Retrogenix’s novel cell microarray technology is the world leading solution for off-target screening and primary receptor identification, providing key data for lead selection and regulatory applications.

Our unique platform assesses binding of test molecules against a comprehensive library of 6,200+ human plasma membrane proteins, secreted proteins, and heterodimeric plasma membrane protein complexes, all expressed in human cells.

Retrogenix works with all of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies, including Novartis and Takeda, many biotechnology companies worldwide, and leading research institutions, to accelerate and de-risk their drug discovery programs. Our technology is widely published in high impact journals, such as Nature, Molecular Cancer, Cancer Cell, mBio and Oncotarget.

Retrogenix has been used in many successful IND and BLA submissions worldwide. The data can replace tissue cross-reactivity studies, and are accepted by FDA, EMA, NMPA, and PMDA.

In 2015, Retrogenix won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the UK’s most prestigious business accolade – in recognition of its innovative work in developing and commercialising the cell microarray technology. This was followed in 2017 by a second Queen’s Award for outstanding achievements in international trade.

Members of our team are regularly invited to present at international events, and we frequently attend conferences, such as BioJapan.

Retrogenix is headquartered in the High Peak, UK, and all project work is undertaken by highly skilled scientists in our specialist laboratory facilities on-site in the UK. The company also has offices in Cambridge, MA, and Tsukuba, Japan. Retrogenix continues to build on its global reputation and the team continues to rapidly expanding to keep pace with demand for its services.
