Welcome to the Alliance Protein Laboratories, Inc. web site! APL offers contract research services in the areas of proteinDoes A.P.L. only work with proteins? and peptide biophysical characterization, protein aggregation, protein purification, and protein stabilization. If you are looking for analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC), circular dichroism, light scattering, DSC, fluorescence, or native gel analysis of your biotech product, or help with your protein aggregation problems, you have found the right place! We have now done such analysis on literally hundreds of products, giving our scientists unparalleled experience.

News! APL has added Dr. N. Karl Maluf to our staff. This has allowed us to expand our throughput for AUC analysis as well as to add additional services. The first three of those new services are differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) using a GE/Microcal VP-DSC, concentration-gradient multi-angle light scattering (CG-MALS) using our Wyatt Calypso, and fluorescence spectroscopy using our Horiba Fluoromax-4P. All three of these new services are now operational. (Sorry, we don't yet have a fluorescence web page.)

A company profile and contact information can be found below. 

Why should you choose A.P.L.?

  1. We've been doing this for over 15 years and have completed over 1,500 projects for 250+ clients world-wide.
  2. At A.P.L. the experiments and data interpretation are done by recognized experts with extensive experience in these biophysical techniques, not by a technician, and on our own equipment, not in a university lab.
  3. We've already worked with over 250 biotherapeutics and vaccines, including most of the major biotech products (cytokines, interferons, growth factors, scores of monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, viral vectors for gene therapy ...), and we have already been working with biosimilars for ~9 years. That collective experience helps us interpret our data, and can help get your product to the patients who need it!

If you are even thinking about using another company for biophysical analysis see questions you need to ask a biophysical lab.
