Our bioconjugation capabilities can be tailored to meet your unique research objectives based on our comprehensive know-how. CSIRO offers additional in-house expertise in synthesis (including GMP manufacturing of biologics), in-depth characterisation, purification, assay development and testing, process development, and technology transfer.

Our bioconjugation services include targeting biomolecules (e.g., proteins, aptamers, peptides, etc.) to chelators (for theranostics), cytotoxic drugs, fluorescent tags, bespoke polymers, drug delivery systems, or surfaces (such as biosensors and medical implants).
