Niba Labs

Niba Labs is an analytical laboratory with extensive expertise in digital PCR assay development and sample testing, focused on viral vector characterization studies to addresses the analytical needs and challenges of gene therapy products by thoroughly investigating quality attributes such as vector genome titer, genome integrity and impurities.

Niba Labs experts have addressed the issue of AAV vector genome integrity by developing an advanced dPCR multiplex approach.

The team, led by David Dobnik, PhD, pioneered the development of ddPCR analytical methods and provided insights and guidance for the optimisation of the manufacturing process for gene therapy drug for SMA, the globally approved gene therapy product developed by AveXis (now Novartis Gene Therapies).

As of recent, Niba Labs is GMP certified for digital PCR analytical testing and can seamlessly support its customers all the way through product life cycle, from early stages of assay development to assay validation and release testing.
