Analytical Services - Lead Discovery Services - BioAssay Systems
BioAssay Systems scientists have over
25 years of experience in assay development and have designed over 100 assay kits for research and
drug discovery. In addition to providing high-quality assay kits, BioAssay Systems offers a variety of services
of utility to researchers in academia or industry. BioAssay Systems has successfully completed
analytical services for food industry, biotech and pharmaceutical companies. These services covered a wide
variety of projects including developing assays to trouble shoot processes, executing screening assays
and performing analytical assays for FDA submittals.
Analytical Services: BioAssay Systems has a large
repertoire of assays for measuring a vast array of key analytes in biological, environmental, food and
beverage samples. Our analytical services include all of our assays.
In addition, we offer the following services:
Biodegradable Polymers: BioAssay Systems has developed a proprietary ultra-sensitive assay to quantify polylactate polymers such as PLA and PLGA, in tissue samples. BioAssay Systems has successfully performed this assay to
measure the degradation of polymer coatings on implanted devices for three different medical device companies. Results from
these projects were critical for two CE Mark Approvals and the FDA approval of two medical device Investigational Device Exemption
(IDE) applications... More details
1. Useful to assess remaining polymer coatings on implanted medical devices;
2. Accuracy and sensitivity of the assay are not affected by polymer MW, which will decrease over time after implantation;
3. There is no requirement to remove tissue from the sample, the polymer on both the device and in the tissue are measured together;
4. Depending on the nature of the sample and polymer composition, sensitivity as low as 1 µg is possible.
Lead Discovery Services: BioAssay Systems has developed a range of assays for performing lead optimization and characterization.
Targets include but not limited to arginase, lipase, α-amylase, α- or β-glucosidase and kinases.
Assay Customization: BioAssay Systems also offers customization of any of our assays if a customer
should have special requirements.
Assay Design and Development: BioAssay Systems scientists have strong expertise in assay design and development for research and drug discovery applications.
Clients are welcome to contact us about developing custom assays to meet their specific needs.
