Nona Biosciences, a global pioneer of technology innovation and antibody discovery and development solutions announced that it has entered into a strategic collaboration with GeneQuantum Healthcare to advance the early discovery of next-generation bioconjugates.
Under the terms of the collaboration, Nona Biosciences will integrate GeneQuantum’s exclusive and innovative iLDC (intelligent Ligase-dependent Conjugation) and iGDC (intelligent Glycotransferase-dependent conjugation) platforms, with Nona Biosciences’ Harbour Mice® platform and cutting-edge technologies, to further enhance technology platform capabilities, providing global partners with a one-stop solution for the early discovery of next-generation bioconjugates.
“Leveraging our cutting-edge antibody technologies and extensive experience in antibody research and development, Nona is committed to providing innovative, diverse and customized solutions for preclinical drug development. These efforts have garnered widespread recognition and appreciation from our partners,” said Jingsong Wang, MD, PhD, Chairman of Nona Biosciences, “We look forward to collaborating with GeneQuantum Healthcare to continuously enhance the capabilities of innovative bioconjugate drug research and development, empowering global partners to advance their ADC drug R&D initiatives.”
“Through years of interdisciplinary and differentiated innovation, GeneQuantum has developed iLDC and iGDC platforms as the core technology for bioconjugate drugs, offering a comprehensive solution for ADC drug R&D and manufacture. Overcoming the challenges prevalent in the current ADC field, such as heterogeneity, poor stability, process complexity, difficulty in scale-up manufacture, these leading technologies significantly reduce the production cost, improve the drug quality, and increase the ADC drug global accessibility.” said Gang Qin, PhD, Founder and Chairman of GeneQuantum Healthcare, “We are honored to enter a strategic collaboration with Nona Bioscience on early screening and discovery of bioconjugate drugs. By leveraging GeneQuantum’s conjugation technology and Nona’s extensive drug development experience, we believe that this collaboration will substantially improve high-quality and high-throughput screening for the early discovery of ADC drugs.”
