1Conjugation Technologies

There are numerous antibody drug conjugation technologies available with each having their own benefits, though no single option is optimal for every payload and antibody. Abzena offers access to a variety of conjugation technologies for side by side evaluation. Read more >>>


There exists a range of payloads available for use in the development of antibody drug conjugates, each with their own toxicity profile and mechanism of action against specific tumour types. At Abzena, we can custom synthesise highly potent chemical payloads at our Bristol, USA, facility and can also develop biological payloads, including protein and DNA conjugates, at our Cambridge, UK, site.  Read more >>>

1Analysis and Characterisation

Abzena’s state-of-the-art laboratories are equipped with an array of analytical instrumentation to enable full characterisation and purity determination of our products. Our capabilities range from extensive chromatographic purification equipment allowing the most challenging of separations, to our dedicated analytical suite including LCMS, MALDI-ToF and NMR spectrometers to confirm the purity, homogeneity and stability of our ADC products.  Read more >>>


Abzena San Diego and Bristol sites offer large manufacturing capabilities for antibody drug conjugates at multiple scales including non-GMP and GMP manufacturing.  Read more >>>
