Your Project will benefit from our expertise

Because the uses for biomarkers are quite diverse, they require a contract laboratory partner with a breadth of specialty expertise. Eurofins Bioanalytical has unmatched experience in assay development, validation and analysis.

Whether your therapeutic focus is metabolism, neurodegenerative disease, osteoporosis, immuno oncology, or infectious disease, successful programs depend upon precise biomarker evaluation. Our experience has taught us that no one platform can adequately address all biomarker needs and the use of diverse platforms such as: RIA, Gyros™, Luminex®, MSD® and Singulex® is required to quantitative assess soluble biomarkers.

Through partnering with Eurofins Bioanalytics you can be assured that we will apply the optimal solution to address your needs.

With over 15 years of experience consulting, developing and performing Fit-for-Purpose immunoassays in both pre-clinical and clinical studies we have proven expertise.

Let our experience guide you.

Exploratory Biomarker Services

Whether it is a Customized or commercially available immunoassay kits, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are faced with various challenges in developing new and innovative medical products, including increased drug development costs, decreasing rate of drug approvals by the FDA .

Developing novel biomarker assays requires a great deal of time, a high level of expertise, and often comes at an incredibly high expense. These factors have contributed to the growing popularity of commercial immunoassay kits. Commercially available biomarker assay kits are a less resource-intensive alternative to support drug development programs at a lower price point. These kits also offer the benefits of portability, expedited analytical solutions, and in most cases, ease of operation

Fit-for-Purpose Biomarker Services

We offer consultation and services for proven biomarker assay validation, including Fit-for-Purpose strategies coupled with full GxP compliance. With unsurpassed experience and following the current industry guidelines, Eurofins Bioanalytical Services provides the technical expertise, quality assurance and peace of mind essential when considering an outsourcing partner for preclinical through clinical regulated sample analysis.

Validated Biomarker Services

Validation of analytical methods is crucial in generating data to be used in support of regulatory submissions. Following the most up-to-date industry guidelines, we offer a fully consultative and comprehensive assay validation or cross-validation service. We validate using a fit-for-purpose approach as appropriate for the nature of the assay as well as the stage in drug development.

Our GLP-compliant service laboratories are involved in international workshops and has R&D programs to keep ahead of the latest developments in this area, so that we can best help our customers to accelerate their drug discovery and development programs. Adhering to current FDA and EMEA guidelines and AAPS white papers, we follow a stepwise approach to measure ADA responses using ELISA/RIA, surface plasmon resonance (SPR, Biacore®), electrochemiluminescence (ECL), DELFIA and cell-based NAB-assays.

Biopharmaceuticals, such as antibodies, peptides and recombinant proteins, have the potential to induce an anti-drug antibody (ADA) response. The development of ADA can cause allergic or anaphylactic reactions, reduction in efficacy, or induction of autoimmunity.
Factors affecting immunogenicity include:
•Similarity to self proteins
•Glycosylation status
•Excipients
•Route of administration
•Dosing schedule
•Target

Eurofins Bioanalytical Services offers a comprehensive suite of capabilities to match any scale of immunogenicity project.

Method Transfer

Transfer and optimization of non-validated or validated client-developed assays.

Method Development

To provide the best analytical solution for the broadest range of matrices and species, we:
•Develop and validate assays that have analytical ranges appropriate for what is expected in the study samples
•Develop assays that are both specific and sensitive
•Provide support for adaptation of any commercially available reagents or critical reagent generation and purification including the generation of antibodies to be used for capture or detection reagents
•Assess method feasibility in multiple technology platforms

Validation

Validation of analytical methods is crucial in generating data to be used in support of regulatory submissions. Following the most up-to-date industry guidelines, we offer a fully consultative and comprehensive assay validation or cross-validation service. We validate using a fit-for-purpose approach as appropriate for the nature of the assay well as the stage in drug development.

Sample Analysis

Using the latest industry guidance we apply a tiered immunogenicity testing methodology accompanied with statistical data analysis & support. The steps we use to measure ADA are:
•Screening assay
•Confirmatory assay
•Neutralization assay
•Characterization assays (isotype, affinity, etc.)

As patents on many major biologics are expected to expire by 2016, it's estimated that roughly half of the large molecule therapeutics market, representing an estimated $92B in 2010, will be open to competition from large molecule generics, often referred to as biosimilars or follow-on biologics.

As patents on many major biologics are expected to expire by 2016, it's estimated that roughly half of the large molecule therapeutics market, representing an estimated $92B in 2010, will be open to competition from large molecule generics, often referred to as biosimilars or follow-on biologics.

Over 50 biosimilars/copy-biologics, covering a fairly limited selection of branded drugs, are in the clinic. However, most of these are restricted to emerging markets. Comparatively, only 14 biosimilar approvals have occurred in Europe and none in the United States. It is expected that biosimilar development in these markets will accelerate driven by the emergence of regulatory guidelines, the impending patent cliff and the push for cheaper medications.

Industry Leading Biosimilars Experience

With our regulatory knowledge and experience in product characterization, pharmacokinetics and immunogenicity, for both innovator and biosimilars, we carry your project from Discovery phase through Phase III studies and beyond.

Cytokine release syndrome (CRS) is an adverse event on administration of biotherapeutics, typified by the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including TNFα, IFNγ, IL-6 etc.

It causes "flu-like" symptoms, including pyrexia, nausea, rigors, but can be more severe with capillary leak syndrome resulting in hypotension and organ damage.

The most severe example in recent years was with the CD8 super-agonist TGN1412.
Drug companies should evaluate cytokine release if

increasing importance of testing
The only regulatory CRS guidance comes from an EMA sponsored meeting; stresses the importance of CRS for immune-active products, design to be relevant to MoA, methods to be ‘suitably validated’
Positive CRS is information, not a stop signal
