Antibody Drug Conjugation at Abzena

One solution doesn’t fit all

At Abzena we understand that there is no one solution for the development of antibody drug conjugates. Every target brings its own set of challenges to development and you need to find the ideal conjugation to treat your patients.

You can optimise your investment and streamline your ADC development program by utilising Abzena’s bioconjugation technology, knowledge and facilities at every stage. From assessing the efficacy of different conjugation technologies to synthesising chemical payloads, we can support and guide your development of a matrix that can be tested to find the ideal ADC for your patients.

1Conjugation Technologies

There are many varieties of antibody drug conjugates technologies available and each has its benefits, though no single one is optimal for every payload and antibody. Abzena offers access to a variety of conjugation technologies for side-by-side evaluation. Read more >>>


There are many varieties of payloads available for the development of antibody drug conjugates, each with its own toxicity and profile for use in different tumours and with different targeting moeties. We can synthesise chemical payloads at our Bristol, USA, plant or help develop protein and DNA conjugates at our Cambridge, UK site.  Read more >>>

1Analysis and Characterisation

Abzena’s state of the art labs are equipped with an array of analytical and preparative HPLC in instruments and columns allowing the most difficult separations. This, in conjunction with LC/MS and MALDI-ToF mass spectrometers and 500-MHz and 300-Mhz NMR spectrometers, gives the capability to offer clients valuable and reliable analytical services.  Read more >>>


Abzena San Diego and Bristol sites offer large manufacturing capabilities for antibody drug conjugates at multiple scales including non-GMP and GMP manufacturing.  Read more >>>
