Molecular analyses in ATMP development

Support at every phase for well-informed decisions

We accelerate time-to-market with rapid and reliable data, enabling informed stage-gate decisions and preparing submission-ready reports. We excel at identifying and monitoring nucleic acid biomarkers essential for understanding target engagement, efficacy, potency, and safety of ATMPs. 

ATMP

In early discovery, we identify valuable biomarkers for candidate selection, lead optimization, and patient stratification. In addition, we run quantitative analyses to provide the necessary data for vector evaluation and optimization, including tissue specificity and potency for lead candidate selection.

We offer a spectrum of assay validation for regulatory filings and confident decision-making, ranging from fully validated assays to fit-for-purpose assays for covering various bioanalyses, including PK/PD, biodistribution, and viral shedding.

With a state-of-the-art instrumentation fleet, automated platforms, and an integrated Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), we conduct high-throughput analysis of clinical nucleic acid biomarkers for patient stratification, efficacy, and safety endpoint.

Preclinical

We offer a spectrum of assay validation for regulatory filings and confident decision-making, ranging from fully validated assays to fit-for-purpose assays for covering various bioanalyses, including PK/PD, biodistribution, and viral shedding.

Clinical

We use the highest quality reagents, adhere to dedicated controls, standardize and harmonize all processes per technical requirements like the MIQE guidelines. We deliver rapid, robust and reproducible results that are submission-ready.

compliant bioanalysis

Accurate and reproducible data

GCLP-compliant and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory

TATAA Biocenter is accredited by the Swedish Board of Accreditation and Conformity Assessment (SWEDAC) for complying with ISO/IEC 17025 standards. We also adhere to Good Clinical Laboratory Practice (GCLP) guidelines, which are international quality standards governing the analysis of samples from clinical trials.

GCLP validation is mandatory to demonstrate the accuracy, reliability, and consistency of clinical assays. The standards cover all aspects of laboratory work in clinical studies, including study planning, execution, monitoring, documentation, archiving, and reporting. This rigorous process assures both the sponsors when submitting data for new ATMP approvals, and regulatory authorities when reviewing the data, that it is generated in a standardized manner.

From sample to results

Expert in nucleic acid sample preparation and analyses

We specialize in quantifying RNA and DNA with low-copy numbers in diverse biological samples. Our expertise includes RNA/DNA extraction from complex tissues and biofluids, assay design for challenging targets (e.g. highly homologous sequences, short RNAs), and complex data analysis. We offer assay design, validation, and regulatory compliance tailored to your needs, whether for fit-for-purpose or full validation.

Extraction
The extraction is critical, capturing the target sequences unbiasedly and removing downstream inhibitors. We extract DNA and RNA of various lengths, ranging from miRNA and siRNA to entire genomes, using manual and automated workflows tailored to sponsor requests.
Sample types

We have experience in DNA and RNA extraction from diverse biofluids and tissues, excreta, LNPs, various sample tools, and biosafety level 1 and 2 agents. We can extract DNA and RNA from fresh, frozen, and fixed tissues and blood with multiple anticoagulants.

Nucleic acid biomarkers

We have extensive experience analyzing nucleic acid biomarkers like genetic SNPs, therapeutic RNA types such as siRNA and mRNA, and short RNAs like miRNA.

High quality data

Assay design is essential, knowing that what you measure mirrors reality. We control every step and adhere to technical standardizations such as the MIQE guidelines, regulatory requirements, and the latest scientific reports to provide the highest data reliability.

method validation

Accelerate drug development with validated assays

Validated bioanalysis is essential throughout the entire drug development process.

Conducting fit-for-purpose validations in the initial stages of discovery is key. These validations offer valuable insights of expected assay performance before undertaking more comprehensive method validation processes. A validated PCR assay is essential to ensure the accuracy and reliability of results and ensures that the assay meets the client’s needs, study requirements, and assay criteria under defined operating conditions. Our assay validations ensure dependable data for making stage-gate decisions and preparing regulatory filings.

A validated assay is a valuable asset.
