Our mission is to create a high quality, powerful set of tools to help Life Scientists accelerate the understanding of biology and disease and to help them apply these advances to diagnosis and treatment.

At Avacta Life Sciences we have developed the Affimer® , a revolutionary new alternative to antibodies and aptamers. Based on a small protein scaffold that can be engineered to bind with high specificity and affinity to a wide range of protein targets, Affimer reagents are engineered affinity proteins that are set to revolutionise the reagents market.

Affimer technology can be used for a wide range of applications in diagnostics, drug / biomarker discovery and biotech research & development. They can also act as therapeutic agents.
