Linker Technologies

We offer services for designing and synthesizing ADC linkers and linker-drug conjugates. Based on the drug release mechanism, we design & synthesize different ADC linkers: Cleavable and non-cleavable linkers, self-immolation tracer-free linkers, and peptide linkers.

Conjugation Technologies

Our team carries out ADC conjugation services to accelerate the production of ADC constructs with quality attributes.
Amine (Lys) conjugation, thiol (Cys) conjugation, site-specific conjugation, enzymatic conjugation, glycoconjugation and click chemistry.


According to clients’ requirements, we optimize payloads such as cytotoxic, non-cytotoxic, and biological payloads. Our team handles a wide range of cytotoxic payloads, including:

  • Auristatins (MMAE and MMAF)
  • Tubulysin
  • PBD Dimer
  • Maytansinoids (DM-1, DMO4)
  • Duocarmycin
  • Exatecans

ADC Discovery (Therapeutics and Tools or Reagents) and Development

Our ADC discovery programs are customized as per the target biology and desired mechanism of action. Specific screening strategies are designed and employed at a stage as early as antibody generation. Some of the early stage activities include screening and design of mAbs for internalization (or lack of it), effector function, off-site localization and half-life.

Rapid and comprehensive scouting of the linker-payload technology space can be plugged-in to identify the most desirable combinations of mAb, linker-payload and conjugation strategies. Stage appropriate in vitro screening and detailed evaluation of lead ADC molecules is carried out using customized assay platforms.

We also provide in vivo therapeutic evaluation, PK, and rodent toxicology assessment support for ADC candidates with appropriate bioanalytical methods customized for each program. Conjugation and purification process development takes into account each component of the ADC molecule. Quality, scalability, safety and cost-effectiveness concerns are addressed at each stage of process development.

ADC Analysis

A biomolecule is complex as an ADC and demands analytical assessment to ensure safety and quality. Routinely determined attributes during ADC analysis are

  • DAR average
  • Free-drug
  • Conjugation site
  • Aggregation
  • Fragmentation
  • Endotoxin
  • Antigen binding affinity
  • Plasma stability
  • In vitro potency

Neoantigen Specific T cells For Cancer Immunotherapy

Neoantigen specific T cells for cellular cancer immunotherapy An effective anti-tumor immune response in human is marked by presence of T cells reactive against neoantigens. Neoantigens are HLA-bound unique peptides arise from tumor-specific somatic mutations. Neoantigens are highly immunogenic because they are not present in normal tissues and hence...

Alternate end-game strategies towards Nirmatrelvir synthesis: Defining a continuous flow process for the preparation of an anti-COVID drug


Scalable alternate end-game strategies for the synthesis of the anti-COVID drug molecule Nirmatrelvir (1,PF-07321332) have been described. The first involves a direct synthesis of 1 via amidation of the carboxylic acid 7 (suitably activated as a mixed anhydride with either pivaloyl chloride or T3P) with the ...
