The team is experienced in conducting interdisciplinary research at the intersection of life sciences and nanotechnology. Our scientists have expertise in such disciplines as biochemistry, biological chemistry, genetic engineering, immunology, and also in some areas of microbiology.
Laboratory equipment and research experience allow the implementation of ambitious research projects and performance of advanced analyses. We offer a wide range of services including testing of the biological activity of various substances, production of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies, biofunctionalization of nanomaterials, development of diagnostic tests and many others.
- Generation of hybridoma cell lines that produce monoclonal antibodies
- Preparation and purification of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies against broad spectrum of antigens, including polysaccharides
- Preparation and characterization of antigens and macromolecules of microbiological origin (isolation, purification, characterization of bacterial polysaccharides and lipopolysaccharides, proteins and other compounds)
- Preparation of various conjugates (e.g. antibodies with fluorescent tags, polysaccharides with protein or other carriers including nanoparticles, haptens with proteins, polysaccharides, synthetic polymers, etc.)
- Immobilization of biomolecules (e.g. proteins, polysaccharides, bacterial endotoxins) and haptens on glass or polymeric surfaces, on nanoparticles and other nanostructured materials
- Wide range of ELISA-type tests, functional group analysis in biological and synthetic materials
