About The Native Antigen Company

From its humble beginnings in 2010, The Native Antigen Company has become one of the world’s leading suppliers of reagents, that enable research into vaccine development and diagnostics for emerging and endemic infectious diseases. We specialise in the development and manufacture of native and recombinant viral and bacterial antigens, antibodies and immunoassays, alongside bespoke product development and custom manufacturing using proprietary mammalian cell expression system VirtuE™, which are critical component requirements for diagnostic (IVD), pharmaceutical and academic sectors.

The Native Antigen Company’s team have decades of experience in the isolation and purification of native antigens and high-yield mammalian cell expression systems, ensuring conformity to native type. The Company’s high-quality reagents have been widely adopted by leading pharmaceutical, in vitro diagnostic assay manufacturers, and academic groups in cutting-edge vaccine research and serology, where correct folding and glycosylation are vital. We are proud to be one of the first companies globally to offer antigens for SARS-CoV-2 and continue to play an important role in supporting the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We understand that agility matters, maintaining strong relationships with industry and academia to maximise our responsiveness and ensure a reliable and excellent service. Building on our recognised expertise in infectious diseases, we are expanding our portfolio to include a range of disease-state markers and other critical reagents for human health.
