The market for therapeutic antibodies continues to grow,1,2 fueled in part by the financial returns from products already on the market, the opening for biosimilars as successful products come off-patent, and advances in technologies for discovery and development. With this growth, teams developing therapeutic antibodies are under a lot of pressure to reach first-in-human studies as quickly as possible. At the same time, those antibodies must be robust, efficacious, and safe.

New technologies and scientifically experienced service partners are a powerful resource that can help therapeutic antibody development teams maximize data quality in the minimum amount of time.

With a proven track record of innovation, quality, and customer support that spans decades, Bio-Rad has helped leading and emerging biopharma companies advance their antibody discovery and development pipelines.

We are ready to use this wealth of expertise to help you and your teams develop safe and effective therapeutic antibodies as efficiently as possible.
