Innovative Detection Platform Provides BioAgilytix Customers with Important Advancement in Sensitivity and Reliability for their Immunoassays
JUNE 19, 2018—Durham, NC—BioAgilytix, a leading provider of contract bioanalytical testing services with specialization in large molecule bioanalysis, is expanding its advanced bioanalytical technology suite with the addition of Sword Bio’s detection platform for immunoassays. Sword’s platform represents an important advancement in enzyme immunoassays, providing enhanced sensitivity, precision, and accuracy for the rapid and high performance measurement and quantification of biological markers. The companies will collaborate to meet ever-growing customer needs to further enhance the performance of immunoassays used for biomarkers, immunogenicity, and pharmacokinetics (PK).
Sword Bio’s platform uses a patented technology involving resonance Raman to enhance precise and accurate quantification of analytes in the picogram/milliliter (pg/ml) range. Combined with Sword Bio’s ability to rapidly configure an array of off-the-shelf or proprietary tests to the matrix need, the solution will empower BioAgilytix with the ability to create more sensitive and robust assays faster for their clients.
“Sword’s technology will be of great value to BioAgilytix and our customers, as it enables low detection of analytes and gives our team the ability to quickly increase ELISA sensitivity,” said Afshin Safavi, Founder and Global Chief Scientific Officer of BioAgilytix. “It will further enhance our ability to deliver robust and reliable data from assays that we utilize every day, so that we can help our customers make drug development decisions with confidence.”
“BioAgilytix is a globally respected leader in immunoassays, and we are pleased to be partnering with them in meeting the needs of both our customers,” said David Dingott, President and CEO of Sword Bio. “We are confident that the combination of Sword’s innovative platform and BioAgilytix’s deep scientific expertise will enable research and pharmaceutical organizations to continue to make exciting new drug development breakthroughs.”
