Custom Services in Virology, Bacteriology and Molecular Biology
ZeptoMetrix offers a variety of customized services employing expertise in virology, bacteriology, molecular biology, immunology, and related disciplines involved with assay development and infectious disease diagnostics applications. With an extensive collection of microorganisms and expertise in sourcing and propagation of strains of interest, we excel at collaborations with research and product development scientists to develop solutions that may not be met by off-the-shelf product options.
From product concept to launch, our scientific and operational teams deliver the capabilities necessary to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions that meet the evolving needs of the diagnostics market.
ZeptoMetrix offers a variety of serology specimens for a number of infectious disease states. Panels consist of various positive and negative samples, which serve many purposes in the general laboratory environment. We have the ability to create and supply a variety of panels for applications such as technician training and proficiency assessment. Please inquire with our Customer Service Department for more information.
Materials for Further Development and Manufacturing
ZeptoMetrix has access to a wide variety of materials from various disease states as well as the know-how associated with configuring matrices representative of biological solutions. Whether involved with assay development or other activities where obtaining bulk materials for further investigation or processing are desired, we provide the customized tools that enable progress. Please inquire with our Customer Service Department for more information.
Custom Antibody Purification and Reagent Formulation
Our Immunology product line offers monoclonal antibodies and reagents that are incorporated into various testing applications. We produce or obtain antibodies from both in-house expression in hybridomas as well as through sourcing from our global network. Purification and subsequent conjugation of antibodies can be conducted on a customized basis or made as part of a standard catalogue product offering. Additionally, our ability to utilize several buffer or matrix formulations – or to collaborate with our customer to develop a unique matrix/buffer – extends our contribution to the effort of creating new and improved testing systems.
