Analytical Development

Companies choose to work with us because we are experts in developing complete analytical packages for novel and complex vaccine and biologic products.

Method Development

We support you in the design of a suite of analytical assays that assess the important and critical quality attributes for your unique product.

Assay development is customized to suit this target product profile. Our scientists follow a systematic structured methodology to develop the optimal assay for your product.

Immunological assay

Method Validation

We validate your assays to demonstrate that the appropriate assay performance criteria are met, and the analytical target profile is achieved. Our quality management system ensures validation policies are aligned with the ICH method validation guidelines ICH Q2(R1).

We assess and verify the following assay parameters as appropriate for your project:

  • Specificity
  • Range
  • Accuracy
  • Precision
  • Repeatability
  • Intermediate Precision
  • Linearity
  • Detection Limit
  • Quantification Limit
  • Robustness

USP methods are performed as defined, or are adapted, customized and validated as appropriate.

Method Transfer

We can transfer methods to or from your facilities or partner facilities as required.
