our service for your individual demand

 

We have several service packages to fit your individual need. Every customer can define its contract research order, supported by our technology team.

In order to estimate risks, we offer a feasibility and design study based on complex computer simulation and our experience.

We offer full-service packages, ranging from design studies to full data analysis.

axiom feasibility & design study

Service status: Offering

Service description summary: 
axiom insights is able to offer a computer simulation upfront to analytics & imaging services to proof contract research usability

Service details:
small design study package, where the customer's demand is simulated in order to predict the expected sensitivity for designing the optimal test setup and final decision-making

Our value for you:

  • Fast feasibility check before high effort of in-vivo research
  • Possibility to adjust settings for improving tracking sensibility
  • Create upfront confidence with axiom’s

axiom assays services

 

Service status: Offering

Service description summary:
testing the binding of new ligand molecules and analytics on cell uptake of new molecules with much reduced preparation efforts on our customers' side

Service details:
assay screening, here axiom offers a high throughput technique, where e.g. the uptake of medical drugs into cells can be screened by using much less cells than in (ICP-based) mass spectroscopy analytics

Our value for you: 

  • High through-put screening (1min per vial)
  • Low number of cells to be used (about 100 Cells with axiom vs. 600.000 – 800.000 Cells with ICP-MS)
  • Uptake visible down to 0.2 picogram mass of antibody-functionalized Gold-Nano-Particles (GNP) per tumor cell

axiom ex-vivo services

Service status: Offering

Service description summary:
analytics of e.g. contrast agent retention in samples

Service details:
ex-vivo analytics, e.g. Gadolinium retention in bone tissue or similiar cases, where the customer sends the samples to be probed

Our value for you:

  • Non-invasive, hence samples are not damaged
  • Arbitrary tissue depth in contrast to laser ablation or optical fluorescence
  • High spatial resolution in contrast to Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS)

 

axiom in-vitro services

Service status: Offering

Service description summary:
analytics of e.g. uptake of nanoparticles into cells (example: uptake of nanoparticles functionalized with antibodies by prostate tumor cells)

Service details:
in-vitro analytics, e.g. distribution/dynamics of molecules of interest in artificial tissues, e.g. for the cosmetic industry, where the customer sends the samples to be probed

Our value for you:

  • Non-invasive, hence samples are not damaged
  • Arbitrary tissue depth in contrast to laser ablation or optical fluorescence
  • High spatial resolution in contrast to Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS)

axiom in-vivo small
animal services

Service status: work in progress

Service description summary: 
in-vivo tracking of nanomedicine carriers and/or labelled cells, e.g. T-cells in inflammatory bowel disease models

Service in detail:

in-vivo tracking and analyzing

  1. of cells, e.g. in monitoring cell therapies and/or immune-mediated inflammatory diseases - axiom offers the in-vivo access to the spatio-temporal dynamics of these cells
  2. of medical drugs, which are to be bound on nanoparticles, for assessing the efficacy of drugs by studying their pharmacokinetics and in-vivo pharmacodynamics

in-vivo small-animals analytics, where the animal testing will be designed together with the customer; the induced radiation dose is below damage levels, so the anesthetized test animals will be still alive after the measurement allowing for using the same.

Our value for you:

  • Non-invasive with high spatial and temporal resolution as well as high sensitivity
  • Several time points over an arbitrarily long diagnostic time-window in one and the same animal in contrast to ICP-MS, reducing significantly the number of animal testing
  • In-vivo cell tracking in contrast to PET/SPECT:
    1. measurement of cell types in one and the same animal,
    2. and over an arbitrarily long time window
  • Arbitrary depth in contrast to optical fluorescence
