Application noteSee All
We have developed Affimers to a recombinant form of the Zika virus NS1 protein that is diagnostic of Zika infection at the early, acute phase. In just 16 weeks we generated specific Affimer binders to this challenging target, and have demonstrated their effectiveness in ELISA/immunoassay format for specific detection of the Zika NS1 antigen at clinically relevant concentrations.

Preliminary Results for the Year Ended 31 July 2015.
This case study outlines Affimer technology for the generation of cancer immune checkpoint inhibitors, to demonstrate the rapid identification of a number of biotherapeutic candidate molecules.
A case study looking at the findings of a published study on the HIF-1α/p300 protein–protein interaction, which plays a key role in tumor metabolism and thus represents a high value target for anticancer drug-development.
One of the key advantages of Affimer technology over the more established affinity reagents is the ability to tailor specificity and affinity to suit your needs. Find out more details in our case study.

Affimer biotherapeutics are a new protein scaffold with great potential for the generation of biotherapeutics. Based on the human protease inhibitor Stefin A, the scaffold is small (12kDa), lacks any post translational modifications such as disulphide bonds and glycosylation.
This poster reports the identification and initial characterisation of highly specific binders to the Zika NS1 protein.
Purification of tag-free proteins, a vital step for many research and industrial applications, is commonly facilitated by affinity chromatography where the target protein is captured from a complex mixture by an affinity resin and then eluted in an appropriate buffer.

Conventional immunoassays rely on antibodies that provide high affinity, specificity, and selectivity against a target analyte.
Selection methods are used to identify Affimers that recognise α-helix mimicking
To enable multiplexed protein analysis through the use of microarrays, reliable molecules capable of specifically binding to a protein of interest with high affinity are required. Further, this specificity and affinity must be retained upon immobilization to the microarray surface.
