Has Invested in Flow Cytometry

In response to the increasing number of therapeutic antibodies and recombinant proteins entering the development phase, there is a greater need to assess potential immunogenicity. Over the past few years, SGS has invested in this area to come up with a bioanalytical service offering that is more complete than ever.
SGS now offers the highly versatile technology of Flow Cytometry to support clinical development. We currently operate a BD FACSCanto II (3 lasers - 8 colors) equipped with a High Throughput Sampler.

SGS Life Science Services is a global CRO with the expertise to develop assays from scratch and to support large scale routine sample analyses, from pre-clinical (pK IND toxicology submission packages) and clinical studies.

The following are examples of our immunoanalysis services:

  • Immunogenicity screening assays (peptide drugs and therapeutic monoclonal antibodies)
  • Detect levels of anti-drug antibodies present in subjects, including neutralizing antibodies
  • Eliminate false negatives by selecting the appropriate cut-off point
  • Discriminate between pre-existing and treatment-induced antibodies
  • Development of appropriate cell-based assays for neutralizing antibodies
  • Drug-antibody interference
  • Quantification of therapeutic proteinsor antibodies to support Pre-clinical pharmacokinetic/toxicokinetic studies
  • Clinical studies across all phases
