About Us

Aragen Bioscience is a leading contract research organization focused on accelerating product development. Aragen's offerings include antibody discovery, recombinant protein production, and purification, stable cell line development as well as cell-based assays and in vivo models of disease. We offer clients high-quality service and superior R&D partnerships.


The Bioanalytic Characterization group is a multi-disciplinary team that provides characterization support to projects for discovery using state of the art analytical methods and tools.

Key Responsibilities

  • Must have experience with Octet BLI      platform assay design, execution, and analysis
  • Evaluate and develop new binding assays in support of      formulation, developability and comparability studies by Biacore-SPR      (surface plasmon resonance) or Octet-BLI (bio-layer interferometry).      Participate in the cross functional team discussions.
  • Collaborate with teams to design, perform and      continuously improve stress studies used to support early and late-stage      programs.
  • Collaborate with team members and other groups on the      design and performance of structure/function studies 
  • Author technical reports, study protocols and manuscripts      for publication; present at internal and external meetings and      conferences.
  • Operate and maintain SPR and other laboratory      instruments.
