ForteBio, Inc. Key Developments

Pall ForteBio LLC Launches Octet K2 System

Pall ForteBio LLC announced the launch of the Octet K2 system, a new entry point into the Octet line of label-free interaction analysis systems. Available in Asia and Europe, the Octet K2 system offers high-performance, budget-friendly kinetic characterization of antibody, protein, and small molecule binding interactions. Using Pall ForteBio’s Bio-Layer Interferometry (BLI) technology, the systems in the Octet family offer a fluidics-free alternative to surface plasmon resonance (SPR) with a variety of off-the-shelf Dip and Read™ biosensors for more rapid assay development and optimization. The Octet K2 system increases accessibility to BLI in a low-throughput, 2-channel instrument that provides exquisite binding affinity data, even for molecules down to 150 daltons in size.

ForteBio, Inc. Launches New Interaction Analysis System

ForteBio, Inc. has launched the Octet HTX system, the new member of the Octet line of label-free interaction analysis systems. The Octet HTX system addresses the acute industry need for increased analysis speed and sample throughput when characterizing large numbers of therapeutic candidates, the company said. Octet systems provide unique insights into drug-target binding interactions, insights that are used to fine-tune the affinity and specificity of drug molecules. The Octet HTX instrument performs kinetic analysis of up to 96 binding interactions simultaneously, a capability offered by no other stand-alone label-free platform. In addition, the Octet HTX performs full 96-well plate determinations of protein concentrations in as little as 2 minutes.

Avacta Group plc Announces Expansion of Collaboration with Fortebio

Avacta Group plc announced that it has extended its commercial collaboration with ForteBio. Avacta has entered into a distribution agreement with ForteBio for the sale of Optim, the group's protein analysis product, in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Optim has been developed to accelerate and reduce the cost of drug development by providing early analysis of compounds to identify the best candidates and to define the optimal processing conditions.  In the critical stages of pre-formulation, stability testing and formulation of biopharmaceutical drugs, Optim delivers vital information tens of times faster than other approaches, using sample sizes less than a hundredth the size of those needed by existing techniques. Optim comprises a benchtop instrument, analysis software and a single-use sample holder that leads to recurring consumables revenues.
