Our Sole Focus:
Human Therapeutic Antibody Discovery
We understand how to position your discovery program for success while navigating through potential pitfalls, because we have years of experience in generation of therapeutic-quality antibodies from rodents, both wild-type and transgenic.
We work with companies large and small, ranging from companies operating virtually to established companies wanting to enhance their existing capabilities.
Our team of experts will become your team of experts, creating a tailored therapeutic discovery project based on the proven AlivaMab Mouse platform.
