Gyros AB is a Swedish-based company located in Uppsala. The company’s automated platform, Gyrolab®, is a versatile analytical tool that dramatically reduces the time required to optimize and execute immunoassays. Time for assay optimization is often cut from weeks, to a matter of days. This results in increased efficiency in process development and in clinical evaluation of therapeutic proteins.
Gyrolab enables assays to be conducted with a significantly reduced background, increased dynamic range and with higher throughput. All this is achieved using only nanoliter volumes of reagents and sample. More data can be generated in less time and with higher precision, consequently improving productivity and effectiveness. Applications span the entire spectrum for immunoassays and Gyrolab is now firmly established as the preferred solution for pharmacokinetic (PK) assays in the development of therapeutic proteins.
Many major pharmaceutical companies and service providers— CMOs/CROs—have already implemented multiple Gyrolab platforms to boost their drug development process and to meet increasing regulatory demands on testing.
