About

Our mission is to shape the future of medicine by providing powerful reagents for research and diagnostics, and by developing safe and efficacious medicines.
 
At Avacta we have developed Affimer® technology, an engineered alternative to antibodies. Based on a small protein, Affimer technology can be quickly developed to bind with high specificity and affinity to a wide range of targets.
 
Affimer proteins can be developed as therapeutic molecules and can be used in a wide range of other life sciences applications in research and diagnostics. 

"What really excites me, and drives the company, is the opportunity to change the way life scientists explore the complexity of the proteome and the myriad of interactions that define us as humans."
