Why Aptamers?

Aptamers offer solutions to many scientific challenges other reagents can’t overcome. Learn More.

Pursue Toxic and Non-immunogenic Targets
Overcome antibody host toxicity or failure to generate an antibody response
Target Small Molecules
Bind molecules ≥ ~60 daltons, 10-fold smaller than the smallest Ab targets
Design Stable Molecular “Switches”
Simplify assay design or modulate therapeutic function
Penetrate Tissues and Cells
Target intracellular proteins; access solid tumors
Perform Simple Chemical Modifications
Enhance affinity, stability, solubility or detection
Improve Reproducibility and Stability
Easily synthesize and re-fold aptamers
