Finest Immunoassay Reagents
Made in the USA
Founded in 1997, Pyxis Laboratories is a California company that specializes in the research, development and production of specialty reagents for the diagnostics, pharmaceutical, environmental, and biotech industries, and research universities.
Since its founding, Pyxis has developed an industry-wide reputation for the highest quality reagents because:
Our scientists are experts in the field of pharmaceutical chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunochemistry, and diagnostic testing
Pyxis’s lot-to-lot reproducibility is unmatched
As a result of these strengths, Pyxis supplies immunoassay reagents to the world’s leading diagnostic companies. We provide an expanding line of critical immunoassay reagents for diagnostics, toxicology screening, biomedical research, clinical monitoring, and in-home-testing. These include standard and custom conjugates and antigen-antibody matched pairs for use in manufacturing immunoassays such asimmunochromatographic assays and EIA for drugs-of-abuse and therapeutic drugs.
In addition to supplying specialty reagents, Pyxis provides custom antigen/hapten synthesis, drug-carrier conjugations, and R & D services. Pyxis Laboratories is approved by APHIS (US Department of Agriculture) to ship medical and veterinary diagnostic reagents and products to the European Union, and has a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) license.
Therapeutic drugs are pharmacological substances administered for various treatments, typically comprising drugs with slim pharmaceutical windows. This sensitive index requires exceptionally accurate dosing to maximize the desirable effects of therapeutic drugs.
Immunochemistry is an area of biochemical research and production that is chiefly concerned with immunological responses and biomolecular mechanics. Its underlying aim is to improve global understandings of antibodies and antigens, and the interplay between the two.
Monoclonal antibodies are identical proteins cloned from a single parent cell, which are capable of binding to a specific biochemical determinant in a sample. They are used in diagnostic and pharmaceutical applications.
Screening tests are performed by immunochromatographic or lateral flow assay, or by an enzyme immunoassay (EIA or ELISA), a biochemical method for detecting the presence of drugs of abuse in a biological sample.
Drug conjugates or hapten conjugates are highly-targeted chemical compounds covalently bound to a protein such as BSA, BTG and/or enzymes such as HRP. These compounds are used in a range of academic pharmaceutical and diagnostic applications.
An immunochromatographic assay (also known as a lateral flow test) is a device used to detect the presence or absence of a specific analyte within a sample.
