The Native Antigen Company expands into new development and production facilities and introduces new services
- Expansion doubles manufacturing capacity
- New assay development facilities
- New suite of services includes immunoassay development
Oxford, UK, 2nd May 2017: The Native Antigen Company (NAC) announced today that it has relocated into larger facilities, in Oxfordshire, UK. The new building has purpose-built laboratories and doubles the Company’s manufacturing capacity. This will increase the speed of new product development within NAC’s core business of infectious disease antigens and antibodies. The new laboratory space also enables NAC to add custom immunoassays to its offering to support customer’s ELISA assay and lateral flow device requirements.
The new suite of laboratories has been established to satisfy increasing commercial demands and accommodate NAC’s growing R&D pipeline. The move facilitates the expansion of the Company’s custom services for recombinant protein production, based on its proprietary mammalian cell expression system. The HEK293 expression system used at NAC has been used to prepare a wide range of complex recombinant proteins, that have been shown to be glycosylated and to demonstrate functional activity.
