Facilitating innovation and creating efficiencies while maximizing your capacities in research and development
Custom product development is the cornerstone capability from which Grace Bio-Labs’ family of products evolved. This service allows researchers to create scientifically relevant experimental designs to advance the field of biomarker discovery in precision medicine. Grace Bio-Labs has developed a proprietary repertoire of manufacturing materials and methods that meet customer specifications with regards to tolerances, bio-compatibility, and assay conditions.
Our scientists partner with our customers to rapidly build prototypes that enable scaled development and manufacturing. As a development partner, we collaborate with research laboratories, biotechnology companies, private researchers, and pharmaceutical companies to advance scientific discovery.
How can we help you develop research strategies to meet your specific needs?
- Fluidics Design
- Nitrocellulose Coatings
- Specialized Assay Reagents
- OEM Collaborations
The simple and elegant designs of our products allow for innovative and distinctive research and molecular analysis. Our fluidics designs are characterized by their abilities to:
- Facilitate rapid and economical setup for cell and molecular analysis
- Assure quality and efficiency with their biocompatibility and chemical resistance
- Incorporate the use of materials that do not contribute to fluorescent background to facilitate the expanded use of fluorescent labels
- Provide devices for smaller scale experiments, thereby equally meeting the compatibility needs for both robotic liquid handling for high throughput and smaller scale phases
Grace Bio-Labs invented the porous nitrocellulose (PNC) film-coating technology that underlies the Film-Slide and Film-Plate product lines sold by Grace Bio-Labs. ONCYTEⓇ Film was originally invented to increase the sensitivity of in situ assays for proteins and RNAs in cells in a process we call Cyto Coherent Transfer. The replacement of conventional glass slides with Film-Slides for these in situ applications increased assay sensitivity by preventing the diffusional loss of analyte from cells during fixation and processing.
Since that time, Film-Slides have become widely used in various microarray applications utilizing proteins, peptides, glycoproteins, and carbohydrates. As research continues to expand, modifications and new applications continue to grow as well. Grace Bio-Labs remains at the forefront of exploring how to support these evolving discoveries.
