Manufacturing Services Case Study – SARS-CoV-2 Antibody Elisa with The Binding Site

IDS were approached by The Binding Site (TBS) in May 2020 to provide manufacturing support for their SARS-CoV-2 antibody Elisa test which TBS had started developing in collaboration with the University of Birmingham.   The team at IDS, based in Boldon UK, worked with TBS to understand the performance requirements of the test, then agree and implement a manufacturing process which could be scaled up to the volumes required to meet commercial demand.

The process involves coating standard ELISA plates with the trimeric spike protein provided by TBS, then washing, drying and stabilizing the coated plates using proprietary reagents developed by IDS. IDS provided TBS with several validation batches to assess the performance of the kit, prior to its successful launch in August 2020.

IDS Boldon has the capacity to provide up to 2 million tests per month to TBS.
