Innovative Tools for Biotherapeutics Development

Development of a single drug, whether it is a new chemical entity, biotherapeutic, or genetic/cellular therapy, requires significant investment of resources. Each step of the process from early discovery through production and delivery must be fully explored, characterized, and understood to prevent issues resulting from cell stress, cell death, protein aggregation, and factors affecting reliable manufacturing of the drug. Whether you work in drug discovery, upstream, or downstream bioprocessing, Enzo offers a range of products to help you maintain cell line viability, optimize and monitor product integrity, and maximize yield.

Optimize and Monitor Product Integrity

PROTEOSTAT® Protein Aggregation Assay

The PROTEOSTAT® Protein Aggregation Assay is a simple, sensitive, homogeneous fluorescent microplate assay. The novel molecular rotor dye used detects a broad range of different protein aggregates from visible to subvisible particles.
  • Delivers superior results when compared to conventional protein detection dyes (Sypro Orange, Thioflavin T, ANS, Congo Red)
  • Works over a wide pH and ionic strength range and is compatible with commonly used buffers and excipients
  • Provides a convenient, complementary orthogonal method for cross-validation of instrumentation-intensive techniques
  • Useful assay to troubleshoot protein damage, from protein development through manufacturing stages

PROTEOSTAT® Thermal Shift Stability Assay

The PROTEOSTAT® Thermal Shift Stability Assay is a rapid, simple screening method based on a novel molecular rotor dye which detects protein aggregation. The assay does not require any prior knowledge of protein structure, sequence or ligand binding activity, and is performed on a thermally regulated fluorimeter or RT-PCR instrument. A related kit is available for the screening of optimal protein refolding parameters.

Sensitive detection of linear and branched PEG molecules

Complete Solutions for Process Optimization

Environmental variations in cell culture conditions can lead to cell line instability, cellular stress and/or cell death. Monitoring these processes is crucial to ensure the efficiency and functionality of small-scale cultures or large-scale bioreactors. Enzo offers complete solutions for monitoring a variety of cell processes.

Cell Death

Simplify your Cell Death Analysis

Enzo provides a variety of tools to detect the onset of cell death pathways, including sensitive fluorescent probes for detection of apoptosis, necrosis, and autophagy. These assays can help detect subtle changes in the health of adherent or suspension cell cultures used for production of biotherapeutics, and assess toxicity during drug development.

Autophagy and Apoptosis Assays

Oxidative Stress

Sensitive Assays for Oxidative Stress

Changes in mitochondrial function and glucose metabolism can adversely affect cell line viability, decreasing protein yield in cultured cells and long-term efficacy of cell based therapies. Enzo provides an industry-leading portfolio of kits and reagents for monitoring oxidative stress, including sensitive, high-throughput compatible assays for hypoxia, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and mitochondrial dysfunction.

High-throughput analysis of mitotoxicity

Cell Line Instability

Reliable Detection of Cell Line Instability

Changes in gene expression due to endogenous or transgene copy number loss, or epigenetic suppression can affect cell line stability and yield. Our portfolio of products for detection of cell line instability include fluorescent labeling kits for high-resolution array CGH, RNA amplification and labeling, and DNA methylation.

Superior dye incorporation results in more accurate detection

Small Molecules for Bioprocessing Applications

Cell culture and process optimization can benefit from the addition of several compounds which increase biotherapeutic yield or reduce the risk of cell line instability. Enzo offers an extensive collection of high-purity, cost-effective small molecules and proteins which can be used to optimize the production process both on a small and a large scale.
