AlivaMab Discovery Services Expands Drug Discovery Platform into Developability Assessment

Expansion gives AlivaMab Discovery Services the ability to streamline the transition of drug discovery programs into development

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – December 14, 2020 – AlivaMab Discovery Services, ("ADS") a leader in discovery of superior antibody therapeutics, announced the expansion of its integrated platform, which now features capabilities to assess the developability of antibody therapeutics. Leveraging Alivalign software and biophysical methods, ADS will deliver assessments on therapeutic antibody specificity and manufacturability to streamline the transition from discovery to development. With this new offering, ADS will provide its partners a rapid and integrated solution for discovering and advancing fully human therapeutic antibodies towards the clinic.

"With our focus solely on therapeutic antibody discovery, every step of our workflow is designed to rapidly generate diverse panels of lead candidate antibodies that meet the target product profile, including the developability profiles required for successful drug development. By providing fully human lead antibodies and backups that are characterized for developability, including specificity, stability, expression and manufacturability, ADS provides a fully integrated approach in lead selection" said John “Lippy” Lippincott, PhD, Vice-President of Research of AlivaMab Discovery Services. “By expanding ADS’ offerings with the addition of the Alivalign software package and the suite of biophysical methods – in combination with AlivaMab® Mouse, the only transgenic animal designed to optimize antibody drug discovery and development – ADS can more efficiently advance our partners’ projects towards the clinic.”
