Bioassays & Potency Testing

iFyber specializes in evaluating the effects of new biomaterials, medical devices, and investigational compounds on mammalian biological systems. We are focused on implementing high throughput, repeatable, relevant, and quantitative in vitro assays that provide clients with robust data from which to plan future product development and verification efforts.

Medical technologies employ a diverse range of functional materials, from synthetic polymers to recellularized ECM scaffolds. This diversity can lead to variable chemical and biological interactions occurring at the cell or tissue interface. Whether you are looking to transfer or optimize an existing assay for use with your technology or develop one from scratch, our cross-functional expertise in cell biology and interfacial chemistry ensures a swift path to completed assay development and reliable, actionable results.

iFyber offers a variety of standardized and custom functional bioassays for evaluating the effects of a technology on biological responses at the cellular and tissue levels, including:

  • In vitro biocompatibility testing
  • Cell attachment assays
  • Cell viability and growth assays
  • Cytotoxicity assays
  • Cytokine analysis
  • Morphological measurements of neuronal growth
  • Tissue barrier function testing
  • Cell-based potency assays
  • Protease activity
  • Protein analysis
  • Histology and IHC
  • Flow Cytometry/Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS)
