BioGenes and FyoniBio Combine Their Scientific Expertise and Cooperate on Pharmacokinetic & Immunogenicity Analyses
- This collaboration covers a broad range of services, from antibody development to the analysis of clinical samples
- The individual expertise of each company makes them ideal partners
- The first customer projects are expected to start in the next couple of weeks
Berlin, 20. August 2021 – Pharmacokinetic and immunogenicity projects can be both diverse and complex, involving work packages from antibody generation and production to the analysis of clinical samples with validated assays. At the end of June, an agreement was signed by BioGenes GmbH and FyoniBio, thanks to which pharmaceutical and biotech companies can now obtain these services from a single source and thus rely on the long-standing, complementary expertise of both companies.
Due to their great experience, both BioGenes and FyoniBio ensure that projects are handled with maximized efficiency. BioGenes, as an expert in antibody production and ELISA setup, takes care of the first steps of the project, while FyoniBio, a specialist in bioassay development and validation for analysis of clinical samples, uses their expertise to transfer the assay to the MSD2 platform for analyzing clinical samples under “good clinical and laboratory practice” (GCLP). Specialists at both Berlin-based companies always guarantee comprehensive project management.
"We are very pleased that the cooperation with FyoniBio has now officially started," said Dr. Alexander Knoll, CEO of BioGenes GmbH. "We are convinced that our complete package for high-quality and customized immunological tests for new biological compounds and clinical samples offers an enormous added value for customers."
"Both companies want to provide the perfect service for each customer. In this respect, as well as regarding scientific excellence in their respective fields, the two companies complement each other very well," added Dr. Hans Baumeister, Service Division Manager at FyoniBio. "We are looking forward to the first joint projects.”
