Contract Research Laboratory
Establishment of a Contract Research Laboratory
BioXpedia A/S is a contract research laboratory founded by CEO Mogens Kruhøffer in 2016. Our mission is to support biological and clinical research, by offering our expertise and laboratory analyses to the research community. With our laboratory analyses and biostatistical services, we want to facilitate and accelerate research projects from idea to validated data.
The first laboratory service offered in BioXpedia was protein screening, where we used panels developed by the Swedish company Olink. With each of the panels, 92 proteins can be detected in just 1 µl sample. The protein screening was (and is) widely used in clinical research, to investigate disease development or treatment response in a cohort, with the aim to develop a protein biomarker signature. Subsequently we have decided also to offer another targeted protein analysis, by using the Meso Scale Discovery kits.
Gene Expression Analysis
Soon it became clear that gene expression analysis were also highly requested and this led us to the natural choice also offering qPCR analysis, where we have the option to do multiplex analysis of targeted genes,- up to 96 gene targets in one run. In addition we also wanted to offer a broader gene expression analysis and for this purpose the panels from the company NanoString were useful. NanoString has developed focused gene expression panels, with up to 770 gene assays per panel. Recently we have extended our services in transcriptomics to include also RNA library prep and sequencing.
Along with the gene expression analysis we started to offer targeted genotyping services. With the option of analysing 5-96 SNPs per sample in a single run, the service became very requested, for both smaller studies and larger cohort studies.
From the very beginning we were focused on delivering validated and meaningful data back to researchers. As we realized that a few initial biostatistical analysis of the data were very appreciated by researchers, we developed a biostatistical services packet as an option for data generated in our laboratory. We now offer both a basic statistical packet as well as tailored biostatistical analysis.
We continue to develop our services in close collaboration with researchers related to specific projects. Our attitude is to be open minded and flexible. Besides the mentioned services above, we are currently involved in in- vitro drug testing and in large scale sample preparation (RNA extraction).
BioXpedia welcome your research project!
