Babraham Bioscience Technologies’ Technology Development Laboratory moves to Abzena

This settlement permits a seamless transition of present tasks, along with the capabilities, sources and experience from the TDL to Abzena. These capabilities embody enzymatic assay growth, small molecule inhibitor screening, molecular biology, cell tradition and protein purification. These capabilities will complement and combine into Abzena’s present broad vary of options, together with antibody engineering, bioassay and bioanalytical companies and cell line growth to allow the progress of biopharmaceutical analysis from discovery via to manufacturing for scientific trials.

Abzena will even develop on TDL’s present antibody discovery capabilities to provides its shoppers a platform for the speedy era of hybridoma cell strains expressing excessive affinity antibodies to their chosen goal.

Campbell Bunce, SVP Scientific Operations, Abzena mentioned: “Bringing the expertise of the TDL scientists into Abzena and integrating them into our offering across biology and biomanufacturing aligns very well with our services and technologies as a solution provider for drug developers and augments the overall toolbox we can offer our customers. We look forward to building on the knowledge that the TDL team has brought and continuing an excellent working relationship with their current partners.”

Derek Jones, CEO, Babraham Bioscience Technologies mentioned: “We have had a long tradition in supplying this expertise from the TDL, but have experienced challenges in scaling up the services to provide an end-to-end solution to our customer base. We are pleased that these skills and expertise will be utilised and expanded by Abzena, particularly given that the capability will remain available at the Babraham Research Campus, as well as to the wider customer base.”
