Research & Development

Equine Biologicals

Consists of a team of scientists from various Biological disciplines with extensive knowledge on purification of biological products, their characterization and form the necessary link between the research lab. and commercial scale production. This department basically deals with two classes of equine products namely anti-toxins (such as Anti Snake Venom Serum) and immunoglobulins (such as Antithymocyte Globulin).

Capabilities

  • - Purification & characterization of antigens for immunization
  • - Cryopreservation
  • - Designing Mixtures and Immunisation Regimens for maximum antibody titre development
  • - Purification of immunoglobulins from crude plasma with high specific activity
  • - Standardisation and validation of analytical methods and alternates to the use of animals
  • - Development of Cell based assay systems
  • - Development of stable, high yielding, virus inactivated, highly purified manufacturing processes.
  • - Development of stable formulations for delivery as liquid and lyophilized preparations.
  • - Preclinical development studies
  • - Clinical Studies

The work carried out on Equine Biologicals include antibodies such as:

  • - Anti Rabies serum
  • - Anti Snake venom serum
  • - Anti Tetanus serums
  • - Anti Diphtheria serum
