique characteristics of each drug and clinical trial.
The Agilex Advantage
Agilex’s distinction as the global leader in immunoassays extends beyond Australian borders, transcending national boundaries. The laboratory has garnered acclaim for its ability to rescue projects that other laboratories struggled with, steering them towards triumphant conclusions. Agilex attributes this success to its seasoned team of method developers, boasting a cumulative experience of over a century, spanning diverse industries, platforms, and drugs.
Agilex’s hallmark is its ability to swiftly advance projects, thanks to its unparalleled expertise. The collaborative approach ensures the rapid development and validation of assays in accordance with regulatory guidelines. Agilex’s strategic location in Australia presents a unique advantage, capitalizing on a streamlined regulatory framework while delivering prompt results.
