High-throughput reagent pairing and PK assay development using an automated nanoliter-scale immunoassay platform



Assay development for preclinical and clinical biotherapeutic PK studies can sometimes be tedious and time consuming, delaying project timelines. This webinar will present a case study highlighting a fit-for-purpose and fast-turnaround reagent pairing experimental design using the Gyrolab xPand workstation. The case study will also cover the method optimization and troubleshooting process that led to the development of a fully qualified PK assay using the Gyrolab Viewer software. Compared to manual plate-based ELISA, the automated Gyrolab platform reduces manual labor, assay incubation time and reagent consumption. These advantages significantly minimize human error and enhance workflow efficiency.

What will you learn?

  • How a novel, fit-for purpose and fast-turnaround reagent-pairing approach is useful for PK immunoassay optimization
  • How a microfluidic, fully automated immunoassay platform can improve biotherapeutic PK assay workflow efficiency
  • How Gyrolab Viewer software provides unique tools for assay troubleshooting and optimization

Who may this interest?

  • Bioanalytical scientists in biologics development and bioprocessing
  • Preclinical and clinical CROs
  • Bioanalytical support groups in pharma and biotech
