BBI Solutions OEM Limited (BBI), a provider of end-to-end solutions for the development of high-performance assays, signed a partnership agreement with BioAgilytix, a global bioanalytical laboratory. The partnership will integrate BBI’s ability to produce custom antibody reagents for a variety of testing applications with BioAgilytix’s bioanalytical testing services. 

Streamlining Bioanalytical Testing

This approach is designed to simplify a crucial step in bioanalytical testing for pharma and biopharma sponsors. The more streamlined service will ultimately help bring customers one step closer to market for their innovative therapies.

“This partnership further strengthens an already excellent relationship with BioAgilytix through which BBI can utilize the depth of its antibody development expertise to provide custom solutions to its clients,” says Mathew Hobbs, chief commercial officer, BBI. “By streamlining a critical and complex step in bioanalytical testing, we’re helping customers get one step closer to delivering their innovative therapies to patients.”

As part of bioanalytical testing—a key aspect of bringing any new therapy to market—drug developers often need a variety of antibody reagents tailored to their candidate therapy, and for a range of testing applications. However, developing and securing a reliable supply of fit-for-purpose, customized antibody reagents is not easy. This step is often managed in isolation from other aspects of a bioanalytical testing program, which can further complicate the process.

The new partnership between BioAgilytix and BBI’s antibody development centre, MBS, will address this challenge. BBI’s proven, efficient mono- and polyclonal custom antibody reagent development services will be seamlessly integrated with BioAgilytix’s bioanalytical testing solutions. This simplifies the experience for bioanalytical testing customers, who can now work with a single provider for swift access to high-quality, custom antibody reagents suitable across testing applications.
