Rekom Biotech is a biotechnology company focused on the design and production of recombinant antigens and antibodies for in vitro diagnostics (IVD) of human and animal infectious diseases, as well as type I allergic disorders. We offer high quality, validated and versatile raw material, suitable for use in the various platforms available on the market, among others: second and third generation ELISAs, immunochromatography, chemiluminescence, Western blot, dot-blot, etc.
Our recombinant antigens are produced in different expression systems. Our main aim is the optimisation of the antigenicity and the reduction of potential specificity problems. In order to reach this goal, we validate the antigen immunoreactivity towards specimen sera.
We also offer a sorbent for anti-cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants (CCD) antibodies, with which anti-CCD antibodies will be kidnapped, and the specificity of the assay will increase.
Rekom Biotech also has R&D support services for IVD manufacturers that want to develop a new assay and cannot find the right raw material. Within this service, we develop gene amplification and expression services, optimisation-expression studies, culture scale-up in bioreactors by using a fed-batch mode, process development strategies, downstream processing and immunologic studies by using Western Blot and ELISA assays.
