Novel solutions driving diagnostics
The sensitivity of a diagnostic test relies on high-performance reagents. Optimer™ reagents are next-generation aptamers that function as ideal affinity reagents for a range of diagnostic tests and assays, including ELISA, lateral flow devices, biosensors, and affinity chromatography.
Aptamer Group offers aptamer-based reagents and services to diagnostic developers to assist in the creation of leading-edge diagnostic tests and assays. Our Optimer technology provides robust antibody alternatives tailored to your specific assay. Optimers are ideal for customers who wish to diversify their product portfolio, develop new lines of products, develop diagnostic kits with standardised reagents, extended shelf-life, or remove the need for cold chain supply. The benefits of the Optimer selection process mean that these assays can be made available for targets previously seen as difficult for these assays.
Defined by the nucleic acid sequence and chemically synthesised, the batch-to-batch consistency of Optimer reagents is guaranteed, with a secure supply chain for the lifecycle of the diagnostic. Optimers offer improved quality, reproducibility and flexibility compared to alternative affinity reagents, to support superior diagnostic assay results.
For special diagnostic applications, our experienced R&D team can work hand-in-hand with you to develop new diagnostic assays and ensure that our aptamers perform as needed in your real-world application.
