ADC Synthesis

We have prepared >20,000 ADC molecules for our customers. In addition, we have also scaled up hundred gram of ADC candidate compounds for further studies.

  • Considerable experience in the synthesis of novel payloads and their analogs.
  • We have a large collection of frequently used linkers in house, including PEG linkers, alkyl linkers, click chemistry linkers, and rigid linkers.
  • We have also assembled a collection of over 30 series of attachment sites.

ADC-related Platform for Preclinical Research

WuXi Biology provides ADC-related in vitro assays and in vivo models:

  • Target validation and antibody binding assay
  • Antibody internalization assay
  • Cell viability assay
  • Bystander killing assay
  • ADCC and ADCP assay
  • CDX and PDX models covering multiple targets (HER2, CLDN18.2, CD30, CD33, BCMA, Trop-2, CD79b, Nectin-4, etc.)

ADC-related in vitro assays

Target validation and antibody binding assay

Cell viability assay_SK-BR-3

Antibody internalization assay

Bystander Killing Assay

Bystander killing occurs when the drug from an ADC is released either from the target cell following
internalization and degradation of the ADC or release of the drug within the extracellular space.

Antibody-dependent cell-mediated phagocytosis (ADCP)

  • Effector: Macrophage isolated from PBMC of healthy donor
  • Target: SK-BR-3 cell line, labeled with 50 nM CellTrace Violet
  • E:T= 8:1
