BIOTECH & FARMA

There is a continuous need to find new biomarkers for diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s or other aging-related diseases to which telomeres are directly related and also constitute a powerful tool.

Life Length is the leader in telomere biology also offering additional solutions for clinical/preclinical studies as well as drug discovery.

Our projects are tailored to the wide variety of biotech and pharma companies. We participate in very diverse projects such as:

  • Telomere measurements
  • Cell labelling and sorting
  • Drug development
  • Telomerase monitoring for oncology projects
  • Tissue engineering and organoid development
  • Cell and gene therapies development
  • Cultured meat
  • Immune response monitoring (vaccines, transplants, allergies…)

APPLICATION EXAMPLES

Vaccine immune response (EliSpot)

Telomere analysis

Donor selection in cell therapies

Telomerase activity monitoring

Identify specific cytokines after antigen stimulation

Telomerase activity inhibition by oncology therapy

Telomeres in cells in vitro cultured meat

Cells from the donor with the longest telomeres will take longer to achieve senescence

Frequently asked questions

What type of samples can we test?2022-06-08T12:26:16+02:00

We can process any type of cell or tissue: MSCs, iPSCs, T cells, NK cells, xenografts, biopsies, blood, etc. We can also measure specific cell types and targets within the same sample, e.g.: CD3+, PDL1 /PD1, differentiate mouse and human cells, etc.

How is the Logistics process?2022-06-08T12:24:46+02:00

We receive samples from all over the world, every day. It is a very easy process and we will happily guide you through it.

How robust are the measurements?2022-06-08T12:23:36+02:00

We follow very strict quality controls. As an example, for our proprietary TAT technology:

  • Clinically validated.
  • Measurements performed in quintuplicates.
  • Seven control cell lines.
  • Intra-assay coefficient < 5%.
  • More than 10.000 individual telomeres measured.
What type of assays can we perform?2022-06-08T12:20:27+02:00

Despite being experts on telomere biology, we routinely perform measurements of hundreds of other biomarkers. Additionally, we can develop protocols for markers that are currently not on our portfolio. Let us know of your needs.

What information do we need from your samples?2022-06-08T12:16:00+02:00

We understand that our clients want to protect their intellectual property. We do not require any confidential information from your side and we will assign specific codes for identifying your samples in the lab to guarantee their blinding.
