Effica Biolabs is a contract research organisation offering bespoke preclinical services. We test the therapeutic potential of drugs and devices for a range of immune-related diseases to help establish the smoothest path to clinic. We work with our clients to develop and implement testing approaches that integrate animal disease models and human tissue assays. We can apply our animal models and standardised assays for human peripheral blood analysis, pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics.

We consult

We see ourselves as more than service providers. We are your partners – treating your projects as if they were our own. We work with you to design experiments that will deliver valuable insights and reach critical milestones on time and on budget.

Effica Biolabs has been listed on the Therapeutic Innovation Australia (TIA) Pipeline Navigator. The TIA Consortium is a national network of leading translational research infrastructures which provides access to expertise and services to assist researchers and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the development of new therapeutic products.

Effica Biolabs has close networks with other recommended service providers with whom we can partner to complement and expand your experimental design and testing needs.

We test

Our team has a depth of experience testing different types of therapeutics in animal models and human tissue. Our established suite of models, assays and data analysis expertise, in combination with state-of-the-art facilities and technology platforms, means we can offer both proof-of-concept and larger, more complex experiments to test your therapies.

We deliver

Through a collaborative, seamless process, we generate data to address your specific requirements. We provide reliable results that will help identify the best ‘next step’ for your project – whether that be scientific publications, clinical trials or regulatory submissions.
