Thebarton, Australia, May 12, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Agilex Biolabs Pty Ltd has unveiled its new building with a ribbon cutting ceremony by The Honourable Stephen Patterson MP Minister for Trade and Investment at 12: 30pm on Thursday 17 February 2022 at 31 Dalgleish street Thebarton South Australia 5031.
Agilex launched its new laboratory to analyze large-molecule therapeutics. This has more than doubled the area of the Adelaide campus. The addition of this 2,520 m2 facility expands the service capabilities of Australia’s most technologically advanced bioanalytical partner and brings a new point of pride to South Australia.
State-of-the-art instrument platforms and increased capacity empower drug sponsors from all over the world to succeed as they expand into the novel, promising world of large molecule therapeutics. Innovative modalities such as allogeneic cell therapy and antibody-drug conjugates are opening up new avenues for treatment in areas like oncology. Specialized tools and technology are required to assess critical safety and efficacy parameters in human clinical trials of gene therapies and vaccines that have been created using genetic platforms like siRNA, miRNA and RNA. The Agilex large-molecule facility is equipped with cutting-edge bioanalytical tools and equipment, including digital droplet quantitative RTP analysis and an EliSPOT/FluoroSPOT multispot reader for high-sensitivity detection of molecule.
Before the new Agilex large-molecule facility was constructed, many drug sponsors that were conducting clinical trials in Australia had to send their clinical samples overseas to obtain important patient safety data. This support expansion reflects South Australia’s willingness and ability to handle the large influx of biopharmaceutical firms from around the globe who are bringing their clinical programs and toxicology studies to Australia.
As Agilex Biolab grows,
Adelaide can see a flourishing scientific community. Already staffed with over 150 scientists and support personnel, the comprehensive bioanalytical service headquarters will soon reach 200 welcoming experts from all over the world to its ranks.
” The world’s most skilled and driven scientists are attracted to research facilities that foster scientific progress and cutting-edge technology. Many of them will be visiting Adelaide,” said Jason Valentine, CEO Agilex Biolabs. “South Australia’s reputation as a place of innovation and success will be enhanced by the community’s support and committed investment. “
The community gave enthusiastic applause during the official opening of the new facility on Thursday afternoon. The Minister for Trade and Investment, Stephen Patterson MP, conducted the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
